I agree 100% but for $99 with plenty of parts available at local shops, they are what they are. If you are willing to pay a little more for a brushless ultra micro, there are
options out there.
Although, if you just like these ParkZone planes like I do, I can't imagine Horizon upgrading the design for much less than it would cost to "hot rod" it yourself... that is, if you are willing to wait for HobbyKing's shipping.
