If you think that the hop-up parts make you fly better then rock on and have fun.
I do NOT think they make me fly better, what I do think however (and what really annoys me at times) is that so many people keep on just generalizing (and repeating without putting stuff to the test themselves) that hopups are bling and only add weight.
(read through the pages here and everybody and their brother will say that. But fact is, that is is by far no longer THAT simple anymore. And once you break a couple of frames/canopy mounts (and again, this is a different heli, so it is not really that applicable to you personally, but it is sure applicable to demonstrate that generalizing about hop ups is suboptimal and inappropriate) then you will maybe also say in the long run this is not really spending money on something "worthless"
