Of course, the extra power of the BL main gives extra options. But if we all push ahead, someone is bound to come up with an optimum configuration - and a fully FBL heli, under $200, that'll come close to CP performance (if BThirsk's mods work!)
And I won't need to go the MCPx way
The extra weight is my biggest worry... :/
But I thought of replacing the tail boom + fins with carbon ones.
It won't be much less weight... but we'll see
