It won't be much less weight... but we'll see
A carbon boom will lose a little weight. The plastic fines are lighter than carbon.
I just weighed the brushless motor and the blade holder at 16,grams.
The stock motor is 13grams by itself. That does not include the weight of the jack shaft and gears, so I don't see weight as an issue.
