Do you mean you removed the BODA on the O7 RX? I'm not certain that's a good idea. It certainly won't cost the weight you added with the metal motor mount, but could save your model.

A little weight on this thing won't hurt. It'll just fly Even Better in wind. Who wants a floaty jug??

Remember to double check your CG before you fly. I had to add an ounce of lead to the tail of frame #2 to get it to balance properly. And I had to fly her into the ground at 60mph to figure that out (frame survived, just a little wing glue needed! new cowl, prop) The stock mount was unscathed, BTW, which is why I keep saying "what on earth could be better than the stock part" for that motor mount.

For a cheaper motor, I've got an exceed 3020-950kv motor in my 3DHS plane that weighs HALF of the P25 for the same output. I may try this in the jug to get it to balance without the lead tail weight.

I run an A9 as well. I suggest running a SPC lead off of the ESC for this plane.
