The last time the rain stopped long enough, to let me get up our slope with a favourable wind to fly the Dorado, I easily went through most of the 1600 battery capacity in less than a couple of hours and regretted not having a second battery. To me, R/C flying has always meant doing lots of aerobatics. I fly the Tomcat the same way and I'd like a 2300 battery for peace of mind.

The Dorado has just enough accessibility to allow battery changes, but exchanging the battery in the Tomcat is not possible without disturbing the Rx and wiring too much.

The two slopers I have, and the one that's the subject of this thread, are only sport planes, albeit high performance ones, so there's no excuse for trading off accessibility just for style.
