Nice shopping list, Steve, but I wouldn't have gone for the $$$ battery tray. Most of us have gone to the credit card mod where you cut off the U-shaped pieces that actually hold the battery and substitute a piece of plastic that is similar to the credit cards you get in the mail all the time when the banks want to sign you up. Any thin piece of plastic will do. You attach Velcro to that piece of plastic and to the battery and you're done. The reason for doing this is because most after market batteries are slightly wider or this or that and they won't fit in the stock size holder. It also offers you the opportunity to skootch the battery more forward than stock to give you better center of gravity (CG) for better forward flight. BTW, the Ar6100 and 3-in-1 is OK. In some cases, the separate receiver and 3-in-1 is more desirable. If you go brushless, you'll put the 3-in-1 aside and still have a good receiver to use.
Show him your picture, Mike.
