Yup I had the 8x1700 setup in an MPX Micro Jet when they first came out in Feb. 2003. At 22.5 oz that was a real pig to solo launch - LiPos would have made a real difference. After 12 months I'd had enough and moved everything to a good old Projeti which took the weight much better, and is even nicer (and quicker!) now with the Kokams.
