I haven't seen anyone upgrade the two motors to a 8.5mm anywhere on the web. If the brick can handle an upgraded motor, there is a lot of potential for modifications. Since the plane only binds to the included transmitter, an upgraded brick would serve this plane well.

Here's what I've done to my duet so far:
I removed the tape holding the fuselage and placed white rubber bands around the canopy. This allows easy access for the inside. Also, I added 3 led lights for night flying; Powered by a single cell watch battery, which lasts 1hr+. The entire mod "costs" around 6 grams. I will be posting pictures soon. Has anyone upgraded the motors?
