Question:

Do I need to upgrade my ESCs if I am getting HV LiPos?

Say, for instance, I want to use Revolectrix Blend 435 on the SU-35S with YEP 80 ESCs.

Will that be okay, or will the ESCs mishandle the extra tension?

You will be fine with the yep or any other ESC, the higher voltage lipos are only a little bit higher. The real advantage is that under power the nominal voltage is higher, so yes it will pull a little more amps but nothing to go changing your esc's. the difference is like going from a 30c pack to a 60c pack, under power voltage is held higher thats all.

on a side note, love your videos, but man that music is really bad, I always have to watch your videos on mute...

Nose leg lateral support

After investigating the nose leg I decided there is no way to give it better lateral support....
Because the steering arm is quite thick, and the bay doors are quite thick, there is just no room left to add anything substantial to support the leg laterally.
It could probably be done with a 2mm/2.5mm alloy plate, just below the steering arm, if the bay doors were made thinner. But then it would need to be done so that the brace does not hit that either (when the leg stores). So all in all it is not really viable to do anything of good use.

Just Longitudinal support via the brace will have to do.....

some of the Freewing 6S ESCs have given some problems saying they won't work with fully charged 435s. When they are charged at lower voltages 4.2 etc that has worked for them.

Yep is supposed to be a little more overspecd so you should be fine with them. I would go HV ESC if you can though.
