I'm curious too. I heard Direct Drives are OK on like 3S Standard CY planes but never tried them. I would think that they tend to make you fly more "pattern-ish".
I have about 15 Direct Drives sitting around here and never used one on a Twisted Plane. The thinking there was that you can spin the SF prop faster, get better torque rolls and superior stability while making the plane fly slowly. You can still of course make the plane go way fast enough to be exciting but you should also be able to slow it down with more throttle in than on a Direct Drive. Flying slow and low would be good for some precision maneuvering and practicing new 3D aerobatics. Any other thoughts on it... I'm interested.
