He mods them until they are unreliable. I understand wanting to mod a plane, but sometimes you need to just sit back and enjoy as is.
I sometimes wonder if people have forgotten that other planes can be built - you aren't stuck with one. This is also a case of "dazzling the uninformed" with things that don't matter. There's lots of "upgrades" which do nothing for performance, might even hurt performance. Like, I always LOL when I see a Honda Civic with a big wing on the back - that does not do anything but slow you down and make you look stupid. To make a Honda Civic go fast, you remove all the bling, because it's just extra weight, and no amount of wings or fart pipes will change F=MA - a law of the universe as far as I know.
So... don't get caught on the upgrade bandwagon - it's a waste of money and time and will more than likely cause more problems than it solves.
