It would indeed. I would think it's worth a shot to just get one out there and see what happens. There must be enough parts in the parts bin to re-issue an existing 1S platform with little development needed and see how it does. I know producing something isn't cheap, and to do it willy-nilly isn't really a responsible business decision, but considering how well the old 1S planes sold, I'd think it would be worth a try.

YES!
It would be so simple for them to try it, why not make a (super-boring) high-wing Cessna or Piper on 1S brushless motor, and see how that sells?

Carefully cutting open a fuselage, removing the silicone, (and usually requires pulling entire motor mount up from foam) re-applying new silicone, carefully taping fuse back together, only to potentially have to repeat same procedure all over again in as little as 20 or 30 flights just isnít really my idea of time well spent anymore.
+1!!!

If it flies, I can crash it.

When you fly 1S in a really small space but you insist on doing aerobatics, loops and rolls, you invariably hit the wall or the floor. Motor mounts are the first thing that loosens up. Slice along the seam with a sharp Xacto to separate the fuselage top/bottom and you can reach right in to get the motor (or in my case, the motor mount). If you're only ever doing it when your motor wears out, it might seem like a PITA. When you end up doing once or twice a night, once each week during the winter, it becomes pretty second nature. Just keep a roll of scotch tape in the flightbox to stick it pack together again afterwards. Peel off the old before applying the new and you can hardly tell it's been cut in to...

Actually, the D.VII electronics/motor are physically identical to the Ares setup, but apparently flashed with a different protocol ... which I was hopeful was Tactic so I could use my Anylink2. It is not!

You're not missing anything ... at all. The only options with the transmitter are servo reversing and "factory reset".

I received mine from the LHS and sadly found all of this out first hand. But on the positive side it is a nice flyer and for $80 I'm happy with it. Hopefully this plane sells enough that it encourages HH to make more that are BNF to Spektrum!
