Im not very good with choosing a power combo but this one was ok. The 2212/34 is good for planes 10-25 oz. This one was probably at around 12oz or, but don't quote me on that. It had fairly decent punch out but could have been better and hovered about half throttle swinging an 11" prop.
I had spoken with spectrum reps a few weeks ago and here's what he told me. The update is for people who are going to be flying at events where 50 or more 2.4ghz radios might be flying at any one time and that If I never flew at large competitions, DSM2 was fine to stick with. There may be other reasons for the upgrade they arent talking about but Im going to take their word at face value.
When I was at RCX, DW Foamies was there demo'ing a bunch of planes. I jokingly said, I'm going to have to crash one of my planes first so I can free up a power set......well? be careful what you wish for.
