No argument here. I intend to run the EF Power Train System. They did an excellent job. I tried for 2 days running clacs and nothing can beat it. In fact no other combination can equal the performance. Sure I can find Motors and ESC combos power can deliver more thrust and power, but requires significantly more weight and volume that would not fit in the cowl, and larger heavier battery. In other words EF combo delivers the highest Thrust to Weight Ratio. They managed to put 10 pounds of chit in a 1 pound box. My hat is off to them.
As you said the only improvement I can make is with Servos. I understand why they chose MG65's. They are good inexpensive analog Servos and should work fine. Then you told me about the 5070 which is a significant upgrade with 4 times the power, with only 1.8 grams more weight per unit.
I am a happy camper on paper so far.
