    What's the reason for going for the 3536 rather than the lighter 3530 motor? The extra power?

    I'm currently using the SK3 3530 1460kv (430W) on my DR XL and it's got enough power, but unfortunately there's a problem with the motor not liking quick throttle. Different ESC timing does not fix it. So I'm going to replace it with the 3530 which Crash Test Hobby recommends.

    And yeah I like the orange leading edge on your GR. Tempted to steal the idea
