The SE is worth the money but it depends on you if you really need it. The R90 std is very good already (but needs some minor upgrades). The SE problem with the tail rotor screws should be solved already in the newer kits.

"Need" depends on your flying style. Most people consider at least a metal headblock and washout base worthwile. Harder dampers, better cooling fan, carbon fins, ...

Both SE and STD will boomstrike if you bang the sticks and headspeed gets to low.
As on any other heli

What I found interesting is that Alan Szabo is using the stock STD frames rather than the carbon frames and stiffeners...

Does that mean the STD frames are overall lighter and stiffer than the carbon and stiffeners?

Lighter? Yes.
Stiffer? Don't think so...

I'm still using the original 2mm frames that came with the 60 v1 kit on my fully converted raptor 90, they have been bent through crashes and re-straightened, still flies like a dream.
