now it comes down to the cost of a new set of 10s batteries vs. the cost of a Xera 4035/3Y.

The Pletti costs about 600usd and it is a good solid motor, but the experiences have shown it is not happy using 12s batteries.
The Xera costs about 200usd and it is showing it's qualities as also being a good solid motor and is compatible with 12s's.

What is "quite warm"? Do you have a temperature meter?
I have a meter, just haven't taken a reading - will do so on my next flight.
What is your AUW?
20 pounds.
How long are you flying with this weight?
I keep flights at about 5 min.
Have you done a flight time test? (80% rule)
Please clarify. I'm uncertain what you mean by 80% rule. Does that mean flying the helicopter for a fresh battery and flying the flight packs to an 80% drain?

I looked at the Xera site. What are your reasons for recommending the 4035/3y over the 4035/4y?
