I'd love to share my "ultimate" LiPo battery ideas for future releases, but they are too revolutionary to discuss at this point :-)

Thanks, can't wait, should have known insider info. In my opinion that is going to fix a lot of issues.

How about a complete switch away from the current thinking. Use smaller motors and smaller speedos to lower the weight of the electronics side of a TC.

Yes, absolutley. Its already there with micro systems, and we have seen that the current technology is far more that what most can effectively drive, and the wear and tear of the driveline pays a hefty price. A in between would work very well. And since the rules are being re-written so to speak, you may as well make it as right as you can the first time.

My only question would be, how do you envision ROAR to incorporate this without alienating themselves from the IFMAR standards.

This sort of thing has to be worked out in advance. Decide specs among the different organizations and determine an implementation deadline so everyone has time to make stuff that works.

I've been thinking about that for 12th scale... 380 sized brushless with a 7.4 lipo... It would weight less than what we use now and probably offer the same performance but better handling...
