    I"m uncertain, but imagine they're all quite similar (but the higher end ones using FAAST or something might do better).

    One thing I've read tho, is that you'd want to use a 5-cell power source (like the Lipo's they sell), vs the 4-cell ones that have lower voltage. - the 5-cell puts out more power (maybe?)
