As many have said.. you can buy alot of brushed motors for the cost of a brushless kit and no one can argue with that. But staying with brushed does require more effort. In order to get a reasonable life (over 50 flights) out of a brushed motor you need to let the motor cool between flights and spray wd40 or deoxit into the motor every 5 flights. Not so with the brushless motor.. You can fly battery after battery with no concern and also gain a modest power increase to boot. So it depends on how much you fly, if flying outside is a desire, and how long you plan on keeping your 4#3b. In my case ..I plan on keeping it in my stable so upgrading worked for me.

Well worth it. I've bought 2. One for my son, the other taught my father to fly heli's. Lot's of flights on both brushless with no problems.
