Why not. As long as you have an ESC that has a good governor, it just seems easier to me.

Back in the "bad old days", trying to adjust my throttle curve (on a glow engine) to approximate constant head speed was always the holy grail for the setup. Now you just set the desired rpm. What can be easier? No throttle curves to screw around with. Just a constant rotor speed throughout the flight--no battery drop off to constantly battle.

Of course you are evening out the power during the flight, so no spike of power at the beginning and no drop off at the end.
