    To make everything aluminum is not very smart, unless you are going to leave it on a shelf or bring it to show off but not run it. you also adding alot of weight compared to plastic. Probably cost you somewhere around 500-600 bucks to make everything aluminum.

    See rc-fan you got good taste, the HR rockers are NIcE your the only one besides me who wanted to use those!
    And all aluminum will make it quite heavy. I wouldnt prefer that myself.

    i wouldn't run the hr rockers, they allow the rods to pop off the hollowball.....

    i also wouldn't run aluminum everywhere, it will make other stuff break..... other more costly, more difficult to replace parts..... also weighing it down... the merv has a lot of power..... and you can upgrade to get more power... but in doing so, it gets heavier, and more tempermental
