Carbon cub S+ mods

I would be interested to see anyones mods to one of these aircraft I have ordered a FT2218 and wil be upgrading to a 2200mah battery and larger ESC as a retired engineer I would be interested in airframe modifications I have a few ideas
I have the carbon cub S+ and fly it with 2200 mah batteries all the time with stock motor and esc. I set the timer to about 8 minutes and will have about 3.8 volts per cell left in the battery. That also allows me to miss a landing and have enough battery to come around again. The only mod I have done to mine is to pull the GPS. I had the champ S+ and had it fly away never to be seen again so the GPS was a concern.
I run admiral 3s 35c 2200, they are 176g / 6.2oz.
And Thrust 3s 40c 2200, they are 192g / 6.8 oz.

I set either battery about 3/8 to 1/2 inch from the back of the battery compartment.
