    Doesn't matter much where you drill the holes, but the length of rope is what controls the angle, so if you left extra, you could adjust it however you want. I'd put the rope holes at the middle or...

    Get the 2.0. The 1.0 can't really deal with 6S as well.

    Depending on how far you want to carry them and if you want a long or wide ramp, you can use 2'x3' 1/4" plywood, couple hinges and some rope. I think mine are 24x36x1/4... I should measure them as it...

    The motor in front of the trans is a bit of a perk as far as I'm concerned, especially for electric. Moves more weight towards the front, which you kind of need when going for speed.
