    Just wondering if there are any downsides to ditching the X5 mount. I have no plans to get an X5 and it just seems to be deadweight?

    The x5 mount has better shock dampers. It seems to be more solid. The x3 mount is wobbly.

    The X5 mount is a compression mount whereas the X3 one is a suspension one.
    Compression mounts give better performance and the whole footprint of the X5 mount is larger.

    For the benefits in results I would trade the few seconds loss of flight time and stay with the X5 mount.

    Ditch the mount? No, no, no.
