Using a mk12 purple RCS console costs a console slot. To get my Fleet Defiant to 42.7 turn rate with 28.36 impulse speed, I had to use a mk 12 purple RCS console and Tachyokinetic converter and bumping my engine power to 52/30.
I'm at a disadvantage, because I had to spend more power to and dedicate a console slot to match your turn rate. Where as, you can use that extra power in other subsystems to help boost your heals or shield resistance. You also have an extra engineering slot for armor/alloy or another universal console slot.
But, whatever, you took the effort to win the lottery. So, you should be entitled to a better ship.
