The 50 points pay for two abilities:
1. Always reaching the drop point alive, vs deep strike where really bad stuff happens.
2. Allowing your army to start on the map right where you want them to, be it on an objective or getting your heavy flamer next to that unit of genestealers.
Look at it this way:
1. the pod lands
2. the troops have to unstrap
3. the doors have to drop open
All this time the enemy has been doing what?
Yes, I will be using the lash on that unit again so I may touch your models a second time.
