Default RNAseq by PacBio

Hi, all
I was wondering if PacBio is an idea platform for RNAseq due to its long read length.
Or Is it good to combine PacBio data with illumina's?

For looking at isoforms of a small set of genes, almost definitely, pending you can make ds cDNA long enough.

Almost certainly not enough tput to be useful for whole transcriptome.

PacBio is also going to be more expensive overall. Error rate with PacBio will cause problems unless you have other supplemental data (illumina, Solid etc) or a good reference sequence.
