Hyper-V: DC P2V or side by side migrate

Hello,

I need to change a domain controller (2008R2 X64) from being a Virtual machine on a Hyper-v cluster, to being on a physical server (likely a Dell R610).  

What I need to know is will life be easier and safer if I do a side by side migration, building a totally new DC moving things like fsmo’s and eventually switching off the old DC, OR should I try and migrate the existing DC from virtual to physical (V2P)?

If going the P2V route, can people make recommendations around best practices for doing this?

Any information would really help me get started on how best to achieve this.

Thanks in advance.
