I'm not sure if Juergen just has issues with Jeti or with all products that are not Hitec A9?

My fear is that we will all end up with touch screens in the future because designers and not users will incorporate them into all new products. Hopefully I'll be proved wrong because they are difficult/impossible to use without looking at them which is something you don't want to do when flying. Buttons and dials, OTOH can be accessed without taking your eye off the model allowing you to make minor trim/mixing adjustments in flight.

And I commend Jeti for putting the screen in the right place, unlike Hitec, Futaba, JR and Spektrum who all put them at the bottom. I use a DX6i for indoor models and even changing model memories requires me to remove the neckstrap to see what's going on.
