I would hate to see it happen again. I've read quite a few horror stories about the Spektrum system. I've read that even after range checks, the receiver can drop the bind and the plane comes down. Any one here have that experience?
You have just opened a can of worms here. Bottom line its a Ford, Chevy issue. It's whatever you feel comfortable with. Seen both systems go dark for no good reason.
