FlySky RF lacks failsafe. It doesn't have a range check mode. Receivers are big. Receiver antennas are quite fragile. Performance can be quite variable depending on the actual unit you have. FlySky sometimes do undocumented and potentially unwanted changes (latest TX modules set all servos to center when they don't receive a signal from the radio, causing motor starts when the radio is actually trying to prevent you from causing that situation with a "throttle not idle" warning),...

It works, but really isn't a good, trustable solution. And when you can buy an FrSky plug-in module that solves all of these, works awesome and adds telemetry for $25, there are few reasons to stick with it.
