I don't know how many of you have worked with touch screens on a transmitter, aka 14MZ but I don't like it. I have found that having the correct buttons (non-touch) is much quicker to setup any aircraft.

The reason for so many touch screens, I believe, is that it is cheaper to cut out the switches. Also, in the case of a telephone, you can make the screen bigger since you don't have enough real estate.

But in the case of our transmitters I much prefer switches. The 12Z and 12FG have pretty good setups. The 8FG does not since it has a touch wheel that is a pain to use. Also, you can accidentally touch it with the palm of your hand while flying and activate it. New is not always better. I want switches and buttons.
