I would not say careless!
Lack of noise, and plastic propellers are factors.
(The old wood vs Nylon propellers with glow engines caused similar remarks)
I also think that a TX should have some sort of throttle interlock for electric use that presently doesn't exist. On the model side, high current capability causes difficulties in using power interlocks.
