I'm curious as to what you've learned, specifically. I've been using Spektrum for a while..first as a module in my Futaba, and now a Dx8. I've only experienced one brown out in that time. It occurred when the plane was almost directly overhead. Luckily I got control back and landed safely. Never was able to pin point the problem.
Although I generally like the Spektrum, I've always had the feeling that the quality control just was not up to par with the likes of Futaba and the other. My Spektrum transmitter module died after only about a year of use (luckily not while I was flying a plane!). I got it replaced, but I was always a bit nervous about using it.
