No doubt, and you’re correct that it doesn’t make it right. I work at a small business that makes innovative aerospace systems... and I'm proud of it. I would feel terrible about myself had I gone through school and ended up at a place that just makes lowest common denominator copies
I give my money to similar companies who are doing something exciting and progressing as opposed to being bottom feeders. I don’t only do this on principal, I do it because I feel that a good percentage of the time I will end up with a superior product. I’m definitely not rich, but my time for flying is short. I don’t have time to modify poor designs.
Maybe after these guys have put out copies long enough they will have enough experience to design something original that also flies well… seems to be how a lot of companies have come up in the past.
