The point is to not bind with someone else's heli at the field, as I'm sure you know. If you fly alone, it's never an issue. I've heard this for years and never come across it, but last week, I went to go fly with my buddy Travis MCH. Neither one of us was on fixed ID, and even though we've flown together lots of times, we did this 'double bind' thing on accident -- TWICE! The first time his V120D05 bound with my V120D02. It was pretty freaky to see, and we caught it quick, thank goodness--before any spool ups. We even set them next to each other, spooled them both up, and tried to take off. Given the different settings, the D05 took off first, and I set it down there.

It's probably not a huge deal with a micro, but with a larger bird . ... .
