I know some, or many, do see it as 'cheating' -- not me! I see it as improving flight efficiency - and anybody who'd call it 'cheating' is (to me) only crying "Hey, look how good I
am!" It's only false bravado & pure hogwash, to me! Why do you think the radio mfrs would even bother to engineer & put in Mixing capabilities if it weren't to help improve the flying situation. I'm in this to have fun flying my aircraft, not to engage in some kind of fight for survival.
