With respect, experiences of 27MHz flying aren't really applicable to today. My concern is that (in the UK at least), toyshops are rammed full of cheap Chinese radio control toys - all on 27MHz. Some of these transmit on 'not very narrow' frequencies. Owners of these toys are not going to check who may be flying in the vicinity on 27MHz.

Perhaps in the US you are blessed with being able to fly miles from wherever anyone else may be transmitting, and then of course it will be as safe now as it was in the 60s & 70s. But personally, living on this overcrowded isle, I wouldn't consider 27MHz for anything other than ground vehicles, and I still would urge 2.4Mhz (or the 'airborne only' 35 / 72MHz) for the radio link itself.
