Blame Siri if you don't like it. I talk into my phone, She does the spelling.. Do you see the irony?

The forum has spoken! I was also thinking what the as3x might do to the servos. BC those little planes are constantly chattering.
Are the EXP's imac legal ? For some reason I thought they aren't ...
I can understand the overuse of a tech to the point of droneism.
RC first started very primitive - then advances lead to better things like expo/dr-then computer radios telemetry stuff-then to fpv and droneism.
Don't the helo guys use gyros?
I don't think I'd have the guts to tell a pilot of the f35,f22,osprey,super hornet, hey man good flying but its the gyros making it easy :0
I don't plan at all on getting one of these. But I know someone here will...
I'm just curious what the results will be that's all. I still think the servos could be a issue though..

Relax, it wasn't a personal attack. It was a response to a specific point you made:

Spell checkers help me, that's for certain. It's a tool that allows me to not have to remember sequences of letters. Doesn't always work, but I am thankful for them, because I hate memorizing sequences of letters.

Out of curiosity how would this possibly feel in a 60 inch?
I've only flown once the sbach 3d as3x..
And parkzone has a new plane (ugly as all get) with the new RX coming out, I wouldn't use this, but some will love it

I find most people dramatically overstate and overestimate the wind speeds they are flying in...

That said, I encourage everyone I have flown with to fly in ALL weather that is not freezing- it only makes one a better pilot
