Guys, are you giving names to your RC gear ?
Like some give names to pets, or ... riffles
If true, what kind of names ? Feminine? asking because I see the model planes are "she" in English forums, not neutral genre as in my language.
I foresee an issue if my wife hear "...and apply a delicate pinch of both Aurora sticks..." when my best friend try to explain me the ultimate F3X pattern...
An issue not so serious if I call my radio..."MyDearWatson"

I never thought about naming my radio, but "Sir Crash-a-lot" comes to mind.

Peculiarity of the English language. Inanimate objects are often referred to as 'she'. Goes back centuries, starting I believe with the naval tradition of referring to boats in the feminine gender (quite possibly because the latin root of navy is of feminine gender?).

The habit tends to be more pronounced where there is something of an emotional relationship with the object in question, and it is of a temperamental or not well understood nature, but something you don't want to do without; rather like a man's typical relationship with a woman!

Your explanation brings a patriotic tear to my eye

To the OpenX9D developers.
It will be neat if we can transfer model setups from Open9X radios (and maybe ER9X too?) to OpenX9D so we can easily migrate up to the new Frsky TX's from older radios. Possible?

One very sweet new option in companion9x is the ability to do a full printout of all of the settings in a model. Now, that doesn't do the programming for you -- but it's a good backup.

companion9x already handles model conversion between the different firmwares (open9x, er9x, ersky9x, th9x) and for open9x the different boards (stock, stock with atmega128, gruvin, sky9x). X9D will just be one more entry in the list of boards

Here's a testimony to Steven's integrity, where he explains to me the case where I wouldn't want to buy his product. I was impressed that he took the time to type such a good explanation, and I learned a lot from what he told me.

I took the liberty of posting it since it had some good information that I wasn't able to find anywhere else.

I still like calling his board the SmartiePants, though.

I probably used wrong words. I meant that the firmware did not seem real. I know that radio itself is real. I'm impatiently waiting for it's availability. Looking forward to day when I will be able to sell my MX-20.

Yeah, the last char choice is obviously provocative...
May I suggest "AH, crap" instead ?
