I dislike them because in the beginning they put out a system that would disconnect for several seconds if you got a momentary drop in voltage with , what had been until then, the standard rc power system of four cell battery packs. When people started loosing planes it was blamed on inadequate power systems which was true FOR THEIR SYSTEM.
They put a flawed design on the market and then blamed people for using what was, until then, adequate power supplies. I thought, and still think, that it was a dishonest response on their part. I owned an early one and junked it after I verified the problem. I do not trust them to this day

Define flawed as it pertains to this discussion. I haven't been able to incur even one lockout, brownout or otherwise loose connectivity with any of my models in the last 5 or so years. Primarily high powered EDF (3000w and above)

We flew these early systems (DX7 and 7000rx) on dual four cell packs -with no problems .
If you had done some simple tests on the power draw - you would have seen the real problem
