We're concerned about safety because we have more fun outside of the hospital or the courtroom. It is difficult to fly an RC plane in either of those places. Therefore being safe is a lot more fun than "Just grab a plane and have a go in the park, lighten up and don't be so serious!"

And as you imply, ignoring safety is to invite scrutiny by the feds, who are famous for knee-jerk reactions with bad consequences. And usually it is the innocent who are punished while the guilty fly on, care free.
I'll drink to that.

Helicopters - now that's a whole different story, dang dangerous things!!

What's with those heli fanatics anyway? An RC model should be like your life philosophy, always moving forward. Not sideways, backwards, twirly whirly upside-down. Someone should show 'em a good fixed wing model pronto!

It'll work - I promise!

I know, I think we're a little mentally ill... I spent yesterday repairing two helis I don't have the parts for, but it's cold out and I don't have anything better to do

Take any radio or any electrical appliance for that matter below the threshold voltage it needs to operate and it will brown out. That makes the list of electrical devices that have brown-outs include Futaba and every other RC receiver that ever existed, now exists or ever will exist. Don't feed 'em right and they get cranky.

Brown-outs are the fault of the operator, because the pilot is responsible for the working of every component of the system he flies.

It's Spektrums fault the operator didn't ensure their was sufficient voltage?

And next time I run out of gas it will be the fault of the car maker?

The next time I go overdrawn it will be down to the bank?

And fat people can blame the food companies?

Personal responsibility?

Stupid is as stupid does.

Guys, I fly with a Spektrum radio and love it. I was just trying my hand at a little soft-core trolling

German cars have bad repair records. Just because you pay more doesn't mean it's going to flawless.

You wanna eliminate "Brown outs' ? Easy just run 72meg man
Personally I run Electron 6 knockoffs, $7 on Ebay, sure they glitch from time to time but a good flyer can deal with that .Every time I hit a momentary lockout I just think of the money I saved.
