A TX should be designed with function over style. All the flashy, sexy, look at me crap is silly and likely comes courtesy of the marketing department having more influence than the engineers. Chrome flavored plastic is an insult to real metal. Even if it was metal I would never want polished metal on my TX to do nothing but attract finger prints and reflect the sun into my eyes while I'm trying to fly. There's a reason the "glare sheild" on a full scale aircraft is finished in mat black.
