I'll agree to disagree with this sidebar discussion. 2 seconds of spool up is from idle to max. This is so miniscule it's not worth arguing over, do what you want and I'll do what works for me. I've been doing this for years, it's a non issue as long as one knows how to fly. If one tip stalls from a lack of instant 100 percent power then the flying technique is so bad a tip stall would have happened sooner or later anyway. A stabilized, decently planned approach takes care of any of that nonsense. Instant power often causes more problems than it can solve.
If you want to talk safety, then there should be absolutely no flying what so ever due to possible radio glitches and no crossing the street due to possible instant death by auto and no going out side as you may get hit by a falling meteorite. You have to manage your risk. Flying a stabilized approach takes care of the need for instant power, a normal person can fly just fine with a minimal throttle smoothing program set in to help manage the dentist drill effect.
