exactly, I just commented with similar. I also get tired of hearing about people crashing giant scale airplanes and losing a lot of money because of spectrum. Then you find out that their ignition and receiver we're on nickel metal or NiCad batteries. You're going to blame the receiver for you cheaping out on your batteries? Anyone that's flying giant scale and not using life or lipos, hate to say it but deserve what they getNot to be rude but in that video my eyes see the antenna pointing down. Now according to Spektrum the antenna should be in the up position then bent back one position towards you. And like any other radio on the market there is that 1% room thati mentioned that is for equipment failure. There is a friend of mine in the club who crashed 4 planes this past year do to failure of a Futaba radio. It was sent back to their service dept. to be checked over. The service dept found that the radio was going in and out of failsafe mode. Wow a Futaba can you believe that the Futaba guy's won't but that's the facts. Oh another thing brownouts make me laugh I have talked to many guy's with ni cad or nimh haven't charged their batteries for 2 to 3 weeks and then come to the field to fly are you kidding me charge those batteries each time right before you fly brownouts eliminated. Spektrum the most sold radios out there. If the radio was not good enough to use for my giant aircraft would not be definitely good enough to fly my foamies or park models IMO. There are those who don't keep up on proper battery maintenance and there are many. Those who have crashes using receivers that are damaged etc. So whether you use Spektrum , Futaba, Airtronics, or JR they are all good radios. But if you think one brand is better than the other you haven't done your homework.
