He really asked for REASONS !!!!!!
All I see here are misunderstandings and "whistling in the dark".
Yep, the $$$ are real but over rated as you could go 2.4GHz SS on new stuff and stay with the 50/72 MHz with your existing Tx/Rx combos. Currently the "used" price locally is "YOU CANNOT GIVE IT AWAY !!!"
The guys I talk to from all across the country tell me it is the same in their areas
We didn't have a single HAM who did not switch to Spektrum at once.
I switched from six and 72 synthesized the day Spektrum was announced !!!!
I've been Mode 1 since digital Propo was announced so I had to wait two weeks for the Mode 1 availability.
My 10X plus all Rx's were gone in 24 hours So all I had to do was plug in and fly.
_)____and I'm STILL flying! Not even a hiccup.
That was 2006 and I still haven't seen or heard of a local flier (we have many clubs) who has "gone in" on 2.4 GHz. While I fly Spektrum that includes the FASST systems too, even though they were "late to the party".
Believe what you wish, _____BUT y'all are way out of date and in some cases totally misinformed!
You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink !
