Default Radio feature questions

You will get a lot of different answers to this query; but IMHO, PCM is not necessary for most of us unless you just want to spend more money than the other guy does. I have been flying RC for over 30 years and find regular PWM (sometimes refered to as FM although both PWM and PCM are FM) does everything just as well and sometimes better. This includes the big gasoline powered jobs as well as the typical RC planes. Now, helicopter pilots do get some benefit from PCM so it is not totaly a luxury.
