I love the flitetest ending - not to bad maiden considering that it has the same aerodynamics as a pregnant cow.

a new term - 1-hit wonders :D

Nice episode, but I think, that actual Tx/Rx is an overkill in most situations (especially if it's not a computerized radio). I think that simple servo tester instead would do just fine (but keep in mind that not all servo testers will work - it has to work with power coming from ESC's BEC)...

All of these:

Should be fine.
