Do you mean you'd prefer not to see that?

I think they should get away from those all in one boards as much as possible. It's a bummer when you have a failure on one of those and have to replace an expensive board. If the electronics were modular, you could replace only the failed component at a much more reasonable cost.

I think one of the big negatives of the mCPX BL was the controller board. The failure rate was high and people had to pay half as much as a whole new heli to replace it. On mine I changed out the electronics for separate boards, controller, ESC, receiver. Couldn't do that only a few years ago until they started making micro FBL controllers and micro receivers.
