For the people that don't see a need for it, I believe they're concerned about adding complexity for what they see as no benefit:

- Adding this feature costs something initially, The dev team has limited time to develop and QA the firmware and settings software. If this feature gets done, something else doesn't. Maybe that something else is some configurability in the governor bailout or something completely new and unexpected like acro delay. I'm not saying the new feature doesn't get done, it just may get done later.

- Adding this feature costs a small bit of effort for every release. It increases complexity of the Spirit firmware and setting software. It requires a bit more dev and QA time every release just because it exists. It may have its own bugs, it may cause subtle bugs with other features, or it's just one more part of the code for developers to have to understand to work on the product.

Of course, this is all guess work about other people's motivations on an Internet forum so I should probably just shut up

I do have quite a bit of experience with making these sorts of trade offs on software projects, so I see it from that point of view. I'm not advocating for one side or the other. Just pointing out what I saw implied but not stated from the "no" camp.

If the flip is too fast then the heli itself can be flipped too fast and the cyclic ring should be reduced.

Also, Once you get to an acro rescue you don't need any of those extra settings.

I understand the desired result, however I don't think an extra setting in rescue is the correct solution.
+1

Also all extra code adds the risk of breaking code elsewhere.
Testing more and more code becomes a burden.
Be critical on what you put in. Eventually the best for all.

I believe that these technical questions concern the developper, who has said that if a large number of pilots asks for this adjustement , then he can incorporate it in the next firmware 1.4....

So wait and see if a large number of pilot asks for it....this is the aim of this petition.

For us it is no problem to add the feature.
With high probability it will be included in the upcoming version 1.4. or there will be different solution for mentioned problems.

That one is called a Referendum, and:
(a) it is something different
(b) does not apply here, since there is no reason why someone should try to avoid that we all have additional tuning capability on the unit.

If you don't want to use the new feature, don't use it, but let it happen, for the ones who want to use it.

Please, be logical.

And apply Mutual Respect.
Wow..... you're just the guy I need to talk to..... I've always had confusion with 1) our electoral college, 2) gravity, and 3) women.....

Your post very well describes my reservations. Spirit have a limited development resource and I'm not sure this is the best place for it to be focussed.
If the Spirit team spent all their efforts implementing every random whim then long term development plans would go nowhere. But of course if you ask a forum "hey, who wants a new dial to play with in the software" most will say 'yes please' regardless of if they would use it or not.

But if it's in the plan then fine, maybe it's trivial task to implement, I don't know? I've no problem with it being added if the majority feel the need. I might even try tweaking it myself if i got bored.

Uh... Is that a yes then since Tomas said it's not an issue to add the feature? Lol.

Yeah, sounds like it's already on his 'list of things to do' so i guess the whole thread was pointless now you come to mention it

Nah, it helped, he was on the fence before this thread and said if there's support, he'd do it. Great developer.
