Bruce, sorry for the basic question. Do I understand correctly that with ppm (I'm lazy) I can have more than 4 channels on a 4 channel receiver?

Thanks for the video.

The problem is that when you have lots of channels with high values the sync pulse gets shorter to keep the frame (a set of channel values) to the same overall length. Once the sync pulse is too short the flight controller has no idea whether that pulse is a channel or a sync pulse. The sync pulse is there to reset the flight controller's internal counter for the current channel that's coming in over the wire back to zero. If it thinks the sync pulse is a channel that won't happen and everything will go to shit. If I understand what Bruce said you should be fine with 4 channels even with the shorter frame length.

So on one hand you have the hobbists saying, "Everything is OK, no need to regulate us" but on the other hand you have the FAA saying "Everything is not OK, we need to protect and regulate avaition"

I'm thinking the truth is somewhere in the middle.  I'm still pretty new to this hobby. A lot of stuff I've learned has been done so through trial and error. In a perfect world,accoding to hobbists, I would have been mentored by someone with enough expirience to show me the difference between safe and unsafe practices.
In reality, I broke a lot of stuff, cut my hands (just once but once is enough) flown in places where I shouldn't have.  Why did I do this? Because I didn't know any better.

The FAA does have a valid point.  I don't agree that a ban or strict regulation is the best answer.  There is nothing prventing me from buying an RC plane and flying it right next to an airport. As everything is now, there is no way for a novice flyer to know to stay under 400ft or to not fly close to an airport.  How does that get fixed?

It get's fixed with regulation. Most sensible model aircraft pilots agree on that. Where we take issue is the extent to which they regulate certain areas of the hobby, and the poorly defined reasons for such regulations. No FPV? No commercial use? You gotta be kidding me! The FAA just hasn't tried hard enough to create sensible and justified rules.

I am pretty sure it's the same density as a Gopro but the choice of the design makes it look that way...

No wallet here, just the essentials. Yes, the rubber bands are essential.

Fun article. 
The air traffic control tower is the most important part of any airport, yet it's also the most unacknowledged. Fliers seldom stop to admire their ethereal beauty and futuristic silhouettes. We're missing out: These towers are fascinating architectural specimens.

The Food at Wild Ginger was good. The service there left a lot to be desired. Our waitress (there were only 2 working that night) was nice and apologized for the long wait times, 10 mins to be seated, 20 for water to arrive ect. It was a Saturday night and I'm sure they normally staff with more than 2 waitresses. I would go again and I would reccomend it to anyone who wants to get away from TGI Fridays or anyone willing to try something different. I would give it a higher rating if the speed of service was a litttle better.
