It's been all quiet on the FCC front. I think most the phones that are coming before summer have already passed through.
No doubt, some very cool hobbies in this user base. Remote helos, eh? Just how hard are those to fly? I was talking to a helicopter pilot last week who told me that, at least with the real thing, it's like standing on a 2x4, balancing on a beach ball, while spinning a golf ball on the tip of a pin!
Definitely off topic

Oh, and +1 on the FCC filings.
