DSM2 in Glendowie

A while ago I used single receiver DSM2 gear with a spektrum DX6i controller.  My experience is to not use this setup in models that you are going to be pulling tricks with.  They claim that the reset time is 1 second.  What isn't mentioned is the 2 seconds prior discovering that it needs to reset.  This video is a flight that had three of those heart stopping, non-responsive controller, seconds.  This happened to me on 3 occasions that I noticed, worst case while in a vertical dive!

I now use my single receiver unit in a glider and twin+ receivers in everything else along with a JR controller.  Haven't had a problem since.
