A problem is a problem, no matter how big or small.

Never a question by anyone that the problem existed as described. The question was solely in the context of whether it is necessarily justified for guys to do things such as grounding their models pending a solution. Nothing more.

has there been a reported case of a caused crash, loss of control, or any manifested safety issue from the described problem?
not that i know of, just a complete loss of model memory or model setups if you will, that's the worst i've heard of so far, most just get a TX reboot.

from what i understand about it is that it will not happen when being held by the pilot but can happen if powered up and the pilot sets the TX down for what ever reason and then picks the TX back up that's when it does happen to some people, i've never had it happen to me but it sure would suck to lose my TX setup or setups.......

We know of no events where the static electricity caused reboot actually changed any data. We've only seen the transmitter reboot.

There have been zero reports of this happening while the transmitter is being held or while the system was controlling a model in flight. The static-caused reboot has only happened when the transmitter was on, sitting alone, and then touched by someone who had a static charge built up.

Thanks Bill. I figured that was the real world reality of the situation.
