I made no comment on Brand and dissagree that a blanket statement "affordable and completes the task at hand" is a measure of absolute "best" (although I agree that could be a measure of "best" for a given purpose).

What I meant by "best", was a simple technical specification of performance, regardless of appropriateness for purpose required.

It would be helpfull in discussions generally, to discuss the price/ performance of gear relative to requirements, not absolute statements like "the only good RC is made by Star Instruments or RCOS, The only good cameras are the most expensive", this is meaningless and irritating.

Generally and inevitably with hi tech gear, the highest specification and reliability demands the highest price. Its the way of things, if a better thing is cheaper, the more expensive same thing dies. This has NOTHING to do with "best price for purpose".
