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".

If it's meaningless and irritating don't read it!!!! It was only stated a a general statement whch seems to be applied by many here.

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

How can you possibly justify a statement like this? If it is not appropriate for the purpose required then it is useless and cannot possibly be the best. To be the best it must be appropriate for the purpose.
