We all probably have 16-12 gauge wire on there. Just solder it right and pull on the darn wires. Plus I'd rather have Deans and pull on the wires than questionable "Dean type".

What I'm getting at is that because 2.4ghz is better does not mean 72mhz is bad. Yet this seems to be the assumption.

Almost every post in this thread leads to 72mhz is inferior to 2.4ghz. i.e. 2.4 only events/clubs, 72mhz is not a problem unless there are a lot of people, etc.
