A total collapse of the Asian cheap labor market by revolution. Arfs become to much of a shot in the pants and most go back to pleasure and accuracy of Kits especially on the high end. (the high end pilots have already gone back to kits but pro built)
Electrics and gas will become the norm and glow and oddity. TX's will be the same size due to the need for manipulation of the controls but probably at 2000004 Ghz For that "locked in feel" you couldn't get with 200007 Ghz.
Models will go back to early 1900 era. Gyro's and autopilot will still suck, why would you want them, they take the fun out of it, you can buy a weatronic RX with 3 gyros and GPS nav right now.
Besides the Asian workers revolt you can almost sense the reversion to kits with those who love the hobby, me included. I may never buy another giant scale arf again. The small ones however......
