I know generally that's the way that aircrafts are evolving, but I hate having a computer between me and the helicopter controls. I've seen R-K glass cockpits literally melt and malfunction in 45 deg heat, seen computers shutdown engines due to erroneous feedback, seen multi million dollar twins unable to start due to one crappy transistor on a circuit board, etc. Lots to be said about steam gauges, push/pull cables/rods etc... but I am old (fashioned)...
