I agree, but to help others evaluate the difference, keep in mind that "range" is not just a matter of feet (or meters) between bikes. I have the SMH-10 and a pal has the SMH-5. If he and I get separated by an 18-wheel truck or two on the highway, he's gone. In the same situations, my SMH-10 riding pals stay on the air.

I still think my 5 friend made the right choice for him, and the occasional disconnect is not a deal killer, but for some the 5 might not have enough "range."
