+1

Yes, and it's a nightmare. Especially on a DX6I. When I got my DX8 I set them up on there, and it was much easier, but still not particularly simple to do. In my opinion, it is worth the struggle...

Yes, It is quite hard to keep orientation, especially at dusk, with the grey air force scheme. I really should paint mine up like that.
