Title: [Poll] Flarm Stealth Mode

I had a nice 3 way chat this morning with Richard Kellerman and Daniel Hoffmann, who is the general manager at Flarm.

2km and 300m is visual range.  Basically what this does is make powerflarm a collision avoidance tool, period.  It takes electronic leeching right out of the game. 

I'm interested in discovering if our customers have strong feelings about this.  Would you be inclined to use stealth mode in comps?
