Default The point with programmable servo?

Just wondering, what's the point with programmable servos?

With the KO ones, the following parameters can be programmed: speed, punch, deadband, damping, protection timer, and servo travel.

Travel, speed, punch, deadband (and maybe dampning?) can usually be programmed with computerized TX's.

Protection timer (and maybe dampning) is the only things left. As far as I can see, it's not worth the money if you only race EP cars. Have I overlooked something or is it mainly marketing blah blah blah?

Lots of planes use more than one servo for the same function.

This would allow you to match them closer.

Default for planes

there for airplanes because since digitals are so precise the servos will fight each other on a plane causing it to fly earatically

Don't need to be precise here, most of us dial out the steering anyway, and turn to transmitter knob all the way also. Its just the speed of the servo, you can't get that with an regular servo.
