Welcome to the list Michael,

be radio controlled is safety. As long as one has to babysit it (steer it)
one should be able to avoid hitting obstacles - I am thinking about adding
an additional radio "kill button" for added safety.

Several members are taking the same approach. I believe one member was also
mounting a camera and transmitter to his mower so he didn't need to follow
it when it went out of sight.
