What puzzles me with the discussion is that prior to the 60° flight angle the issue was even worse with a much larger "dead zone" for DC/DHC users above and below. But i don't remember such a heated discussion.
There were always "flame wars" about the flight angles and 360° flight. This one is a little more specific.
I also think the problem didn't use to be quite as noticeable. And that might frankly be fault of the 60° angles. It takes longer to reach the edge of space if you have only 45° flight angles.
