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.
