I am not aware of any "on-water" failure of the fly by wire. Certainly, they could be out there without me knowing about it but this is THT and I would have thought if that had happened, it would have been publicized here. My point is that I don't see it as a reliability risk and the upside is huge. Like you, just my opinion.
