I own several FMA M5's and have had no problems with them whatsoever. I've flown them in 100+ degree F temperatures and slightly below freezing (it doesn't get below freezing often in Austin, TX, but it does happen occasionally, and I don't let that stop me from flying.)
I'm guessing you're not going to get a balanced answer to your question. It seems to have turned into a religious war :)
Personally, I've had nothing but good experiences with my M5s and extreme5s, but I don't have any Berg receivers to compare to them yet. (But I may get one, just to try it out.) I've never had to deal with FMA support, so I don't know how they are (and that's the way I like it.)
Also, don't forget get that both FMA and Berg offer several different receivers. You might as well look at both's full lines before making a decision.
