Combining Maestro with full remote operation allowing rotor control, antenna change etc
Hi all Flex aficionados. As a seasoned Flex and Maestro user I enjoy the flexibility that Maestro gives, allowing me to operate my station from 1000 miles away from home. In the bad old days of steam radios I used a VPN to access my home computer to give me an easy way to operate my rotor, to actually know where it was heading at any time, to use my logging program and a host of other functions.
So far as I can tell, there is no standalone system that I can use with Maestro to continue with these functions. I band change using the data output from my Flex 6500 to my linear which also automatically changes antennas but I am still looking for the easiest way to operate my Alfaspid rotor and KNOW that it has turned.
Operating remote 100 miles from the nearest City, I have latency that runs as high as 500ms, which I have not been able to overcome, which adds another complication to the problem .
I would be interested in feedback from those who have solved this problem.
