New Guy Questions
All I want to do initially is just set up a normal rig, maybe some digital stuff but don't have much desire to do any remote control stuff, maybe later on.

So basically treat it like any new radio. I suggest connecting the antenna to the “RX IN” port and a dummy load to antenna 1. This allows playing with the controls with little danger of hurting anything. Later, move the dummy load to ant 2, and the antenna to antenna 1.1

Welcome to the world of Flex. Flex has an extensive on line library of manuals and user guides. Below please find links to down load some of these documents which will give you a head start of before the radio arrives. After muliple years of being a Flex owner I'm still learning.
Also go to You Tube and search for "FLEX", there are some very helpful step by step videos there showing set up for FT-8, N1MM, FLDIGI, and MMTTY to name a few.
