i have some question is there possibility  to add Maestro to the 6600M ?
 i cant see the transceiver  will have compatible leg or angel on the front ?
why flex not doing it flexible what i mean you can remove the front with cable or non cable to your 
operation table and can plug it back if you like one unit ?
but for sure i cant see any leg on the front that cant tilt the radio in any position

    Since the 6600M hooks to your network, it should work with a Maestro connected to the network. But, if you don't want a radio with an intergrated panel, get a 6600 non M model and use it with a Maestro like you would with a 6300, 6400, 6500 or 6700. The M model radios are supposed to have feet or a bail.of some sort on the front underside of the radio to allow tilting the front of the radio upwards for a better viewing angle.

    hi James 
    and thank you very much for the info  yes for sure i know there is 2 model 
    why ? you can just add may be the clip on clip off and insert the front panel with plastic cover 
    what i was thinking is if you like to add the Maestro you buy 6600m and for sure you can clip on or off  
    the unit but okay i see the point okay vy 73

    The front of the 6600M is not a Maestro, but it shares the same controls. In order for the front panel to be removed it would need to communicate with the radio some how. this would be a completely different product then what is being offered.

    All FLEX-6000M models will work in "native" mode where you use the front panel controls.  Or you can use a GUI clients (SmartSDR for Windows, SmartSDR for iOS or Maestro) to control the radio.

    All FLEX-6000M models have front feet flip extenders to provide an upwards tilt for better viewing of the front panel.

    All FLEX-6000M models are fixed configuration.  If you need a portable control surface,m you can use the Maestro.
