Hello new Flex owner and just got cat working between pc and Expert.  Using SmartSDR Cat to connect to Expert on a serial port.  Works fine except I notice that I can not adjust RF power levels when in operate mode.  Have to switch to stby.  I have max power set to 20 watts in the radio setup.  Seems it is using that as the value when in operate.   Assuming it has to be cockpit error.

You need to use ddutil program which will give you full control of expert amp when running smartsdr..will autoset power level and band switch. check it out here.

Paul,  thanks for your advice.  I got it working with both ddutil and SmartSDR Cat now.   Had to change Expert to Kenwood and now she works like a champ.   thanks again.
