I find the Maestro Display much easier to use than the Smartsdr on my PC for the Flex 6300.
Anyway to emulate the Maestro display on my PC ?

Well, you could get a Flex Control to provide you with a 'knob' for tuning, etc.  (You can configure the buttons on the flex control to do other stuff as well)... Other than that I think most of the controls would work the same as a Maestro if you used a touch screen/tablet.

The big advantage for me is that SmartSDR scales quite nicely to a 27in landscape display.  Now, if I could get that in a Touchscreen, i'd be in heaven....

I don't know why you'd want to emulate the Maestro.  There are several functions that are either buried in the Maestro menus or are actually non-existent (tracking notch filters, etc) on the Maestro but are easily accessible on a laptop with SmartSDR.  

If you really need knobs, I also recommend trying a Flex Control.

 I find the Maestro is so much easier too use than the PC Flex Software.
