Looks like Flex has posted a demo video on youtube of the Maestro in action.  Looks great!

I really like the pinch-to-zoom on the touchscreen.

The video, tops but was the "music" necessary?

is there anything you don't complain about ? You didn't order, didn't want one, so why bother commenting?

Thanks for the Flex team taking the time, I appreciate it, keen to see the production ready real deal :) Ordered already and def keen to use it :)

Just make sure the buttons have a solid feel to them. Been too many times I go into a high end audio shop to see the high end gear and the controls feel sloppy and use cheap plastic.

Sorry Simon, but Burt is right on the mark about the tiresome music on an otherwise excellent video.

I don't complain about:
1. Flex customer service
2. Tim being so helpful

3. The vast intellect of the contributors here.
4. The quality of Flex gear
5. The updates on software

Do I have to order to have an opinion? The device looks great but I have no use for it

Howard, do I mock your name?

Some of my videos have music but they don't interfere with any other audio. Jay, if I use the, "volume control" I will miss the audio from the rig.

Interesting...but...am I the only guy who thinks the knobs and buttons should be on the left side?  I need my right hand for sending cw with my paddles, pencil, scratch pad, etc..

Impressive device.  Kudos to FRS, K9CT and 4o3a for a successful collaboration. 

Wondering of I should increase my order for a Maestro for each 6x00 here?  Hmm....

    Looking forward to a demo that features a transmit scenario with a headset, CWX, and/or
keyer.

Are the shafts metal or plastic? I agree with Barry, it may have survivability issues.

Thanks for your feedback everyone.  I will pass this on the the multimedia production department for their consideration.

I like it very much! music included :)
I hope it can embed third party applications like a logger for contest operations.
I think, also, some kind of plastic ar better than some kind of metal and our cars are a good example.
Probably you can argue about vfo knob's inertia, but not so much, as you can go up and down the band with just one finger.

Thumb up for me
