Agreed John... I started in around release 14 and additions / improvements and bug fixes have made a lot of progress.
The update on Win10 went smooth, no issues.

nice update. DAX via SmartLink runs fine. It came out just right in time before the CQWW RTTY contest. It makes now the unnecessary digital to analog to digital transforming of the audio signal during remote operation obsolete.

Maestro sidetone issue is gone, I could not reproduce it anymore.
Flex Radio Team, thump up and keeps it up...

Smartlink DAX is awesome for remote operation, worked perfect CQWW RTTY . Bands poor at my site but Flex works.
Thanks Team FLEX.
