  • Updated 1 year ago
Loaded V2.2.8 this week Monday 5/21 and all worked as it should. I remote from different location at my Shop/Office (same ISP but different accounts). Tried using Maestro today but cannot get it to work. I can remote into my home PC and can start up  SmartSDR and all works fine. When I get to the login screen on the Maestro I can disconnect the PC at home via SmartLink and select my Flex-6500. I can select the FW version but I get the following

Maestro can not load hardware

I get the following error

This means one of two things; either charge your battery or Maestro needs a better internet signal. Too many wifi signals, weak wifi connection.

Yup, dying battery @ <1%, good call. That is what I get for leaving the wall power supply at home

My Polanfo 12000 mAh is my favorite battery so far (run time, price, it fits ) The new Polanfo is 20,000mAh (even better specs) but it is $3x ha, ha.

What are the physical dimensions of the new Palano power bank? Will it actually fit inside the Maestro? Info not available on Amazon listing. Have two units now that work fine but won't fit inside the cavity without forcing it, something I won't do. Someone else asked Flex if they offered a replacement cover so the could drill a suitable size hole in it to pass a USB extension through it but never did see a Flex response.

Just got to do your homework then by searching on Amazon. Most items have product information & product dimension. See the article below for info
