Thanks for the videos Mike.

As a software engineer, I have one quick comment: the back button (the door in the upper right) is great and consistent across screens. However, sometimes it also acts to confirm a value, like a switch setting, which is a bit confusing. I think either of these suggestions would be clearer in those cases:

1. Just tapping a switch should cause it to blink for one second to confirm it was pressed, then return to the screen you came from. This saves an extra press.


2. After pressing a switch to highlight it, press a separate SET button to confirm. Pressing the door button would cancel this selection, reverting to the previous value.

Personally I prefer #1 as it's faster.

Also, kudos on being able to change both endpoints, both dual rates, etc. at the same time. It drives me nuts that I have to set these parameters redundantly on my Futaba 12FG. This is such a good feature that I suggest highlighting both values by default, since most people use symmetrical dual rates.
