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.

OR

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.

Cheers,
Daniel
