NEW FIRMWARE: V1.8.4.18 RELEASED!

On Demonstration live in our Showroom! 


Orchestrating Radio any way, any where...

Whether you are the most serious contest operator, DX chaser, rag chewer, or you just love to "play radio," Maestro is fun and easy to operate. Maestro harmoniously combines a high definition 8 inch touch display in concert with ergonomically designed controls to enhance ease of use and maximize workflow efficiency in virtually any SmartSDR™ application.

We interviewed some of the world's top contest/DX operators to understand their demanding operating style and personal goals. Over and over we heard that the most frequently used controls should be intuitive, single function, require minimal hand motion and be comfortable to use over long periods. The message was "keep it simple." Maestro orchestrates control function, placement and ergonomics for maximum tempo in the most important configurations including DX, split, SO2R, Run, S&P, and Multi operation.

Maestro places the most frequently used radio controls directly at your fingertips.  Controls are labeled for intuitive operation and designed to minimize hand motion for the most common operations.  Occasionally used controls are easily accessible on the large touch screen display bypassing the complexity of multi-function buttons and multi-level menus found on most transceivers.

FlexRadio continues to set the standard for high resolution, real time spectral display in amateur radio transceivers with Maestro, extending that same “HD visual radio” capability from the PC based SmartSDR for Windows™ to the 8 inch touch screen format. Like modern phones and tablets, capacitive touch control is provided on the large LCD display for intuitive pan, zoom, tune, and menu operation.


Ever wish you could monitor the bands or work DX from the comfort of your living room or out on the patio?  Its sleek, lightweight design makes it easy to carry, pack or go mobile.  Off the shelf VESA and VESA to RAM® adapters provide a wealth of mounting options.  An optional battery pack with WiFi connectivity even lets you operate completely untethered.  Just connect Maestro using WiFi, through your local area network (LAN) or directly to any FLEX-6300, FLEX-6500 or FLEX-6700 transceiver and you are ready to operate.

Just setup the Flex Maestro - the best and easiest setup in a lifetime! Auto update of software, linked to wifi and immediate signals! This really is a professional piece of development and worth the wait. Beautiful display, good audio.........I could go on....and on! Ian Shepherd - G4EVK

FlexRadio Maestro Control Console for the FLEX-6000 - Maestro -a work of pure genius! 
I bought this to go with my Flex 6300 - one word describes it: awesome! Effortless setup with a fantastic display. Function menus easy to use and understand and in my opinion is a must have for any Flex 6000 series owner. It's simply brilliant. The display is beautiful and compliments the Flex radio better than I ever thought possible. If you want to have the traditional "box of tricks" on the bench in front of you while still enjoying the SDR radio funtionality this is simply a must have. Yes they are pricey, but in my opinion, worth every single penny. A triumph for Flex once again. Thanks Gary and team at ML&S for the outstanding service once again - I'll be baaaaaack! 5 out of 5!

Many thanks to Paul and the staff at ML&S for the super fast delivery of the new FlexRadio Maestro. Put my order in on Monday evening at 4:00pm and it arrived next day by 10:20am. Unboxed it, installed the battery, switched on, connected to WiFi, software upgrade, connect to my Flex 6500 and up and running in ten minutes, just like Gary's video on the website. Now I can sit anywhere in the house and work DX. Looking forward to FlexRadio V2.0 software update for full remote access. This is a game changer in radio. Ray de G0VLF
