Hi Everyone,

Just to give you an update. We did make a software improvement this week
that I want to ensure gets fully tested. I want to work it through it's
paces on the contest this weekend. And judge on Monday AM whether the V3
firmware is ready for prime time or not.
Note: We won't ship any RX366's until we know the firmware is solid.

Best Regards,
John Henry
