Yes, that is going to be worked on some time after we get caught up with the FT-6. Things are still kind of crazy. Being done with the Beta version of the manual has taken a bit of pressure off me though. Now I'm just collecting feedback and preparing for the next update. It will be nice to not be working 7 days a week.
We have already started bringing the FT-5 R2 into line with the FT-6 by removing the top bearings on the lead screws which had a tendency to cause binding for some.
We really want to bring the innovations from the FT-6 to the FT-5 as there are no plans to remove it from the product lineup.
