I installed the RAS-1 and got everything working yesterday. Even the 450 degree function in SatPC32 is working. Only issue I have(and I was warned about this) is it’s rotational speed is very slow, maybe twice as slow as a G-5500. The cure for this is to run a higher voltage power supply of 24v. Now I have a 28 v supply I use for my 1.2 gig amp and was wondering if it was possible to mod the RAS-1 system to run on 28v. Anyone look into this? I tried contacting  AlfaSpid  about this and never got a reply...
