Question.. Rotor is on order along with the FT-897D I know I should mount
the rotor in a tower with a thrust plate I think its called.  But don't have
one .
I only have a 2 meter and 440mhz yagi to mount ooon it .. 
Will that be a problem .. Or is it mostly when its loaded Up to near the
max? or one of those faster wear and tear Things no matter what?  Oh .. And
3rd party controllers to interface to the computer.??
Are they all so darn expensive?
