I have one by default as it looks to be a rebadged TYT MD-380.

That was my thoughts also, does that mean the same software will work with the programming?

Honest answer, I don't know, best guess, probably, 380/RT3s are as low as £79 delivered now, that will drop when Bumfeng get their act together, I currently have two UHF versions and am holding off getting a VHF until the tier2 dualbanders hit the market.
I would still like to go upmarket and invest in Motorola etc, but I've used their sets, and although the build and feel are vastly superior, I didn't notice an improvement in audio or signal quality over the Chinese cheapies.
