The FD-502 has a 28 pin eprom, all other Tandy controllers will need the
adapter from Cloud9.
The Cloud9 adapter also has a switch, so that you can actually burn both the
Tandy rom and the Dragon SuperDos rom on a 27c128 chip, and use the same
controller either with a Coco or a Dragon.

Indeed, I'm successfully using a Tano Dragon with FD502 controller and the
special SuperDos Rom which was created by Phill.
This configuration seems 100% compatible with all DragonDos software.
Thanks to Boisy's help, I also have NitrOS9 L1 running on it.
If you need the NitrOS9 boot disk for the Dragon with Tandy controller drop
me an email.
