With little information, there is no way for me to say for sure, but
my guess is, yes, you will experience issues uploading to an
unsupported radio.

When I add support for a new radio, I analyze the data stream
bit-for-bit to make sure I understand everything that is being
transferred. Then I write the Chirp driver so that what it sends to
the radio is indistinguishable from what is sent by the manufacturer's
software or a clone from another radio.

It doesn't sound like you have done any analysis of the data from the
FT-270, so writing to it would be just a guess, risky business.
