    RE: Aurora 9Ch, Spectra Pro & Optima - FAQ & Undocumented Features - Mixes, Setups, Tips.


    WOW ___ You can read that stuff starting NOW and finish sometime in the year 2014 or 2015 __
    When you finish reading you will have forgotten all you read for the rest of this year.

    Why would a radio system need that much writing ?

    Give me a system that can control all 3 axis of my model and do it simultaneously and also control my throttle and I will do the rest as a pilot and enjoy flying instead of reading.

    I am not surprised that the A9 has had so much publicity in the forum highlighting its ease of programming and use.
    Then why so much to read ?

    You guys go and read___I am going building and assembling ___and will be at the flying field the first day of suitable weather.

    Alan,
    At what point in low voltage on the A9 would you consider unsafe to fly with the factory batteries before a charge session is needed. Also my Hitec charger's light do not go offor change colorafter a completing a newcharge, is it still charging or does it know when the battery is fully charged?

    1. Alarm s fixed, irrespective of battery chemistry, at 6.9v. I recharge at not les than 7.1v., as in post 130 above and new update being posted within 2 minutes:
    . Aurora 9 - Warning Alarms Battery types, Voltage Level Interpretation & Consumption. CAUTION - Leave Auto Hibernation (was Auto Power Off prior to V1.06) as "Never" when using Lipo Battery. During "Auto Hibernation" (as with laptops) TX Does Not Switch everything Off and batteries will be completely drained if TX switch is not manually moved to the off position in good time. Remove battery and store separately if TX is to be unused for a period.
    . Aurora 9 - Lipo & Field Charging.
    includes Fast Charge Aurora, Eclipse 7, Flash 4&5, Laser, Optic 6, Prism 7 etc.

    2. Aurora 9 - 110/230 Vac charger Charge Plug/adaptor sizes. [Red LED does not change to Green simply dims out but charge continues same rate].

    I would like to buy a counter-balance for the neck strap for my new Aurora radio. Thought I saw a picture of one on this site but I can't find it. Could someone post the part number and where I can buy it.
    Thanks

    I bought my Aurora earlier this Spring. Gave it a password ( version 1.07 ). I do not remember my password. Have tried everything I can think of for an hour. Now what do I do? Thank you in advance.

    cityped,

    Nearly all computer service people have software that will bypass the password and open the device.

    It will not reveal what the password was but will allow to replace it with a new one that you should keep track of for the future.
