RE: Aurora 9
Geoff, I would suggest that you read through the manual first especially chapters 5 (Calibration), 10.2 (Model Functions) and 13.1 (Advanced Channels Setup). The easiest way to setup and assign your switches is by using "Calibrate and Configure". You could also use "Assign Model Functions" and this will only let you assign switches for the functions available for the particular model. As you get more experienced, you can assign all channels using "Advanced Channels Setup".
To get dual/triple rates for any control surface, put the rate switch to high rate, and calibrate the stick at high rate.
