[8D]This is for all of you Aurora 9 experts out there, including Hitec. I purchased the A9 in January of this year and am happy with it.
I have five giant scale aircraft that have been fully converted to 2.4 and are equipped with Optima 7 or 9 channel rx's. Yesterday I
successfully performed the updates to the A9 tx and module plus the Optima rx installed on one aircraft.
My question is this:
As stated above, I have an Optima rx in each of my 5 aircraft. I wrap foam rubber around my rx's and firmly anchor them in the
belly of each aircraft. It was a pain to pull out of it's ''cocoon'' the rx that I did the software update to yesterday. I am now going
to download the latest software to a second Optima rx in another aircraft. Can the rx cable that connects to the rx plug-in port be
left there after a download has been completed with the thought that it will be there and already plugged into the rx when Hitec comes
out with another rx software update, thus making the process a bit less cumbersome?? My thought being that I would then purchase
more of these rx cables to accomodate all of the Optima rx's for all of my aircraft. Hopefully, this question makes sense to you all.
Lastly, when I do a software update to my Optima rx's, can I simply use the rx battery pack that is in the aircraft that is plugged into
the battery port on the rx to power up the rx for the software update? Or, do I have to plug in a separate battery pack into the SPC port?
I do not fly electric and never use the SPC port.
Thanks for your responses.
