    RE: New Hitec Aurora 9-Channel 2.4Ghz Radio System

    The first thing to do is set up your flight conditions which are typically Idle up-1, Idle up-2, and hold in that order. Higher numbers have higher priority so once you activate hold it will override the idle up settings. Typically for hold you program this in the throttle curve with the flight condition activated. In order to have different settings per the condition you should change the "C" to an "S" by tapping on it. This will then make this setting "separate" for this mix. If you want to have the same setting with multiple flight condition then leave it "C" (combined.) If you get the HPP-22 interface you will be able to upload other peoples set ups which sometimes is a big help.

    There's a really good resource for info here: http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=223607 including videos of setting up failsafe with more to come shortly.

    Mike,

    I don't know if this has been asked or if its possible but for people running gas engines, can you just plug in a splitter to the existing pick up? I know several brands use there own wiring but most use RCExl and have a standard pick up. It would be very nice if you could tap into this with out adding a second pick up.

    RE: New Hitec Aurora 9-Channel 2.4Ghz Radio System

    Mike i have a question about the Gyro menu. What i want to know is what is the true gain for each step in gain in the gyro menu? We start out at 50% does that relate to 0% going to the gyro.

    I am using the Gy 401 and would like to know for each step or percent that i increase in the transmitterwhat is the gyro recieving.

    On the 9303 you can caculate true gain by taking the gyro value entered in the transmitter subtracting 50 then multiply that by 1.44 and that equals true gain(according to Finless bob).

    So how does the Aurora work in this area?

    I dont want to over drive my rudder servo.

    AJ- You should be able to use the existing magnet and mount the RPM sensor on the other side but it may depend on the positioning. We'll have to do more research on this.

    Anything above 50 is positive or HH mode and anything below 50 is negative or rate mode. Therefor 50% is 100% HH gain.

    let me see if i get this right below 50% is rate moide and 50% and up is HH mode??? If that statement is true then how can 50% be 100% gain to the gyro. It seems that 50% would be 0 gain at the gyro and then as you increase the percentage the gain would increase by some value that is what i was wanting to know when i increase the the percentage how much is gain being changed at the gyro? Am i missing something here? i am new to helis but something doesn't sound right.

    RE: New Hitec Aurora 9-Channel 2.4Ghz Radio System

    mike,

    I have already done that in order of Normal, Idle 1, Idle 2 (E) and Hold. (G). Idle functions are working fine. Only when i switch to Hold and then turn it back to normal, the servo, instead of reversing from the hold position towards UP, would go to shut down position first and then return to throtle stick position ?? this happens even if the throtle stick is on High side !!!!!

    i will upload a video today evening, so you all can review the same and find a solution.

    I have all the 3 position -( Normal, 1 and 2 )to have equal or more throtle than Hold position.

    I have ordered HPP-22 and some accessories, which will come to me in October - long to wait !!!

    Otherwise programming with A9 is fun and easy.

    One more thing i dont like about the 6/7 ch Rx is combined Battery and Channel slot. !! A big NO NO NO !!!  All Heli guys would agree, as Heli uses exactly 6 channels and plugging a Battery is NEED of "Y" harness. I dont like wire mess !!!

    With all do respect........if you need 6 channels and you don't want to use a Y connector then the minimum you need to buy is a 7 channel.
    As you probably know on many receivers you lose one channel to the battery.
    If possible I buy a receiver with at least one channel more than I think I will need.
    Safe Flying

    Well I finally flew my Aurora 9 in a pattern contest, and it worked well enough to get me 2nd place. In fact it worked better than I did. Only have 10 or 12 flights on it so far, and still not quite used to it compared to my old radio which I flew for almost six years. Another dozen flights or so and I should be as comfortable with it as my old radio. Don't get me wrong the A9 is better than my old radio in many ways. It's just me becoming acclimated. The A9 is quicker, so my timing is a little off. But it works great and is so user friendly. I like it a lot. I'm glad I purchased it.
    Just out of curiosity, what was your old radio?


    ORIGINAL: JIMF14D

    So I want to droop my ailerons slightly as a switch function. Do I have to use the airbrake to ail mix thing? It seems that when I do it that way I use an extra channel on my Channel Optima 6 channel Rx. But I wanted to use channels 4 and 6 for separate rudder and nose wheel servos mixed from rudder.

    Ideas?
    Thanks,
    Jim D


    You could do this a couple of way...CAMBMIX with a two position switch (default is left slider) or the AIRBRAKE mix and then assign a two position switch to activate it. This is probably more preferred and you can use the speed setting to have it come in slowly. Dont get the airbrake channel assignment confused with the function. Airbrake channel is what I would call a spoiler, and airbrake mix is what we called LAND mode in radios past like the Eclipse/Optic.

    Right On! Will be worn with pride. Since April 160+ flights in 5 planes with zero radio problems or issues. The A9 has exceeded my expectations wildly, and allowed me to become a better pilot by virtue of not having any doubts about whether the airplane will do what I tell it to. The style of programming allows me to experiment with different setups easily as I gain more understanding of what I want a plane to do.

    Thanks HiTec!

    Hitec thong?  That sure would save the Mrs. a lot of money at Victoria Secrets to peek my interest.  Only if it comes with telemetry to get the feedback...

    Seriously, looking forward to the T-shirt deal.  Shipping, cost, whatever - I'd wear one.
