    I just went there and it allowed me to add it to my shopping cart. Of course it was Saturday when I talked to him. You might call him.

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

    I'm planning to buy A9 2.4 with 7ChRx in a month or two. Had been following this thread on how A9 compares to Futaba 8fg. A9 will be my upgrade from Futaba 4Ch FM Skysport :-) . Can anyone tell me what's the package dimensions (size of the packaged box as it's packed). Also why is so much price difference between Tower and TBM? I'm planning to get it from TBM since it's listed at lower price there.

    Thanks.

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

    I have some bad news from Brandon Lugo. Seems like Hitec USA's GM won't give foreign buyers the free rx if we are outside their normal distribution area. Even if we pay for the postage.

    I didn't see any such restriction printed on their advertising did you? Did anyone see any such thing in their ads in FlyRC, MAN RCSF etc?

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

    Is anyone going to offer to claim the rx for us for a small fee, plus the postage, of course.

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

    We've shipped numerous Aurora 9's w/7Ch RX's and the 9ch versions started shipping this week with the rest headed out the door early next week. A substantial amount of Aurora's will be in shops shortly.

    The telemetry items are not due until Feb/March. The price for the full system that includes: Sensor station, (4) temp sensors, (2) RPM, fuel, GPS, and HPP-22 PC interface is around $250. Other packages will also be available as well as individual components.

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

    how big is this radio - how chunky? does it feel size-wise similar to a Futaba 7C... with a slightly large feel to it?

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




    ORIGINAL: inverted flyer how big is this radio - how chunky? does it feel size-wise similar to a Futaba 7C... with a slightly large feel to it?
    Very comfortable with the molded rubber grips providing a positive feelwithout neckstrap nor tray. -some user feedback =
    Aurora weight comparison-"griesel"
    "My Hitec Aurora 9 weighs 923.9 grams = 32.6 oz. = 2lb 0.6 oz
    . My Spektrum DX7 weighs 770.6 grams = 27.2 oz = 1lb 11.2oz
    . My JR 7202 weighs 829 grams = 29.2 oz = 1lb 13.2 oz
    The Aurora 9 is heavier than the 7 track units. "

    Here are my answers - Don
    1. Do you think the Aurora looks or feels cheap?
    No, but my DX7 sure did that is why I got rid of it. I am pleased with the A9 look and feel I have a Futaba 9C and I like the heavier weight of a transmitter and that is why I like the A9. I do not like the red anodizing on the sticks though.
    2. Does the external antenna bother you? If yes, to what degree?
    Not at all, considering I had a Spektrum module in my Futaba 9C. That was a hideous module and connector setup. I was surprised to find the A9 module was not built in but to me it is not a big deal as it is much more concealed and I can lay the transmitter down without worrying that the coax connector is hitting the table.
    3. If a module with the antenna hard mounted to it were available, would you prefer to have it over the wired version?
    I barely notice it the way it is now so makes no real difference.

    Dimensions are nearly similar to the Spektrum DX 7:

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

    I am mostly sold on this radio, I just need to come up with the money. One question, I have heard that the out of range warning does not work for the receiver voltage, is that a hardware issue or is it a software issue? Am I wrong about the out of range issue?

    Thanks

    As per Aurora A9 Undocumented Features - Mixes, Setups, Tips, (includes Spectra Pro and Optima RX features) . {frequently updated}

    "Optima Basic Telemetry Includes Battery Voltage Level but not "Range Out warning". "
    receiver voltage does work. -
    Still await further clarification as to when the range Out Warning will be available, was lost in translation.

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

    I also concur the balance thing isn't a issue with me, I rarely use a neck-strap.
    A few extra ounces of weight may actually make the radio feel more stable in your hands.
    If a extra half pound of weight is an issue.......just pick up some slings to hold your arms.
    I think so far the A9 is looking like the radio to get
    The A9 may not be quite equivalent to the 12 and 14 channel systems. But I bet you will see the other brands come out with telemetry and touch screens with a folder style menu system with there next releases.
    Safe Flying

    Help pls!, Box dimensions are important, since a friend of mine will be carrying it for me from US.

    Yes, with the HPP-22 interface. But it goes beyond that... you will be able to save/load individual model memories thus giving you the ability to share them with others simply by loading the file which could be downloaded from the web or e-mailed. FYI: You can also share set ups between radios with the trainer cord as seen here: http://www.youtube.com/user/HitecMul.../0/0WeyfazmKGQ

    Also with the HPP-22 connected to the module and plugged into a laptop you can log and capture the telemetry data, and even view the models flight path in a google earth app. This applies to the module so this capability is not limited to the Aurora only.

    The software is close to being finalized, so it and the HPP-22 will be available very soon.

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

    Mike, I am sold on this radio. I've been a big Futuba fan since I started flying but I have to spend $600+ to get one with sliders and the other goodies I like. I got one question, can I use the Futuba 6EX 2.4 with this radio for training?

    Too bad I already got my Christmas present in August lol, gonna have to wait until after the new year now.
