    Thanx for all the replies to my request. I had thought it was on this thread that I had read that theRcExl were cheap knockoffs that were not reliable. So, I will proceed with using them. Thanx !!

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

    A few users have advised of a problem when connecting to the HPP-22 Station, answered elsewhere as:
    "Have updated a number of Aurora, Eclipse 7 Pro & Optic 6 Sport at several locations today,
    a couple did take some time for HPP-22 to connect.
    No doubt for same reasons as in the past, there will be delays getting a connection
    over next few days. This as the news has gone worldwide and there are now three
    transmitters being updated,
    not just the Aurora 9.

    15 minutes later: Attached HPP-22 to upload model data from A9 to PC
    and received attached warning that HPP-22 was not connecting to the station.
    Hit "OK" and proceeded to transfer Data then email to requestee.
    Guess there is an overload at Korea end and users need to exercise patience
    until the next schedule as in link provided above, extract:
    "Try again later, as posted just a few posts beforehand:
    1. Korean ISP will sometimes show "data overload" - normalisation at midnight,
    Seoul Kr time = aprox another 10.5 hours. World Clock – Time Zones


    i.e. if at first no connection, please be patient and try again later.

    Should not have any noticable impact unless as with all 2.4Ghz systems, antenna isinstalled to close toengine,
    metal parts or high current batteries, C/F reinforcing, metal pushrods etc.

    Please be guided by information and pictures under:

    Say A.T., can you give me guidance toward setting up the warning for low batteries using the Telemetry pack on my A9.  When i think I have set a number at 5.5 or so, my talking module still says low battery.

    Hi
    I think I can help here .

    You must program the radio , " AND " the voice box separately .
    But I could be wrong [8D]

    Aurora 9 transmitter... Intermittent failure to power up.

    I was at a contest yesterday and after landing a plane I powered down the rx and tx. When I went to power up in the pits to do a check before the next race the tx would not power up... No light, no screen. This is the 3rdtime this has occurred over the last year. The first time several months ago, the second time in the workshop a few days ago and this time at a contest. The Tx subsequently started up as it has before after a couple of minutes leaving it alone.

    Now I know I need to send it in, but the last time I sent in receivers it took a few weeks to get them back (firmware update). So I need to get another tx while it is in the shop. I am not keen on buying another Aurora 9. But I want a spare tx in the meantime during the servicing. Can I substitute with a cheaper tx.

    wkevinm
    I have the same problem from time to time. Once a month or every two months. I just take the battery out of the TX and put it back in. Seems to start every time after that.

    I'm guessing that since the on off switch also triggers the processor to save data and other stuff, it may be getting stuck at some point during the process and only once power is comepletely removed is the process terminated.

    Aurora 9 - Off/On Switch problem or Screen does not Display?
    A9 Auto Saves (flash) each session's programming & trim changes on shutdown.
    Allow time to complete task before switching on again.
    extrct:
    ""Screen Lights Up but No Display
    "James- It's an anomaly that happens on occasion when the CPU doesn't boot but the screen is powered.
    Turn it off and on again and 99.9% of the time it boots up fine.
    I've never seen this turn off in flight or cause an issue.
    The most important factor is that the RX be up to date with the latest V2.02 firmware.
    If the radio was purchased recently and has firmware V1.08(1) in the transmitter then most likely it is.
    I would suggest he call us so we can troubleshoot further. - Mike."

    AT,

    I have V2.02 in all of.my rx's and V1.08 in my A9. Everything seems to work as it should. I fly gas predominantly with some glow. No electrics. Is there any reason or benifit to upgrading to 1.09 in my case? Other than battery, I don't use telemetry.

    Thanks for all the advice you post.

    HI, I had this happen to me just last weekend. It definitely got my attention as I assumed I left the transmitter on and killed the battery. After flipping the switch a few more times, the transmitter turned on and I flew with it 3 times. Looper

    Spectra module?
    With V3.01 in module and given V2.02 in transceivers
    (Miima receivershave their latest firmware and work only with Spectra V3.01 and above)
    you do not need to update the Aurora to V1.09
    . Aurora 9 - Firmware Updates V1.09. 20Sep12 - Advanced sensor station telemetry items added & timer issue fixed. .

    With Aurora 9 left on V1.08, your timers counting up or down may be out several seconds over 5 minutes
    and you are unable to use the HTS_Advance or any of the more recent telemetry add-ons.
    Telemetry - Instruction Sheets & User Guide with pictures plus Enhancements Under Development.

    Personally, all my own gear is kept upto date with the latest firmware to ensure any other little tweaks
    which maynot beincluded in announcements are also loaded. - similar to keeping my PC security up to date.
    . Hitec HPP-22 2.4GHz Programmer - Manual, FAQ - How to Install & Use
    ..(includes Screenshots & Current Firmware Versions for all related Units).

    However, when updating any unit, one instruction in manual and repeated with each update, which must not be overlooked:
    "After Update:
    2. Check all Model Functions.
    Aurora 9 programming is so flexible that no firmware designer could ever envisage and take into account
    all the possible user settings and ensure that absolutely none will be effected during an upgrade and still get
    the updates out in a timely cost effective manner. (especially free upgrades..)
    Monitor screen assists check of each model.
    Another reason recheck all functions each model is essential after an upgrade

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

    Thanks Alan,

    I do have the 3.01 in the module and the 2.02 on all my rx's. However, as you have stated, I think I will go ahead and update the Tx although I may wait a few more weeks until my flying season at this location is essentially over. Fairly cold here the last week or so but, we still have a warm weekends sneak in on us occassionally. By the end of Dec. or the first of Jan. it will be strictly building season for me as I don't do the cold very well.

    Again thank you,
    Bill

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



    Today I was finishing a new model and started to get the servos programmed and the receiver set up. I copied an existing model of similar airplane to a new model in memory position 10. I was allowed to create position 10, renamed it new a unique name and then when I tried to select it... nothing. I selected some other models, no problem, went back to position 10, but it will not select, nor will it allow me to delete it. I then copied and built models in positions 11 and 12 but agian I cannot select them, but I can delete these models.
    so what I have now is

    Model memory positions 1 through 9 are OK, I can select, have the option to delete.
    Model memory position 10 I cannot select and I cannot delete
    Model memory position 11 and 12 cannot be selected but can be deleted.

    Has anyone faced this before, any ideas?
