Mike, where the Aurora 9 is made country of origin?
what kind of charging jack it has is it like futaba?
i'm considering the Aurora 9, i really dont like how the 6EX feels nor the price of the 10CAG Rx's.

Thanks
Alex

The Aurora is built in Korea.

Charge jack is unique as the system uses only 7.2/7.4v to power it.

so, one would have to surmise that with your mention of 7.4V power, that it would be ok to use a 2-cell LiPo pack with it, right?

Correct... 2S Lipo capable w/ adjustable cut off for protection.

FYI: Here's a shot of the new RX battery voltage indication built in.

is the "5.5" in the battery symbol the cutoff voltage, and the 7.1 the measured voltage?

5.5 was the real time RX battery voltage (4 cell) and 7.1 was the current TX battery voltage.

Mike Mayberry said that the Aurora 9 would be available in late August. See message #99 in this thread.

As a note, I saw an advertisement in one RC flying magazine that said there would be a coupon in the Aurora boxes for a free 7 channel receiver - limited time offer.

I hope it is late August, I saw on one site that said Late Sept. for the unit with a 9ch and servos. Late Aug for 7ch rx
I can still wait though.

For the first time we have a specific date of August 14th for their arrival in our USA facility. They will then go through a 100% QC (as with all new products) and then will ship to the dealer/distributors, so late August is accurate.

Mike.

Note we are offering a coupon with the Aurora for an additional 7CH RX for free, and I was recently told the coupon will also offer the option for another additional 7CH RX for $39.99.

So... for $469.98 you can get an Aurora 9 with (3) 7Ch receivers!

Mike.

That sounds like a great deal. If they will ever hit the market.

Hey Mike,

That is a really good deal - especially for me since I don't really need 7 channels at the moment (6 is the max I have now).

Hope the shipping isn't too much.

Is it possible to get rid of the cable in the back and maybe to buy an antenna without that cable?
What do I need that additional module for if not for 72 MHz receivers?

Thanks
Alex
