1. Video Link ->Aurora 9 - Model Menus Part 4 - Pitch and Throttle Curves (146 Megs)



The gyro menu took 2 videos to cover. It can be as SIMPLE as you want or super complicated... I say KISS (Keep it simple stupid) but I spent the time to cover every aspect of understanding HOW the gyro menu works and what it means to TRUE gain to your gyro. Again if something was not clear.... Let me know!

Has anyone had any problems with the Castle Creations Thunderbird 54, starting up the electric motor even with the stick all the way down and sub trim set to negative max, and trim setting set to down max.

It only seems to happen after you have shut the throttle off, and you are gliding in for a landing.  The wind over the prop is enough to spin the prop, but you can tell that the motor is starting back up.  I am wondering if it is some kind of Back EMF with the motor.
Once you have landed it doesn't do it anymore.  It is not a serious issue just a nagging issue.  It is also not an every flight occurance. 

I love my Aurora and have been using it for almost a year now.  I haven't seen this issue on my old Futaba or my friends Spectrum.  However we are both having it on the Auroras we now have.

WasESCreset and re-calibratedto the new transmitter? the following may assist..
Aurora A9 - Heli EP Ensure ICE ESC/BEC has been updated Or Use Switchmode Regulator.
Aurora A9 - Heli EP Manual set ICE ESC for Throttle - Do Not auto set.
An aftermarket accessory, not a Hitecproduct, thus any queries must be referred to Castle Creations.

Thanks, AT I will check that out.
No it was not recalibrated to the Aurora. That had not been needed on other radios, so Ihave never done that.
No big deal. Love the radio.

Have tried to set up telemetry in 100" gasser with sensor station in cowl as the temp & rpm sensor leads are short, with extension leads back to receiver, however, No Sensors Fitted displays when I try to look at whats happening. Plugged sensor station direct to receiver & no problem. Tried different extensions, etc. all to no avail.
Can someone please tell me if there are specific extension leads for either the sensors or data lead to reach approx. 18" back to the receiver or forward to the sensors.

Optical Sensor, with DIY extension, attached Heli tail pictures x 3
. At the present time, there are no extension leads for the telemetry units.
...."The stock length of the RPM leads are supposed to be longer on the next batch but extensions are needed in many cases although this should help. Temp leads can become inaccurate (I've been told) if they get much longer but I don't know to what extent. There is an extension offered here that would work with the RPM sensors for now.- Mike"....
in case Horizon as usual blocks direct link = SPMA2001 6-inch Ultra Micro Extension "

Data cable wiring is not standard, refer pictures attached above link.

Is there a way to turn of the beeping after every minute when the timer is on? Is there a way to reset the timer (not the integral timer) other than going into the timer menu and pressing reset. I have to wait for the timer to run out or I have to go into the timer menu and choose reset.

At this point in time there is no way to stop the timer beeps, full details:

I have a new Aurora with Spectra Pro 72 MHz module.  My first impression is that half the manual is about using the 2.4 Ghz system.  That aside, I don't see any information about the ID setting module that came with it.  So I don't know if I'm supposed to use it or if its for the 2.4 system.

That aside, I don't see any information about the ID setting module that came with it. So I don't know if I'm supposed to use it or if its for the 2.4 system.
The Aurora manual coversthe Aurora 9 with both 2.4Ghz and the 72 Mhz modules installed.
There are also separate manuals for both modules.
My understanding is that the Aurora was only available with the 2.4GHz module in USA and that the 72MHz Spectra Pro modulewas only an optional extra at this time.
There is no mention of a "IDSetting Module" in the Spectra Pro 72MHz manual, nor have I seen one here.
72 Spectra Pro module manual, as lodged with FCC, under range test:
"Warning!
- Do the range check before each flying session to confirm the
radio system is working properly.
- Do the range check before the engine or motor is started."
amend to read
- Do the range check with the engine or motor running and cycled up <> down or add
"and repeat with Engine/Motor running which will highlight and vibration/electrical problems"

Please start a separate thread with a picture and further detail of that "IDSetting Module".
This partcular thread is intended for answers to questions posted in many various forums.
Please post further questions relating tonew topicsas a newthread at
Hitec/MultiPlex Radios- Ask Hitec Customer Service ,
Thisensures new questions will stand out and be seen and readby all qualified persons.

Later, have this a.m. learnt the Aurora is now available as TX with a 72 Spectra Pro module and Freedom 9 Sythesised RX only.
The "IDSet up Module" is detailed & additional 9S pictorial manual at:
