Only modules designed for the Aurora will work in the Aurora = "Spectra Pro",
1. Pinouts in a different location to prevent insertion of non Spectra Pro Modules.
2. Voltage is very different and will not provide sufficient power to Futaba or the older Hitec modules.
3. The Aurora Pro PPM 72Mhz module frequency is controlled within the TX system, not the module.
