Aurora 9 - Firmware Upgrade - V1.08(1)
- as posted all major forums 11 < 13 July 2001

Following will also assist
Aurora 9 - Firmware Updates V1.07 & V1.08(1)..
see also attached extract from addendum to manual (- advised consistently since first update.).

Aurora 9 - Programming Problem? - Parameters must be set in correct order e.g. V_tail.
This applies to all computerised transmitters as in "typical Futaba answer by Bax
"If you change a fundamental part of the model program, such as wing type or tail type, the software assumes a new model.
Therefore, the all settings revert to the default settings. "

See also the attached extract from manual and an earlier post from Eclipse 7 and Optic 6 FAQ
which will also assist with programming problems:
. EPA, ATV, Dual & Triple Rates, Expo Differences & Caution includes ESC / BEC Set Up.

. . Swap servo leads over and see if still the same servo, could be leads or servo itself.

. . . Since the signal goes in channel number order, in high speed control situations, it is a good idea
to set groups to adjacent channels. As the Aurora does permit reassignment of channels,
also try the two servos in adjacent ports, say 1&2 or 5&6 to get closest signal from the transceiver.

... P.Mix - A9 early versions. Do not attempt to assign or P.Mix two channels with same name
e.g. Rudder<>Rudder or Gear<>Gear, otherwise delete model from memory and start over under new model name.
For best performance, check firmware in all three units (TX, Module & Optima) is up to date as shown
Hitec HPP-22 2.4GHz Programmer - Manual, FAQ - How to Install & Use
. V1.08+ does not permit user to assign same name to two different switches.

. Aurora 9 - Programming Chart

. . Aurora 9 - Programming Spreadsheet - Put all your model settings into a Printable Excel Spreadsheet. "

Would be nice to see some of your models listed on
. Aurora 9 - Model Set Up & Templates Program (Model) Templates.
. Index of Acro, Glider, Heli, RC Tanks & Simulator models already listed.

. 28 July 2012:
Aurora 9 - Programming Error Prevention.
"By using the set files, {ex Aurora Templates on FAQ page} one can then scroll through and see how things were
set up by another user.
However, it is important to remember that like other similar Tx, the order of programming and later
adjustments does make a significant difference to the overall result, as shown in short thread:
Factory Reset?
If adjustments are made in the wrong order, then the program will get corrupted.
