Help!
Aurora9

Just bought an Aurora9 and trying to programme it. When I go into system,motor, motor control, mix inh and press act the screen goes blank. The tx will not turn off at the switch and I had to unplug the batt, it then takes about 2 minutes to start to work again. Anyone else find a similar problem. Is it a software problem?

Is it a software problem?: No, for Aurora 9 Battery information, please refer to:

. Aurora 9 - Off/On Switch problem? A9 Auto Saves (flash) each session's programming & trim changes on shutdown.
Allow time to complete task before switching on again.
and as in post #2, being a new Tx:
. Aurora 9 - Battery is not charged. Charge before first use so as not to damage battery.
Battery is 1300 mAh_charge rate is 80 mAh (to minimise damage if left on to long at any time) = 19-20 hours for first full charge - please read the further details.

. Aurora 9 - Battery Installed ex Factory is part #54128 "TX NiMH battery (6 cell) Pack (Flat Type)
for AUR (RA9) 7.2v / 1300 MAh"(not an Eneloop 2000)......
Includes notes on Battery Compartment Size, Alternate Batteries and 2S Lipo Capabilities for Aurora & Optima RX.

. Aurora 9 - Lipo User Adjustable Voltage sets Shut Down. = TURNS TX OFF to save damage to Lipo Battery and/or TX
(Audible Battery Warning is still at 6.9V with Lipo which provides say 10-20 min before shutdown.)
. Aurora 9 - Warning Alarms Battery types, Voltage Level Interpretation & Consumption.
CAUTION - Leave Auto Hibernation (was Auto Power Off prior to V1.06) as "Never" when using Lipo Battery.
During "Auto Hibernation" (as with laptops) TX Does Not Switch everything Off
and batteries will be completely drained
if TX switch is not manually moved to the off position in good time. Remove battery and store separately if TX is to be unused for a period.


. Aurora 9 - 110/230 Vac charger Charge Plug/adaptor sizes.
[Red LED does not change to Green simply dims out but charge continues same rate].

and much more infornmation under Hitec USA Support Forum Sticky:
Aurora 9, AFHSS Spectra Modules, Optima Transceivers, Minima Receivers
& Telemetry
- FAQ & Undocumented Features
- Mixes, Setups, Tips. {Individual Links often updated}
