Yes i use my A9 with the nano
As you can see i have throttle, gyro, and pitch all on J3. Rudder and elevator are reversed.
Everything else is setup following the nano CPX manual. I followed the settings for the DX8.
You may want to ask in the Nano thread because i'm sure i've heard of the swash plate going forward and to the left with Spektrum radios too. There is something you should be able to change to get it working. Make sure the channels are set up correctly. Also i used a flight condition for my throttle hold

Hammer22 sent a module with updated firmware
I checked out Karl Kethler's setup document mentioned on the Crash Cast.
Here is Karl's setup link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...4kSFM6irU/edit
Karl's document covers servo and channel assignment and order which is a change from A9 default.
I did depart from Karl's and Hammer22's advice by increasing all end points to 140.
Channel assignments are as follows:
Ch1 Ail J1
Ch2 Elev J2
Ch3 Thro J3
Ch4 Rudd J4
Ch5 Pitch J3
Ch6 Gyro null
I am a new heli pilot so I used lower rates than recommended in the nano manual.
Dual Rates and Expo
Ail and Elev 60% with expo -20%, both low and high rates are mapped to switch A
Rudd 80% with -10% expo, both low and high rates are mapped to switch D
Ail and Elev 80% with expo -10%
Rudd 100% with -10% expo
The A9 throttle curve has 7 points vs spektrum's 5 point. I used the programming recommendations for the DX7s on p 6 of the nano manual. I mapped the throttle and pitch curve to the 3 position switch E
I set Point 2 on the throttle curve to 40% and placed a straight edge from point 2 to position 7 which is 100%. I then "drew" a straight line with the curve to point 7 at 100%.
The curve values are as follows:
point 1 0
point 2 40%
point 3 53%
point 4 67%
point 5 79%
point 6 90%
point 7 100%
ST 1 all positions 1 through 7 are at 100%
Hold all positions 1 through are 0%
The pitch curve is as follows. It is also mapped to switch E. I used the same method to determine the curve. I set position 1 at 30% and position 7 at 100% and drew a straight line between the 2 points.
The values are as follows:
point 1 30%
point 2 41%
point 3 54%
point 4 64%
point 5 76%
point 6 87%
point 7 100%
St-1 and Hold are as follows:
point 1 0%
point 2 25%
point 3 40%
point 4 55%
point 5 70%
point 6 85%
point 7 100%

That couldn't be!
Created a new model in my A9, set all settings correctly (think so). And the damn left aileron goes down and elevator a little up while throttling up. Not possible to control the heli, because no response of the aileron/elevator stick while throttling
If I don't throttle up, aileron and elevator works fine.
What the hell .....

in the short version:
I have put a subtrim of -62 to the aileron and +62 to the elevator (or the other way around, but I think -62 = aileron & +62 = elevator).
Swashplate = 1 Servo (90°)
The solution with the subtrim is confirmed with "Hammer22". Maybe its not the value of "62" in the subtrim on your heli, but these values works for me.

I have another question -- is this module compatible with all futaba 2.4ghz systems? FASST and FHSS?
If I get a module for an Aurora 9, will it be out of the box compatible with, for example, an 8FG Super or an 8J? Or will there be mods required?
I've read that the pinouts are the same for futaba and hitec -- but I just want to make sure.
And yes this may be a noob question. Thank you -- I really haven't been able to find a clear answer. I'm 85% sure they are compatible lol.

Module for aurora 9
I'm very interested to buy your module 2.4 spektrum compatible for my aurora 9.
Questions? it is full compatible with all spektrum recivers or same are not?
If I buy a heli: blade nano cpx BNF, can i bind it and fly or not?
If I add two satelit to my Align 3gx, can I use the align 3gx like reciver?
Why it cost so much, spektrum sell the original module, more a reciver for 110 US$.
Thanks for answers.
