You got my attention. I have been shopping for a replacement for my 9303. But I really don't want to spend money on 20 year old technology in a shiny new box. Subscribed.

One more feature which will be useful would be the ability to store a text file linked to each model.
With more than 1 model, I sometimes do not remember the batteries installed on each, and how to recharge them. So I would like to have the ability to store a text file, written on a PC, on board the model, which could be read on the display.
Another feature would be a log book stored on the transmitter that will log flights for each model.

There are 16 characters for model name, and 16 characters for model info currently. I could make it so that the model info was the filename if that was chosen instead of a text string.

...that feature could fall under the class of "third party app" to run in the Tx, no?... storing a DB of text strings for a model that doesn't in any way relate to flight control. pretty simple app to log a pile of notes on a plane, unlimited by the size of the memory card, etc.

The way I see the logbook working is that every time I switch the TX off I get a screen for a log book entry. The time of the flight can be given by the TX automatically, and I have room for entering text, either free text or a form, for each entry. This entry (or entries) can then be downloaded to an app on my PC or smart phone where a full DB is stored and maintained.

I think it will be nice to have. Many times I wanted to keep log of my flights, but I just don't have the dissipline to continue doing it. This will help.

BUT - BUT

If it is going to delay the release date by any means, leave it till later or for a third party application.

The log book idea with where you had the switches would be great so you don't switch to a model that needs high rates to fly and you remember low rates because you have too many models. Or have a note pad page to remind you when you start a model.

Thanks

Our Aurora 9 module gives you these features on the Aurora 9's screen. Of course our transmitter does as well.
