Cx3x2000 with aurora A9

Can anyone offer any advice on setting up this gyro with a hitec aurora a9 tx? I'm in the process of assembling a cx250se and am having no joy making this combo work properly

On page 43 of the Aurora manual, you will see the setting of Single servo, 90 degree swash. That is the setting you want to select when you set up your 3x2000.

http://hitecrcd.com/files/Aurora_9X_Manual_EN_V1.2.pdf

From there, follow the instructions in the CopterX manual for setting up and calibrating your Tx. Subtrim and end points in the Tx are used to get the sticks to center and adjust proper throws in the CopterX software. Then you go about setting up your servos in the software as well as installation direction of the gyro.

Just make sure that you have any swash mixes turned OFF in the Tx before setting up the calibration in the gyro itself.

I have been flying mine for some time now about 2 months on my HK450 build.
It continues to have very fast and precise jerks or jumps in the cyclic and tail.
About every 20-30 seconds the tail or the cyclic will jerk to one direction about 25 or 30
It happens sporadically as it will fly perfect for 30 seconds or so with no jerks then out of nowhere you get a very fast tail or cyclic twitch.
As there is so much time between where all is well and when it jerks, I do not think it is vibration related.
Rather it seems to be software routine, interrupt or firmware bug related..
I have just been flying and putting up with it.
Seems to be the nature of this FC it's an unfinished incomplete piece of crap!!
But is now flyable with it's stupid random jerks.

This is why I am grounding mine for good. This FBL controller just isn't worth the trouble anymore.

I did give up on it at one point. Shelved it for 6 months. Pulled it back out again after I built a 450 pro and aTrex 500. It flies okay if all you want to do is scale flight or a little light sport flying. I don't trust it for going full 3D. It's just too unpredictable for me to trust it.

Mine is being replaced by an iKon.

Already did. Put it on today and put 15 packs through it. 3 at home to adjust gains, and 12 at the field. So much easier to set up, and a pleasure to fly.
