It would be nice to be able to select whether or not the radio transmitted automatically or if you want the option to not transmit. For 2.4, I'd rather it just transmitted automatically. For binding, the radio not transmitting on startup can be a bit of a pain... Trying to hold the bind button along with looking at the front of the radio and selecting to transmit or not etc...

Split Expo

One function I'd like to see is a split expo function. In other words, I'd like to be able to program different expo on down elevator vs. up elevator. JR has had this since at least the 10x, and is also available on the 12x. I use this on all of my pattern airplanes, and I know the giant scale pilots use it also. This enables us to fine tune the feel of the plane while inverted. I know other pilots who use this capability on aileron and rudder because of the difference in reach of thumbs or fingers for left and right.

I've been thru my manual and played with my Aurora quite a bit. If this is already available, I sure can't find it.

Yeah you kind of need to be an octopus. Another solution is what others have done to the module is do not make the button recessed. This way we don't need a tool to hold in there we can just use a finger.

First let me say I really like the radio. I find that the top switches are too close for my fingers to get between them though. Also I feel the quality of switches are not the greatest. They move side to side and do not firmly click for and back. They feel mushy to me. Not to say they do not work, because they do. They could feel better.

Here's a simple one I think. The ability to transmit after saying 'no transmit'. Many times I want to do some programming and then check it out in transmit mode. I have to turn off the tx and then turn it on again to get the option to transmit.

I noticed that once I turn the radio on and come to the main screen that there is a little transmitter icon that is shaded all black in non transmit mode and it is reversed in transmit mode. If I push this icon I can hear the tx beep but nothing happens. This tells me the sensor underneath that icon is there to do something. To me that something should be to take me back to the initial opening yes or no to transmit menu.

+1

maybe with an "are you sure" screen to be sure that you can't accidentally stop transmitting during a flight?

I guess I should have added this to my initial message. If you turn on your radio and go ahead and transmit, you'll notice that if you push the little tx icon the tx doesn't beep.

So it seems there is no way to turn off transmitting once it's selected, which is the way it should be. Pushing the icon in non transmit mode does beep. So it seems the firmware is almost there to do what I think most would like it to do.

Hope this clarifies my points a little better.

Push and hold the button while in non-transmit mode and it will come back up to the screen and ask if you wish to transmit. Atleast firmware 1.0.5 does this. Once the HPP-22 stuff works again I can test it with 1.0.6.

Are you kidding me!!! Ding, ding ding... we have a winner; undiscovered feature found! I knew it beeped and always wanted to be able to transmit without turning the radio off and on, but I never held it down!

I had to go grab my TX as soon as I read this and "shownuff" ... there it is! Seriously, I did not know about this... we sure didn't find it when writing the manual.

Alan, I think you deserve a T-shirt for that... PM me with you shirt size and mailing address and I'll hook you up with one of our new "Special Edition" "H" logo shirts!

Man, I still can't beleive I missed that for all these months!

Mike.

After looking at the TX and monkeying with it, I realize that it's just a one way deal. on from off, but not the reverse- you cant hold it again and choose to turn it back off with the same prompts. I guess however that it really isn't necessary... I do like that you can transmit without turning off then on!

I know there are different regions selectable in the service menu but never changed them to see if the language changed.
