I would like to be able to program a sequence into the radio for retract landing gear so as to have the gear deploy and retract in a more scale manner. The servo speed option approaches this, but a sequence would be better.

Being a sailplane pilot here are my "wanted":

1-Would love to have the adjust function for aileron differential fixed: now the adjust function only acts on one aileron at time (depending if it is + or -), this makes it useless for "in flight" adjustment. Since ail. diff. is a very important feature in glider programming and fine tuning, I would love to be able to set it once on the ground and fine tune it in flight using a digital trim.

2- Logic switches: i.e. programming some stick activated switches (there is only one available on throttle stick to activate the butterfly). This is, to my opinion, the only major miss of the Aurora software capabilities compared to the top end Radios.
This would be especially useful if it could activate flight condition and mixes.

thanks for considering the above,

marco,

italy

If you tap the word AILE of the far left of the screen it will select both aileron channels. The problem is that you still cannot adjust in flight. You can set the up and down throw of both channels but this is actually too much. When you tap the AILE so both are selected and then move the stick right then it will be adjusting the up on one wing and down on the other. This function really should just have one number for both channels or at most one for each channel. As it is right now it is just another end point adjustment. Also if it is reduced to just one number then it should be capable of going both + and -.

I have 2 requests.
1. Have the ability to have the timer activate on the throttle % not the stick position. For us heli pilots this would prevent the timer from stopping when going full negative pitch and the timer could be turned off through an entire autorotation unlike now where it starts again when pitch is applied when flaring for landing.

2. Have the ability with a module update to disable scan mode for us that have no need for it. I accidently held the button down too long when trying to do a range check which resulted in having to rebind all reveivers after switching back to normal.
If this is not possible maybe you could extend the time it takes going into scan mode by a few more seconds.

I have the timer come on/off with the idle up switch. That should work for you, shouldn't it?

Does it turn the timer off when you flip the T. Hold switch.

1.Be able to re arrange the preference order of the models set up.
2.When flying only show the SPC voltage and timer in BIG fonts.
3. A option to use the sliders to adjust the expo on elev and ail. to see what suits you before locking it in.

I think the expo curve needs flattening a little to make it have more of a smoothe curve in the next update also. Maybe make it a user adjustable curve like a throttle or pitch curve would be good. That way everyone would be able to tweak to their personal liking.

I agree, compared to my previous JR radio I feel I have less control to my liking and flying style.

1/ Put the "Flight Condition alarm at start up option" in the Flight Condition menu, so each flight condition can be set to alarm or not. For helicopters this would allow only flight conditions that affect throttle up to be alarmed (not throttle hold).

2/ As others have said, have the ability to have the timer activate on the throttle percent/servo position, not the stick position.

3/ As others have said, be able to rearrange the the order of the models, like in the flight conditions menu.

4/ Be able to add a switch to inhibit or silence the low SPC voltage alarm.

5/ I also agree about the expo curves.

6/ Show the numeric position (+/- percent) in the monitor screen.

7/ Flash the receiver LED when there is no signal, and use another LED state to show the Rx is in fail safe (fail safe has been programmed).

2 more items for the wish list.

1. I would really like the ability when creating a new model or copying a model to be able to select what model memory position to use. On my other radios I typically like to use the bottom half of the model memory for copies. For instance 1-15 for current models and 16-30 for copies. This is on my 9303. One other option would be the way the priority thing works on the flight conditions program. the ability to shift models up or down would be nice too.

2.Now for telemetry, The new RCEXL ingitions have a wire on the ingition for a tach. Could you incorporate a plug-in-lead to add to the sensor station for rpms without having to use the mag or optical sensor.

I also see the new blue sensor station for electrics. Thats awesome. The amps and volts are great but I really want a mAh counter. It would take ALL of the guess work out of when it is actually time to land. Just set the alarm to about 75% of the battery capacity and it will give you time to land without ever going over 80% again.

Same here exact same feeling.

I would also like to see 2 levels of voltage alarms on the telemetry. Reason being would be a semi-low alert and a critical alert. I think in many cases you would not need to fly a timer anymore (electric aircraft) if we had two levels of alarms.

The HPP-22 software needs to be redesigned to not require an internet connection. There is no reason for it. We should be able to download the firmware to our local drive and upgrade equipment at the field using a laptop.
