Thanks, Alan, but i don't find a solution to my problem in there...

My Rex 600E has two batteries - one for RX (SPC, 2 cells) and one for flight (BlueSS, 6 cells). The alarm for the flight battery is set to 20.4 volts. The A9 should (and does) beep when reaching that limit. But when i disconnect the flight battery the A9 starts beeping too (every time!) and i am not able to stop that - except by reconnecting the battery or switching off the A9. The same thing happens with all my 6 cell helis but not with the 3 cell Rex 450.

What i'm asking for is a way to acknowledge the warning so the A9 stops beeping without switching it off. I would like to check the telemetry data after flight without risking to start the heli by accident.

Danke & Gre
Chris

Another option is to ditch the seperate battery for your SPC port, and run a line from the ESC plug that plugs into the flight battery straight to your SPC port. You will then get your flight pack telemetry, and can set your alarm. I run this setup in my electric helis and it works great.

Does not help! It would still be beeping after disconnecting the flight pack, like it does on my Atom 500 (6 cell directly to SPC, no extra RX battery). Same setup with 3 cells (T-Rex 450 Pro) does not beep after disconnecting.

I'd liked to see programmable warnings at turning on the transmitter.
Switch A = this position
Switch B = that position
-> Warning

Alan T.
in your link it says:
"Voltage alarm may sound on Aurora when RX/Power battery is disconnected. This is because the telemetry cycles about 3 times/second, sometimes when you are unplugging the battery it will sense the voltage drop and the warning will kick in, but sometimes it won't because once you unplug the battery there is no signal going back to the TX. This is a hit and miss thing due to the way the system works."

this explains WHY it beeps, though it does not solve the problem.
or am I missing something?
why isn't it possible to turn off that beep e.g by touching the area of the screen where the voltage is displayed for, let's say, 3 seconds. as like resetting the counter!?

I thought there was a fix coming for the alarm when unplugging the main lipo. Eg. alarm silent button.

I'm still waiting Hitec.....

Ok, my soiftware wish includes hardware as well.


I would like to have a channel update for the A9 expanding it to 14 channels. But same time Hitec would have to develop a 14 ch RX.....

Wish List

Hi
I finally found something that would be usefull with our transmitters : A , "note pad " We can keep out notes on battery type and capacity , in the radio . Even keep a cycleing history . I think this would be nice .

RSSI - Received Signal Strength Indication (or at least lost packets, or both). It would be useful for long distance flying as well as for finding lost model...
(It would be a big competitive advantage!)

How about adding a simple Flaps -> Aile Reflex -> Elev Mix to the Acro choices. Essentially, this would be like BFly / CROW for Glid, except that Flap activation off a switch would drive it. This would be a GREAT mix for landing warbirds or any plane with high wing loading.

After a lot of work, I somehow got this to work via the Cambmix for one model, but was not able to duplicate for another. It would be nice to have a canned mix available.

Electric Fuel Gauge

Im flying 4-5 electric powered A/Cs. Telemetry is very usefull especially during tuning powerpant etc. One Sensor station is enough in this case. What would be great (and is available with other 2,4GHz systems already) is "fuel gauge" computing consumed Ah with adjustable sound warning. This would push me to install sensors into all of my aircrafts. Has HITEC intention to introduce such feature into some nearest SW version?

I don't want to start a separate thread for this- how about a rpm sensor for brushless motors? The kind that are already in use in other systems, that just compare the voltage zero-crossing on two motor phase wires. With all the electric systems now it seems odd there are speed/rpm sensors geared for helis and fuel planes...

If this has already been discussed I apologize, but a search revealed nothing on this.

Hi.

I don't know if it is already here but some people from "rcmania.cz" describes problems with "stopwatch" in Aurora9.

1second in Aurora9 is not realy 1second. :-)

v 1.07

10min cyclus ---- aurora9 dislays 9:47

v 1.8

10min cyclus ---- Aurora9 (without transmitting) displays 8:42
10min cyclus ---- Aurora9 (with transmitting) displays 9:30

Can anybody check and fix this.

Thanks
