Question
OEM A9 Screen Protector

There was some discussion in the big A9 thread about screen protectors. During the discussion someone suggested that the screen protector that came with the A9 was not meant to be left on. Is that correct? I have the protectors from RCSreen Protectors to replace it if necessary.

. Individual choice.

The screen protector as fitted on receipt of an Aurora, is to protect the screen during assembly and shipping.
Some users, myself included, leave the factory film on any model of TX as long as possible,
others remove the film for aesthetics/clearer screen or replace with a thicker aftermarket unit immediately.

Known aftermarket screen protectors, there may be other suppliers.
. RC Screen Protectors
. Garrett H - Aurora 9 Screen Protectors - (included RC Groups thread on how to fit.)

. Problems with Intermittent Screen Changing or Cursor jumping?
"Firmware verson has no such effect.
It is possible if the screen protector has "crept" moved to one side and is putting pressure in
various spots or the screen has moved slightly and pressure is being put on screen by case. "

. Aurora 9 Touch Screen problems
"Possibly residual pressure on some point of the screen.
Is any screen protector still in place or bunching in any area thus putting additional pressure
on the screen which could try to activate an icon when pressure applied to one inline with the pressure point"
Also try loosening and re-tightening case screws in case Tx has been dropped and case sides/screen shifted.

. Aurora 9 - Monitor Icons Jitter [no Optima turned thus feedback is eliminated.
"So I finally got my radio back from the Hitec rep. Says that the only reason it's doing that is because of the sub-trims set too high. For example, my elevator sub-trim was at -50.
He said that when the sub-trim are out by so much the radio can have mental issues (my words, not his) and can even freeze up completely. "

Thanks Alan. FWIW I measured the OEM protector and it is .08mm. The ones from RC Screens is .16mm. The OEM protector works fine for me and I see no reason to remove it until worn.

I am sticking with the OEM screen protector myself. No need for after market unit since the included one works quite well.

IMO, it is down to individual choice.

Well, I did notice that I could see the screen a whole lot clearer when I pulled the OEM protector off.
