Eclipse 7 Pro Flap and Landing Gear Operations

I am using an Eclipse 7 QCPM with 2.4 Module. I am a mostly a scale electric powered plane builder/flier and wish I had 3 position flaps with variable lower/raise speeds and elevator/flap offset mix. Also want variable speed landing gear raise/lower speed. Also want differential ailerons simultaneous with the above flap and gear features.

It looks as if the Aurora 9 and DX8, etc., have all of the above capabilities.

It does not look as if the new Eclipse 7 Pro offers the above features and is not any different than my old Eclipse 7 in these specific areas.

Please confirm or set me straight on this. I'm getting ready to upgrade to get these and other capabilities.

Correct, not available on the Eclipse 7 Pro which is a revamped version of the Eclipse 7.
not enough room on the memory for a total makeover of the firmware.
For additional Eclipse flap mixing, please refer to:
. Hitec Eclipse 7 & Eclipse 7 Pro - All Manuals, Addenda, Quick Setup, CCPM and Additional Programming FAQ
Further to the Aurora manual, various user notes are available under:
Hitec USA Support Forum Sticky:
. Aurora 9, AFHSS Spectra Modules, Optima Transceivers, Minima Receivers
& Telemetry
- FAQ & Undocumented Features ]
(quick search = Ctrl+F & - insert Flap)

The Aurora 9 has 30 model memory plus any one or all can be transferred to & from a PC giving unlimited models.
The Eclipse 7 Pro has 16 model memory which is fixed.
