+5mm, but I'd like more.

The tray looks nice. I'm using the tray from Esprit. Had to move the handle clips a little.

I seem to have lost the lever on the F switch on the left rear of my aurora 9. Anyone know of any parts to repair or will I have to send it in to Hitec for repair.

Mike,

Re your survey on trays and sticks.

I'm a thumber set at about +2mm. I'm an e-sailplaner and I like to be very light on the sticks so I always fly with a neckstrap and balancer. I'd really like to try a tray and have looked at several.

Your image of a Hitec tray looks like it would be very good...tempting I think. Would like to see it with an over-the-shoulder harness to dristibute weight more effectively so I could fully support my hands on the tray.

By the way -- Really like my A9! Thanks for a good product.

Dave

Which voltage setting should I set, the one in the SPECTRA 2.4 upgrade section or in the Edit/Setup menue section?

Now I have the following situation:
I have the flightpack 6S on the SPC port, when plugging in the pack the A9 display shows the battery sign with the actual voltage of the pack, when unplugging the pack I get a continous beeping from the module and the A9!!!!

So I have always to shut down my A9 when changeing flightpacks!

Is there a way not getting a continous beep when unplugging the flightpack?

Thanks
Martin

Mike.
as for me mostly the tx is doing that noise (beeping), and sometimes tx and module together.

Here's a picture of my tray. I originally used a neck strap. Since this picture, I changed the transmitter attachment to a velcro arrangement and went with straight eyebolts and this harness. http://www.qualityrcproducts.com/prod_harness.html
Much easier on the neck and back.

But don't say that's normal that I have to shut down my A9 when unpluging the flight pack to stop the beep

No, for me thats also very annoying.
There has to be a solution, at least with the next firmware upgrade... I hope so.

No, I fear there is no way. Otherwise the solution would have been posted immideately by the profs.

Also, there are many other things which are not realized yet.

A question to Mike:
What improvements are planned for V1.08 and when will it be published, can you estimate?

Are the LED's flashing continously or only when servos are being used?
Battery pack and style in use e.g. old 4cell NiMH/NiCd?
Many 4 cell NiMH may show good volts whilst little load applied but as soon as servos are exercised will drop momentarily, long enough to trigger a warning of a bad/discharged pack. Similar problems have been reported when user has failed to save the desired battery alert setting after loading Module V2.0.
Hitec 2.4Ghz Systems Upgrade Manual refer section "SPECTRA 2.4 v2.00 Low Battery Warning (LBW) Function"
After Spectra Pro has been upgraded to V2.0, select/save the 4 & 5 cell configuration if SPC is not being used. (Aurora can adjust on screen later)
