Hi all im looking for a new radio and i was looking at the Hitec Aurora 9. My question is is there any reason not to get this radio? It has everything that i want in a radio and i am planning on getting this or the new dx7s although i like the Hitec Aurora 9 better so is there any reason why i should go with the dx7s over the Aurora

Mabey one day i will actually land one of these things !!

Hitec

I dont see why not. The only complaint I have ever heard about this radio is that it's kinda cramped in larger hands. I would reccommend holding both to see which is more practical for you.

Aurora 9 all the way!

I was gonna go spektrum, BUT i cant gain enough confidence in the radio and its lockout issues. I will never own one, and i believe they have wayyy too many problems. Aurora 9 is the way to go. Touch screen/ backlit screen, setup asks you questions while programming. Cant be better. Binding/ failsafe features are a breeze and take seconds.

Well first of all the xg8 is illegal in the USA it's not passed FCC and uses different technology then the dsmx. So you can get rxs in the USA. Now the A9 is a perfect radio. Have had one for 4 years now. I had the 3rd one in the country for testing I have had zero issues from day one. I have flown it in helicopters and just about ever type of airplane including 40% aircraft. And have flown the radio at big events. now with the other 2.4 systems that's a different store I lost about 4 big airplanes to spectrum after like 100 flights on each aircraft. And was losing bind on them so would have to rebind the aircraft.

Another nice thing about the A9 is you can program and switchor button to do anything you want unlike the dx7s including the new one I got to play with one like 3 months ago.

My buddy has one and the only issue I see with it is it does not have a model match of any sort. So it is possible to connect to the wrong heli/plane if you are not careful......Ron

Latency is the biggest marketing thing there is The human being cant react as fast as our radios can. Justin Jee still flys the radio and loves it and he isnt even flying for hitec. There is alot of people using the radio. At least they dont come out with a complete new system every year and all your rxs are obselte. And the system works just fine have had mine for like 4 years, had the third one in the country. I have had zero issues. But yet I see team JR/spektrum guys putting stuff in all the time with lock out issue. I have put the system in everything out there. Including uavs, with gps, video and autopilots all with in a small compartment. Probably ssome of the most dirty enviroment for the system, and there was no issues.

I used to own a A9 sold it to get a 8fg with sbus. Couldnt tell the difference between the two. 8fg is 0.011s and the A9 is 0.050s (i.e. .039s ~4 hundredths of a sec..)

I would like to see a 2nd part of the video with it in normal speed to see if we can notice the difference, because who flys in slow motion?

Jr locks out too! Happened to two of my friends. Bought new rx, bound them correctly. Oh wait also, a guy with a 40% plank got a lock out flying JR at my club. Recently switch to spektrum, well.... another lock out mid flight. HA you just cant trust them two brands. A9 all the way! Never ever hardly hear of any issues with the A9. And who wants to scroll menus with a roller? not me, touch screen is the future. Sorry spektrum and JR, some of your radios just arent up to par with the A9.

And latency is so small that you cant feel the difference. Slow motion is different than what you feel in real time. You can see it in slo mo, but cant feel it in the everyday flying.

And deadzones can be fixed. Especially with fbl units. Atleast with my MB i can. AND they resolved that issue with later on. I dont have that issue. Even with my FB helis.

Latency and resolution are not magic pixie dust phenomena. They can and do make a noticeable difference.

Then again, I know many people that can't tell the difference between coke and pepsi, 87 octane and 93 octane gasoline, louisiana hot sauce and red-hot brand sauce, 15% heli fuel and 30% heli fuel, Aquafresh and kitty litter. Ooops, got a little carried away with the last comparison.

I have yet to speak with a pilot that cannot tell the difference between an Airtronics SD-10G's FHSS-3 and the radios they have owned previously.

I know I can tell the difference. Of course, I don't brush my teeth with kitty litter.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

You enjoy that radio, from what I can read in the online radio manual, its a steal for all the functions it gives.

Post back I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the latency issue that people seem to talk about, It would be good to hear your views on it after you get the chance to flog it round the sky.

Good luck

I will ALWAYS back the A9, I sold my spektrum and JR stuff to go with Hitec. At first I was apprehensive about it, now I fly with more confidence than i ever have. I have been flying RC planes/helis for over 20 years, I can not distinguish the "latency" differences between the A9 and the DX8, or the JR 11X, of the futaba 8FG. It is really a personal thing, how the model feels while you fly it. I just want say "You can TRUST the Aurora 9" the only bummer part is i still have to have a Spektrum Dx6i for those sweet BNF models that are always coming out.

there is no 12 step program for heli addicition.... i wouldn't go anyways.
