Guys there is stuff being worked can say what or time table yet. but there is stuff in the works. Right now there is nothing wrong with running patch cables on a full size rx.

I really hope they come out with something soon. I would have already bought the A9 but have been hopefully waiting for 2.4 native, support for 3 axis gyro somehow (not by using full receiver, more like a SAT or S-BUS), maybe an SD card, etc. The A9 has so many things going for it at a reasonable price but I have been waiting for an upgrade to the A9 with some of the things I mentioned. Just not sure how much longer I can hold off. There are some other very good radios for a bit more but I have really taken a liking to the A9. If they could even just say: here is what we are upgrading on the A9 and this is about how long its going to take, then that might be enough to make me wait.

I emailed Hitec time back, and they answered they are working on something about the sat's for the near future.

I heard an interview with a guy from Hitec and he said the Aurora 9 replacement was coming out around September if I remember correctly. He also mentioned that the new radio would be addressing the "latency Issue" . I am waiting to buy the new FlagShip !

I'm not sure who Mike Mayberry is, but the interview I heard was with HITEC's national sales manager,
Shawn Spiker. So he may know more than Mike or less.

Mike Mayberry - as well as an aging memory serves me was in 2003 the Promotions Director, later
Marketing Manager and now Product Development Manager for Hitec RCD USA as well as
. Hitec Team Pilots (http://www.hitecrcd.com/team-hitec/team-hitec-pilots/index.html) - Aircraft Team Manager
. Hitec-Multiplex at the EFExpo 2009 (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showpost.php?p=11893510&postcount=1) which pictures several team members.
Mike is also Hitec RCD USA lead respondent on all forums

Hi Alan,

That's great about Mike. Maybe he'd care to respond here about what Shawn had to say in the interview. It would seem that they are voicing different ideas....

Thanks,

It would seem that they are voicing different ideas... In what way?
Whilst I am not privy to all that is happening in USA, have read most of the feedback
and assumptions on various forums
Post # 11 above pictures a Multiplex Profi and accessories which perhaps will be brought and
revive the Multiplex Tx range later this year, as indicated in post #13 and as requested by many
existing MPX users - a sticking point will always be the cost of FCC compliance.
The Profi Tx is pictured on a Hitec stand no doubt because of the joint booth sponsorship,
but it is not a Hitec unit nor compatible with Hitec systems, simply made by a company
with the same common owner as Hitec RCD.
As Mike stated, all future Hitec Tx will be backwards compatible.

Have not received any indication, from Korea, to indcate that the Hitec system will be
installed and released in a Multiplex case.

In this way ...

Mike: Sorry, no official announcements at this time.
Shawn: There will be a replacement for the Aurora 9 sometime during 3rd quarter of this year (2012).

To many versions of what was said floating online, would very much like to hear
an actual recording of what Shawn said.
Given own knowledge of current production schedules and the logistics of getting
any new transmitter, especially one which will supercede the A9, from factory to
market within the 3rd quarter this year could not be met.
As mentioned previously, Hitec is always working on new innovations and a
replacement for the Aurora could be announced then. Alternatively the MPX Tx line
may be revived in USA, but that is not a replacement of the A9. There is no way a
complete replacement for the Aurora 9 could be on retailers shelves before 30Sep12.

I went back and listened to the interview with Shawn again to refresh my memory.
He didn't say 3rd quarter....what he did say was towards the end of the year 2012.
So that could mean 4th quarter as well.

To me it makes no difference...if they're comming out with a replacement for the Aurora 9 before the end of the year, I am waiting to get the new model. It makes sense that they are running a promo currently on the Aurora...probably want to reduce the enventory of the old model before the release.of the new model later this year.

He also said it would be addressing a whole range of things including the 'latency issue' with the Aurora 9.

Have a good one...

Exited about a new model comming out, any chance that it could be made inflatable, so i could store it in my wallet for easy acces, also wondering about teleportation capabilities in regards to FPV

So, was there ever a new "replacement" Aurora 9 release at the end of 2012?

As advised earlier this thread, no.
However, a new Hitec RCD transmitter to replace the Aurora 9 will be (http://helifreak.com/showpost.php?p=4524326&postcount=2)

We await the resultant photos and details with interest.
