Aura AFCS

Overview

The Aura is an Advanced Flight Control System (AFCS) for fixed wing aircraft. It is very lightweight and compatible with all major radio brands. You no longer need to spend a fortune, nor be restricted to specific radio brands to experience state of the art control.

The Aura is designed to enhance the pilot's experience, while not interfering with the pilot's control. Your aircraft will feel bigger and flying in less wind, while being as agile and responsive.

The powerful 32-bit processor makes it virtually future proof. The micro USB port makes updates easy, not complex. The firmware can even be updated as new features become available. Today, the Aura 8 offers various three axis rate gyro stabilization modes (and yes, you can turn it off from the transmitter if you choose), but it's new generation six axis sensor means it is ready for the future!
