Aurora 9 - Battery Installed ex Factory is part #54128 "TX NiMH battery (6 cell) Pack (Flat Type) for AUR (RA9) 7.2v / 1300 MAh"(not an Eneloop 2000)......Includes notes on Battery Compartment Size, Alternate Batteries and 2S Lipo Capabilities for Aurora & Optima RX.
Aurora 9 - Lipo User Adjustable Voltage sets Shut Down = TURNS TX OFF to save damage to Lipo Battery and/or TX
(Audible Battery Warning is still at 6.9V with Lipo which provides say 10-20 min before shutdown.)
Aurora 9 - Warning Alarms Battery types, voltage levels and consumption. CAUTION - Leave Auto Hibernation (was Auto Power Off prior to V1.06) as "Never" when using Lipo Battery. During "Auto Hibernation" (as with laptops) TX Does Not Switch everything Off and batteries will be completely drained if TX switch is not manually moved to the off position in good time. Remove battery and store separately if TX is to be unused for a period.

"S" is for single so as to make the setting unique to the condition. T.App is Trim Apply - activate this if trims are to be the same in all conditions. NB activate at start not part way/end of program or other conditions will be out of sync. - Set Up Conditions incl. Video
