With this system, you will make a torqroll without touching the handle of your remote control.

But what interest?

Hi Guys,
Thanks for the interest... The Aura is certainly working very well for us. It is fully designed and coded from the ground up here in the USA by our group of very experienced experts. Probably the first ones will go out in the QQ Extra 300, then not long after that open stock. We will have several units on display at Toledo, and flying them at SEFF and Joe Nall, etc. Dates.... well, we are saying Summer... Thinking Mid-June, but it is very hard to predict exactly.... Customs and ports have had a lot of delays for us thus far....
It uses the latest generation sensor, and has a very powerful processor... so it has a great future.... as it's USB port allows firmware updates and so forth.

Best Regards,

Might as well just let someone else fly your plane and save the money. Mabey im missing something here but I fail to see what is impressive about a plane flying itself in a way that takes away from a pilot learning or improving?? I thought the whole idea was for the pilot to control or LEARN to control the plane?????? How is anyone supposed to learn if its automated???
I can see it now. When you come in to torque roll low with these devices, instead of hearing LOWER with applause, you'll hear COWARD, CHEATER, P_ _SY..... IMHO this is not good for the hobby. Just sayin.

Anybody who would say that kind of stuff is not good for the hobby. The plane will not fly itself with this device. A device like this will assist where needed and actually help you learn new things. Kinda like using a trainer to learn on instead of a 40% 3D monster.

Also I will say no harm or insult intended to QQ or the Flex crew. Looking forward to see what other airframes they present in the future as im sure they will fly good, even without automated electronic gizmo's.

Thanks Eric for the insult and thumbs down. I guess since you said so, im no good for the hobby. I wont quit helping people learn to fly natural. You make it sound as though one has to promote a automated product to help newcomers or others learn to fly. To each their own opinion.

Yes, but there was no need to down on the product either. I think this is a GREAT break through. I wonder how it compares to the Demon Cortex.
