The Aura 8 is the an advanced flight control system 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 types to experience state of the art control.
The Aura 8 is designed to enhance the pilots experience, while not interfering with the pilots control. Your aircraft will fly as if it were bigger, and in less wind, even though it is as agile as you want it to be.
The Aura 8 Open Stock version of the ships with a blank configuration that can be configured to virtually any fixed wing aircraft. With easy to use features like Quick Set and Quick Trim, many aircraft (up to 2 aileron, 2 elevator, 1 rudder) can even be initially setup at the field using only a transmitter and a receiver with a digital data feed (DSM2/DSMX Satellites, Futaba S.Bus, or SRXL (Spektrum, JR Mode B, and Graupner SumD).
The Aura Config Tool , our free PC application, can be used to fine tune and perfect your model. We've designed the Aura Config Tool with the Pilot's ease of use in mind. With the 'New Config File Wizard' and example Aura Config Files available for download, you'll be able to quickly setup the Aura for your aircraft.
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 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.

I have the Aura 8 in five airplanes. It allows ME to fly in wind like a bigger airplane without noticing it is helping. I feel totally in control.
Aura 8 AFCS
The Aura 8 is a nice compact and full featured Advanced Flight Control System that will pair up with nearly any type/brand of receiver. For a clean and compact setup I use the DSMX or DSM2 satellite receivers. I have these currently installed on the Big Beaver and Veloxity and am very happy with the results on both. The Aura provides a clean feel on the sticks, has variable flight modes and can even be turned off if you prefer to fly without it. Biggest advantage for me is that it helps to keep the plane calm on days when the flying conditions are less than ideal. Great Product.
