    Hi everyone

    Not sure if it's proper to post this here , but i'm still under training myself handling my f210 3d , and i found a video shown how to activate the hold throttle switch on the devo 7 .
    I did activateed it on 5% throttle .
    Still don't understand what is the benifit of switching this knob either on 5% or little bit higher ?

    What i'm fliying and then engaging the switch on it the quad will fall down but the blades still will run depending on the setting i choose . If i switch the hold knob first before flying it will start the blades without any controling of the throttle stick .

    Please anyone educate me here . Can it be used to make the training easy or it's just desing for the safety of the quad not to over speeding accidentally?

    Thanks

    Ok .. i searched the web throughly and found that most of the posts about this topic says it's all about preventing accidental throttle move to higher position.

    Now, what about if i set it up to about exactly hovering for example 27-30 % throttle?

    This will make training much easier i guess ?

    So when start the quad i just flip the switch to hold position in about that range and continue training and when i want it the land i turn the the trottle stick to about 10% then switch the hold switch off and control the quad from that point all the way down .

    Anyone suggest anything or see any mistake here ?

    This would be done by advanced users not for training.

    You can use it for 0 throttle as a kill switch while you are preparing your quad for flight, or your can use it as a hover switch.

    Thanks Brian for offering the help always.

    I treid the hold throttle switch and it wasn't as i thought . It also let you stick to one single throttle level , i felt that it will distroy any future improvements of skills as if you just being driving your car in the first gear for years !

    Anyway i found a very very helpful video that. Shows how to alter the throttle curve in a way let the the biggners control the quad much much easier .
    I followed the instructions and changed the throttle curve as in the video , thd next day i even changed the curve points even more low to prevent the quad from elevting higher and guess what ? It turn so so easy to handel and to practice all the time .

    By the time anyone could increaes the level of the throttle curve more linear as he or she feels gaining experience in controling the quad .

    I strongly urge any newbe to alter the throttle curve of his f210 to a lower ponits .
