I moved away from trainer switch and just assign CH 5 to a normal switch.

Take off and fly procedure
- All sticks in mid position
- Flick switch to "Up" position
-> ArDrone takes off and enter position hold
- Fly around
- ArDrone will automatically enter position hold when "Roll" and "Pitch" stick is in the middle.
- During position hold or flying around, move throttle up from mid stick to ascend
- Move throttle down from mid stick to descend
- Move throttle to middle to enter altitude hold

Landing procedure
- Find a nice spot
- Flick the switch "down"
-> ArDrone make a slow landing and switch off the motors

and..... repeat for more fun
