Not only what OlliW just said but there is a thing I call throttle drift. As the battery wears down the pilot has to proportionally increase the throttle to offset the voltage drop consistantly or within a minute or so the heli is sitting close to or already on the ground. You are better off using the upper control switch on the left top of your Dx6i, and setting a flat throttle curve at lets say 65% or whatever keeps your heli up in the air in idle 2 or 3 position. Even so it wont stay up that long.

You really want to leave the throttle hold alone so you can safely move your heli, adjust things, and flip it in a hurry during crash or emergancy situations to keep from stripping your gears or such.
