I use mix 3
make it a THRO to THRO mix
POS 0 Should be 0% in both Positions
POS 1 make both settings -100% that is minus 100%
you do that by changing the position of throttle stick
Set Offset to -200 that is minus 200
make sure that "mix" is set to position 1
Leave THRO STK Inhibited (INH)

Now when you put the throttle hold switch in position 1 (toward you) the motor will be disabled. Hope this helps and if you have any questions please ask.
This is the original moparherb post for throttle switch. For the DX7, mine would not go to -200 offset, so I just went to the max negative offset of -125 and it worked. Then I mixed the flaps to the throttle stick when the switch is in Position 0.

Oh, and as always, best to remove prop or disable motor prior to messing with throttle mixes.
