Throttle Hold isn't exactly there for as you described it.

Even though the nCPX doesn't auto well, hitting hold and going to higher pitch lift is the habit we are supposed to learn to soften impact or avoid it altogether by continuing to fly without power, gear or clutch engaged. And if you do impact its not still doing the funcky chicken on the ground.

A necessary reflex even for larger heli's.

Cutting the throttle you instantly give up lift usually increasing the impact because low throttle is slight neg lift.
