You might want to look at the THR.CUT and change its MODE to ESC and MIX to OFF (not INH), move down to THR, set stick to min and press the jog for 0%. Enable any switch & position as safety switch.
NOTE: If you hit the switch you have to pull down THR stick before enabling it by the switch, check the SERVO monitor again.
Thanks, I tried this before (slightly different method) and yours as well, didn't work. TX beeps constantly if throttle stick is all the way up, warning I guess that throttle is 100%!?
