Devo 8s question

Hi guys, sorry.... dumb question.

What does "All servos hold" mean in Walkera speak?

I'm assuming that it just freezes the servos while you are adjusting things like pitch and throttle curves... It's not a perminate selection, or tied to the switch postion right?

Cheers.

Hold just means that in case of signal loss the receiver continues to send the same information to the servos, so they keep their positions until the signal is restored (by which time the model may have crashed). For most purposes, the only important failsafe setting is that throttle go to zero.

Throttle hold is an entirely different thing. It means you can flip a switch on the transmitter and force the throttle (on a heli) to a preset position (idle).

Nope, it means what he wrote, i.e. the tx won't send those values out while you are setting them.

Fail safe is an other feature of the DEVO...
