Why would you want to that? If you ever had a motor inadvertently start when you plug in your LiPo, you'd reconsider bypassing/disabling the safety feature. At best you scare yourself and damage the plane, at worst that prop can do nasty damage to skin and flesh.

Just my 2 cent safety thought

I cut that switch off of all my E-Flite 60s. It is just another potential failure point. I have only had one actually fail, but I have read about many, many more here on RCG.

Using throttle hold is a good habit to learn in my opinion, especially if you also fly a heli.
