Not 100% sure about the DX7 but if its anything like the DX6i then Spektrum did not program the radio to be able to disable the throttle channel in acro or airplane mode

A friend of mine programmed his DX7 so a switch disables the electric motor. There is no way the motor can run unless the switch is in the correct position. No, I do not know how he did it, but obviously it can be done......

You didn't say electric powered, but it read that way to these ole "eyes".

See if this is what you are looking for. The topic has been covered many times, so you will find other examples with a quick search.


EDIT: Same idea is covered by Dan777. You may still want to view the thread as it gives a bit of explanation.
