DX7 Throttle cut if bad signal lo radio power
I have just bought a DX7 and after a Futaba 6XH, quite a lot to learn before I do flight trials.
Anyway, most things sorted BUT:-
Can I programme the throttle to cut if Raido power or signal lost.

You can't make one NOT cut the throttle. However, you MUST rebind after programming the TX for this to work correctly with a gas or glow model, or with one of those rare ESCs that need the throttle channel reversed.

The biggest point of confusion in programming the DX7 is that it needs to be rebound (re-binded??) several times as programming progresses. The first time is to bind it to the model number you are going to use. Then after trimming and servo installation. The most critical one is the final one and that establishes the position of all control surfaces and throttle when power is applied to the receiver and before the rx has time to acquire the tx. Set the default stick positions before turning on the tx for the last bind you intend to do and those become the default rx power up positions.
Loss of signal then causes the rx to hold the last stick positions and cut the throttle to the position at last binding.
As an aside, the BR6100 goes to the bind position of all sticks at loss of signal. That's the only difference between it and an AR6100

It does not "Cut"the throttle, the throttle will go to the position of the throttle stick at the time of the last binding. If you binded the rx to the tx with the throttle stick at full power, it will go to that setting.
So it is wiser to rebind the rx to the tx after everything is set to the proper trims.
