Throttle lockout on Futaba 7c 2.4??

I'm really liking my new 7C 2.4 system but miss the throttle lock button from my Optic 6, does anyone know of a way to program a switch to accomplish the same function? I fly electric planes and like the fact that I can lock the throttle until I'm ready to take off at the flight line.

I had the same concern with my new Sprectrum 2 years ago(also liked the Optic 6 trottle lock))
1 solution, I mixed trottle and gear, so that to lock out the trottle was with the gear switch
2 solution, In heli mode(even that I dont fly heli) I used the throttle hold, just set the hold to the point where the motor stops
3 When I fly Gas I use this function ( truttle hold) to set the high idle vhen I start, and have the safety of the truttle is locked when I cary my plane to the field( no taxing in the pit)
