The logical switch approach is sound but, just to be clear, with The Jeti implementation of Throttle Cut, it isn't needed. With the throttle cut enabled, no amount of panic switches, mixes or whatever will cause the motor to run because the Throttle cut is applied to the throttle channel of the transmitted signal rather than to the throttle stick.

Ditto for OpenTX. You can use the Special Function Overide Channel n where n is the throttle channel. This applies directly to the output.

However Logical Switches add the additional capability of conditional operation.

So you can have a throttle override that can only be disengaged IF the throttle stick is at zero AND the throttle cut is off (throttle channel zero) AND the transmitter annouces "Up, up and away!" just as an example.

question,, how well does the guardian handle wind/gusts?
lately there has been about 15 mph wind here, and its driving me crazy.

thanks...

edit:
found out it has the same stabilizing technoligy as the vector, so i was wondering wich modes in the vector is the same as the guardian?
vector "2DH" = guardian " 2D flight mode"
vector "3DH" = guardian "3D Heading Lock"
vector "Gyro" = guardian "3D Gyro"

is that correct?

I use Futaba 7-C and have a mix set up to disable the throttle with one switch. Google search and you can find it. If not and you want it, I will see if I can find the info.

The vector seems to be the Guardian (literally) with a few additions. I was in a Vector menu the other day and its title on the OSD was "Guardian" something or other. Same code base, makes sense.

You should be fine with that wind speed. If the air is "bumpy" you may get knocked about a bit but the Guardian will handle it for you.

Yes, I thought I was using all my switched, then realized switch D was unoccupied. Set P-MIX 1 to apply an offset of -100 to channel 3, I just need to test it. Of course, I won't get the 'throttle cut' warning on power on.

That's basically correct. The algorithms are a bit different but both work fine and the 2D modes are more like:

Vector 2D = Guardian 2D (V 2DH has altitude hold which the G doesn't)

All the modes work very well for wind turbulence.

Thats why I got the Gs for my smaller planes. I can fly ultra-light planes (150 gr at 700 mm wingspan) in those gusts with a lot of fun. Its actually increasing my flyable hours by factor 3 - at least. My only reason to wait for calm days is maidens.
