X9503 programming throttle kill/cut


Can someone please tell me how to program one of my switches for throttle kill? Basically, what's the easiest way to do this. I'm overwhelmed by the JR programming and I just want to set up a switch (probably the mix lever) to be able to kill the throttle (all my planes are electric) so an inadvertent throttle bump doesn't spin up the prop. Any help would be awesome. Thanks in advance.

I use mix 6. #THR >THRO. Pos 0 at 0%, 0%, Pos 1 at -100%, -100%. Offset -174. Mix switch to Pos1 all others to Pos 0.

With this if you pull the top rear switch you get throttle hold.

When I first got my radio I did this and copied it to every model memory.

Does this look right?



Is there any reason you have to use mix 6? And just for my knowledge, what is the offset? Thanks.

I also noticed that mix 1 is defaulted as thro-thro....i had always tried that. Ill shut up and wait for someone to tell me what i did wrong. Ill have to actually test this later.

You want #Thr to Thro mix, #thr is the throttle position no matter the ATV or other settings. Your way may work too though, look at the monitor screen.

So this?



I went to the monitor screen and hit the lever and began advancing the throttle. It was bottomed out until the third white mark on the throttle stick pass3d the middle line and then the throttle began advancing. At full throttle, with the lever in pos1, the monitor showed throttle right in the middle. Is this correct?

Just checked my 9503. My programming looks the same as your screen shot. Only minor differences. My offset is at -172 and I happen to use Mix 3.
When my Mix switch is activated the throttle on the monitor screen doesn't move at any throttle setting.
Do you have another mix that could be interfering?

I cant imagine whats wrong. I hooked up a battery and tried it and just like the monitor, it kicks the throttle on at the same spot....why am I having so many issues with this??? It seems like it should be straightforward. Its on my combat wing and I didnt do any esc programming or anything...could that be it? I havent tried it on another model just yet.

Throttle trim at the mid point? It has to be another mix somewhere.

This was going to be my next suggestion.

One thing I have noticed programming my DX7 and 9503. Make sure the throttle disable mix is the last mix.

I was setting up some mixes for throttle differential on a twin and added them after the disable mix. When engaged the differential mix would over ride the disable mix.

If you have another plane. Try the mix on another model memory. It does work.
