How to add drag to the Radian

The Radian has no drag devices but you can use the prop to add drag. Go into your DX6,7,8,9.....TX throttle curve menu and change the straight line points to a lower slope. Turn the curve to on and change point 2 to 5%, point 3 to 10% point 4 to 25%. You will not see a curve but adjust the points so that at half throttle the prop just starts to turn. In flight when you might not be able to see the prop turning move the throttle stick to the halfway point and you will be in the area where the prop just starts to turn. You will be providing windmilling thrust which is actually drag. Make sure to close the throttle just befor touchdown to avoid a prop strike.
