Good morning.
Has any one had aproblem with setting up ''Throttle Hold'' on a Futaba FF8. Mine does not seem to work unless i am missing something. Can only switch from ''Inhibit'' to ''Off'' and will not select the ''On'' position.Have tried allsorts to try to correct but no luck , aflying buddy seems to think there was a problem with this when the Radio first came out.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When you switch it from INHIBIT to OFF via the radio, that's enabled the function. It will go to ON when you switch the throttle hold switch.

I've not used a FF8 for a year or two, and I can't remember if you can program what switch is used for throttle hold.

You also need to go to the advanced menu to set the throttle hold pitch and throttle curves.

Once you've gone from "INH" to "OFF", then set the percentages of throttle that will be given when the switch is activated, and no, I don't think you can change the switch it is on. It should turn on when the G switch it used.

Ninjak2k is right Bristolflyer, set from INH to OFF then change percentage settings and switch G will operate throttle hold. Watch for the bar under MIX flashing when active.
