Uh...am I missing something here? Is this a trick question? Is "don't hit the kill switch" the right answer?

That is a known issue with the 9C. It seems that the kill switch feature of the radio monitors the actual position of the stick, not the throttle curve values. I don't know of a fix other than... Why would you hit the kill switch while at full negative?

no thanks for the sarcasm, that just aggravates me more. Anyone else, is there a switch that i can null or adjust within the radio's setup? I need serious answers please.

I don't have my manual handy but in there it mentions a faq site in Futaba to fix that. If you can't find the link I can get it later if you need it

i suggest 1 of 2 things:

1 - set the switch to a different switch (althrough its upto you but depending on where you put it, it may very well spoil the idea of having it somewhere easily accessable for a quick kill)

2 - change how you hold the controller slightly, so that no finger lies ontop of the cut switch and not underneath it (in the event you need to kill you just move your finger under and push)

It doesn't matter what idle switch setting you have, If you pull the engine kill lever when the throttle stick is in a lower position than the set threshold, it will kill the engine. Read the manual.

Sorry. I just looked up the faq that I saw listed in the 9c manual for that problem. I was hoping it was a fix. Turned out to be a more sorry can't do it.

To my simple mind, a digital trimmer on the throttle is a mistake, and the kill switch is a fix for the mistake. Digital trims on the other three, analog on the throttle, I'm very happy. Suth, I've set-up a few of those backwards thinking transmitters, for beginners, by using the trimmer, and INH the kill switch. Usually, by the time you are calling for full negative, you have a pretty firm command of the switches.

Here's what i would do:
set the threshold really low, like that the kill switch can only operate on the very bottom of the stick. even 1 tiny touch above bottom and it wont work, i doubt you will have this problem again, it will only work when maxing out the stick to the bottom, and no where else.

ok im not yet a experienced flier in real heli's but from over a year of sim experience, i have discovered that i like having no threshold limit, cut available on 100% of the throttle, and they way i hold it i dont tend to slip onto it. It may come back to haunt me but for now, ill stick to no threshold

i have 9CP too.

my hand layout on controller for both hands

Thumbs (5th) on sticks,

4th finger controls A,B,C,D switches, and when i am not changing any A,B,C, or D my 4th fingers lie on top of E/G Sticks

my 3rd finger sits between E/F and G/H - neither E or G is accidentally pushed because my 4th fingers rests on top, of these switches, this also gives good control to move switch E and G, having a finger either side of switch.

fingers 2 and 1 stay well out the say underneath the controller, level with the modulator.

In the event that i need to throttle cut , i would remove my 4th finger from between Switches G and H, take it under switch H and push.

not meaning to hijack, just showing my method to prevening accidental pushing.

I don't think that there is any reason to suspect that these chaps didn't pay for their radios .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

CA your thumbs to the sticks, then you have finger 1 free for fiddling with switches.

The Kill switch is as much a SAFETY switch as it is a convenience switch. I like the idea I can kill the motor quick from any flight mode just by bottoming the collective and pulling the switch. Handy in crashes (ask me how I know).

I fly the pinch method, but the way my fingers are laced around the switches, I actually hold the switch back when resting. I have to move a finger back around the switch to pull it. That prevents accidental actuation.
