Throttle hold for an electric heli, just ensures that the motor is not able to start even if the throttle stick is moved.
Its a nescessity, not an option.
Imagine leaning over the head of your heli to look at something before takeoff, you have a neck strap on to clip to your radio, you accidently bump the throttle stick up, now the strap is caught in the rotors and your head is on its way lol.
Seriously, set it up.
If you are not confident in doing it, take the main blades and tail blades off FIRST, to make sure that nothing bad happens when you test throttle hold.
The programme mix should be assigned to a particular swith on your radio. You switch it on, throttle no longer works, safe to carry to your landing patch, or just for a quick inspection before liftoff.
Also, if your going to ditch, flick throttle hold on.
It WILL save you a lot more money.
If you go in hard and failed to switch it on, well then your doin what we all call "the funky chicken", as your heli thrashes around on the ground.
Feel free to ask ANY questions you may have. I'll answer them as best I can.
Just remember "there is no such thing as a stupid question if you genuinely do not know, and need to know the answer".
