I was considering either a Futaba 8J or 10J but I see they no longer have the levers! This was definitely a feature I wanted and thus my reasoning for the OP. Kinda tuff to consider another brand as I've always owned Futaba!

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

I setup as Dr.Ben explained earlier in the post for curves. To adjust I use the knobs on the face of the radio. I did try the ratchet on the side/back but I found it too easy to bump and would many times sit in a spot that bothered my hands. So I moved it to the knobs on the front.
Also the 14SG, 18SZ, and 18MZ have the ratchets you prefer still.

I still have the JR9303.. the levers are not "just trim switches", they are full fledged channel controllers. You could program and use them like any other channel controller.

I don't know why anyone would remove the ratchet from these channels. Too easy to move as is.

Hahaha most of the people posting are talking about the throttle/ collective stick and not the ratcheted trim levers that you were really referring to.

Anyway, to answer your question, I'm not using mine on my newer setup. I just inhibited the levers. I did use to have them active on my old 14MZ. One side was for hovering pitch, the other was hovering throttle. Was quite useful for fine tuning headspeed for F3C hovering specially when environmental conditions were variable. Additionaly, I had carburetor in flight mixture control on one of these levers then transferred hovering pitch and throttle to the two outer knobs on the front of the Tx.
