Which is the better prefered way to setting throttle?

1. Adjust the mechanical linkages so that bottom stick puts the carb in an idle position.

2. Adjust the mechanical linkages so that bottom stick closes the carb completly and then use sub trim to set your idle position.

3. Adjust the mechanical linkages so that bottom stick closes the carb completly and then set the throttle curve point 1 to be your idle position.


I want to keep a linear throttle if possible. Which one above is the best to use to maintain a linear throttle? I'm making sure my top and bottom ATV's are the same and that my linkage is 90 degrees at half stick.

Thanks for the help.

I was told that the best method is to first set throttle trims to 0 and ATV to 100%....then set the throttle barrel at the mid point, then center the throttle stick. Place the servo arm on the servo so that it is parrallel to the throttle arm. This will give you the most linear throttle geometry. All you have to do then is adjust the ATVs so there is no binding. Both the high and low ATV should be about equal. On my website, one of the links goes to another site that explains the theory behind throttle geometry very well. I just cant remember which one.

Thanks for the reply. I'm basically doing what you have pointed out. I got the tip out of Ray's manual. However, I need to know that with adjusting your ATV's, did you set it up for fully closed and fully open and then use trim to set idle or did you set your ATV bottom point to be idle? Can you give me a link to your site. The one you supplied doesn't seem to have any tips, just talks about the parts you make which look very nice btw. Thanks for the help.

The bottom ATV should close the barrel. Then use the trim on the face of the radio to set idle. Otherwise, you wont be able to shut off the engine.

I've been using Throttle cut to kill the engine. Thanks for the advise. I'll set it up so that I'm fully closed/fully opened on the ATV's and will either use trim or just set my throttle curve so that first point is idle. Thanks!
