got a issue , first off im using a jr 8103 heli version on pcm on a nitro .30,i have it set so my throttle hold shuts the engne down,and i just use my throttle trim to hold the idle,

now, when i turn on my throttle hold switch it moves my pitch to full collective positive,i know this is also used as a mixing switch, but i have all 3 mixing menus set to inactive,or turned off, how do i fix this so when i hit throttle hold it dosnt effect pitch,im scared if i need to use this in a emergency its not going to be good,its just going too shoot it up in the air higher!or harder into the ground!!

any help is greatly appreciated

Your pitch curve in throttle hold should be the same as your normal and idle up. Your motor should idle with the throttle hold on and only shut off when you move the trim all the way down. Set you pitch up so that you have negative 6 degrees pitch at low stick with throttle hold on. With the motor idling have the throttle hold menu screen displayed on your radio and adjust the % till the motor will idle with driving the head or dieing

I once choked a smurf to see what color it would trun

Yep, it's in the T hold pitch menu. Had mine off just a bit before and the heli would climb like crazy when you hit T hold. Not so good for HS

Dude, you need to dump that 8103 and get a DX7 or 9303 DSM. It is the real deal. Maybe trade one of those quicks for one... hungh?

UUUUHHHH no! I have both and I'll tell you right now the 8103 smokes the DX7 big time in programming ability and switch configuration. I like the DX7 only for it's SS technology, in every other catagorie it is far behind the 8103. The DX7 does not even have a real throttle hold, it has to steal the rudder dual rate switch for that. I do a lot of training and I can't stand the trainer swith on the DX7 either. The 8103 is a far better radio in everything that you would want from a radio, it just does not have SS.

yea thats the only thing i dont like about it is no 2.4,but it seems to work fine, i dont have any glitching problems in pcm. can you change the modual in the transmitter to switch the 8103 over to 2.4 gig just like surface r/c car radios can do?

I've had a 8103 for about 5 years and upgraded to a 9303 mostly for the 2.4ghz and for the pleasure of buying a new toy.

Though the 8103 is a real pleasure and has plenty of functionality, the 9303 is even better. You will feel at home with the programmation as it is very similar. Only difference is the ease you will have to play in those setting since, with the bigger screen, you will see more information at the same time, you will see the menu options and will navigate through them with ease.

There are also some feature that cannot be overlooked like the delay in the throttle hold which I appreciate the most, model match and others too.

Don't get me wrong, upgrading the 8103 with a spektrum module is a very acceptable solution too. and certainly cost less than a whole new TX.
