throttle hold is supposed to be setup to kill the motor. 0% power
No throttle hold is supposed to take the throttle to idle when you flip the switch not kill the engine.
Throttle trim or cut is supposed to kill the engine when you pull the trim all the way down or push the throttle cut button while at idle with the throttle hold switch off.

LjCraft12 setting up a heli right is a little difficult at first. Trying to understand how to program the transmitter, setting the pitch and getting the head-speed right is hard by your self also. You really need to find somebody that understands the process that you can get with that is willing to help you. It will really smooth out your learning curve and make the experience way more enjoyable and a lot less expensive.
If you are just trying to learn to hover you really need to inhibit Idle up 1 AKA stunt 1 and also inhibit Idle up 2 AKA stunt 2 and just use your normal position to hover and do figure 8s.
Your head-speed needs to be around 1,500 rpm and you really can't set that by a throttle curve alone unless you know what that sounds like that will come with experience. You need to have someone tach your head while you are in a hover then adjust your throttle curve to give you 1,500 in a hover. you need to have your pitch set up right first that's done on the bench. Find a flying field with other heli fliers or somebody willing to get with you on a 1 on 1 deal.

Well then your are doing something wrong also. If you read the raptor manual it clearly states.
1550 for normal hover
it also states beginners should inhibit Idle up 1 and 2
I don't set my normal for 1550 either but I can do 3d.
He clearly said he could hover but his landings were rough so he needs to set it up for a beginner and that is 1550 head speed per raptor recommendations.
Read your book rokiehelli 1983

yeah I wouldn't trust myself hovering and letting someone tach my head I am all over the place now. Anyways hovering I am getting but yeah like i said landing trust me a rock falls softer than what I do. Okay I will get rid of the stunt modes and fly with full stick control which ever one ya'll think I should learn first.

LMAO yea I know exactly what you mean been there that's really why you need to get some local 1on1 help if you can it makes it a lot easier to learn. They can help you set it up nice and soft and slow.
Most heli pilots love to help anyway. Do you know if there is a field near you? If you don't know ask at the hobby shop if they don't know hang out till someone shows up asking for heli parts and just ask them for some help getting setup for a beginner I'm sure anybody will be willing to help. If you don't find anybody,try this web site I will pm you the link it's great for all your raptor needs
