I am trying to figure out how to start and stop the timer using the throttle hold switch. Is it possible?

I have been using the 9303, and used the timer switch. Now that I have the 9503, I thought that the throttle stick would start/stop the count down. Not sure if I am doing it correctly, but for me – the timer would start with the throttle stick, but when I activate throttle hold, the timer does not stop.

Is there any way I can program it so then the throttle hold switch does the timer ON/OFF?

Look forward to your feedback … cheers, Khan

I'm not sure about the X9503 but the 12X that I have has the same problem. I like to activate the timer switch with the throttle hold. Jr's switch scheme only allows the switches to be off when they are pushed forward and on when they are pulled forward. SO....when I activate the throttle hold, the timer comes on, and when I deactivate it, the timer stops.

I e-mailed Horizon about this and got a half baked response stating they didn't know why I would want to do this and that most people just used the throttle start stop feature. Wow. What a response.

I would expect the X9503 is probably the same as my EXPENSIVE 12X that can't even get the timer correct!

Why use lighter fluid when gasoline works sooo much better! | http://www.newportnewsrc.org/

the reason i had asked if folks over here has figured out how to do the throttle hold to timer on/off control.

the way i fly my heli is have full throttle (governor mode) on stunt 1 or 2, pitch curve in both the stunt 1 or 2 would be exactly the same - to make life easier.

i would be on either stunt 1 or 2 (regardless of throttle/pitch stick position), and just release the throttle hold to spool up. and after flying, hit the throttle hold again. sometimes i might do some auto rotations - so, then the timer should stop since during autos, motor is not turning the blades... so, it is kind of important to have the timer tied to throttle hold, and it would be nice if it could be used to program it in

cheers, khan

It's why Futaba radios are so much better. You can do anything.

I own a X9503 and a 12Z. I wish the X9503 was an 8FG, but I also wish that Futaba had an AR7100R equivelant. I work around the crappy JR programming so I can use the 4-in-1 AR7100R. Oh well.

FWIW... on the 12Z (and I think the 8FG) I can can set ANYTHING (including the sticks) to START, STOP, and/or RESET. You can also set which position of the switch, or at what point in the stick travel, an item activates. So... you could have:

START: Thottle Hold Off + Stick above 1/2
STOP: Throttle Hold
RESET: Anything

When the stick goes above 1/2 once with the throttle hold off it would start, but then you could move the stick back ot low for 3D and it wouldn't stop. When you hit throttle hold it would stop it. When you turn off throttle hold it would stay stopped until you go above 1/2 stick again. Pretty slick, eh?

This would do what you are looking for.

through the years i have owned both Futaba and JR (along with MRC, Kraft), let us not turn this into JR vs. Futaba post

i am just trying to see different ways to turn the timer on/off

Well... on mine you can turn it on with the switch or the stick, but the only way to stop it is the button on the face of the TX... let me know if you can find a better way because I would like one too... I don't do autos with my electics except for the final landing for this reason... too hard to track the battery.

yup, quite difficult to do it. i got in the habit of first, turning the Timer ON. then take the throttle hold off (the radio is already on Stunt 1 or 2 at this point). and then fly until i hear the beeper. when i hear the warning beep, i just go up and do an auto - maybe couple of them.

so, even if i can not use the throttle hold for timer on/off - it would not be a big deal for me. BUT, i just wish someone would figure it out

cheers,khan

I do not think this feature is programmable. You probably need to wait for the next generation JR radio x9703
