If it's a real oh crap moment, I always end up knocking a trim tab or two and the rudder dual rate switchHeli-itis sufferer.

I try keep my finger on that switch at all times. Just like this.

And I keep the fuel tubeing on their so if my finger slips off I can feel my way back with out looking down.

My "normal" mode is 0-0-0-0-0 so I effectively have two throttle holds. One on each side of the tx . I usually hit both!!!Team MikadoUSA 480XXTreme, 550SX, 600SX, 700XXTreme, 800XXTreme!!

WE could keep 0-0-0-0-0 on all flight modes and we won't have to worry about a crash.

My problem with that statement is that the TH switch activates forward and the normal curve activates back. Not enough time to think that way. Most of the time I end up pulling all the switches on the top of the transmitter forward.

I came over from flying fixed wing rc so unfortunately the few times i knew i was going in i instinctively chopped the collective (this is throttle only on planes) to the bottom forcing it in harder:-( I usually remember throttle hold a millisecond later!

I think maybe it's my stupidity that takes over.

I flew my Logo into the trees on Labor day, and hit TH when everyone in the pits yelled...Throttle Hold...
got away lucky though, less than $100.
