Default How to set up an electric motor kill switch using a Futaba 14SG

I have a Great Planes Revolver aircraft powered with a Hacker electric motor. The RC system used to operate it is a Futaba 14SG. I had read that it is possible to set up a function whereby a switch can be setup so as to function as a motor on/off control for safety. In other words with that switch on, the engine is not powered but when it is off then power is available.

Can someone advise on this and if so, run through a step by step process on exactly how to set that up. I had read somewhere that through the linkage set of functions on the transmitter you can reset the THR mode to a motor mode which is then set for electric engines. However I have not been able to do this.

Thanking anyone for their assistance!!
