Default throttle lock on exceed wk-0701 tx

Is there a way to program a throttle lock on the wk-0701 transmitter? I have a problem with changing throttle position when I am making tail rotor corrections when flying. Should I just hone this skill or is there a way to lock the throttle while hovering?

If I remember correctly the transmitter don't have that function. Practice makes perfect, try to practice manually locking the throttle.

Why would you? Adding rudder opposite the torque takes some power from the main rotors so you need to add throttle to maintain a hover, conversely allowing it to rotate with torque requires less and the helicopter will rise.

In short, its part of flying a helicopter.
