Default Throttle Curve at Tx

I have an older Rhino with an ECU that does not have a linear throttle-thrust setting.

If I have a properly setup turbine (accel, deaccel & stability delays), it is possible to create a throttle curve in the transmitter that can create problems that increases the risk of a flame out of the throttle signal moves too fast? In other words, can a throttle curve in a transmitter drives a flameout for an otherwise running well turbine, or will the ECU always drive the turbine in a way that will respect the settings mentioned above?

I want to linearize my thrust vis-a-vis the throttle stick, but for sure don't want to risk a flame-out just by doing that. The turbine is running well today, even with sudden throttle stick movements.

Thanks

If your Tx supports throttle curves... just have the RPM's come up faster than the stick. Obviously, there will be some playing around with it... but have it give you 50% RPM at 25% stick... 75% RPM at 50% stick... and just smooth out the curve from there. The only drawback is that the throttle may be sensitive for taxi.

Thanks Tony.
Im just wondering if i can cause a flame out, due to too fast acceleration, just by messing with the curve in the TX.

Hello Edgar
No problema with the Tx curves, the ECU will handle the acceleration rate and your curve will only be changing the RPMs at diferent throtle positions

I did just that with my older Rhinos. Use the manual to determine how many rpms is half of the thrust, then put a curve in the transmitter so half stick gives you the desired rpm
