    Do you need throttle trim ?

    Do you need throttle trim on your transmitter or does it just complicate the setup ?
    After watching a flyer screw up a setup with a heli, I started to wonder if it is easier to
    inhibit the throttle trim.
    The throws are set using the servo travel for full throttle range.
    Mechanically set for mid throttle - mid stick. The throttle curve can be displaced for
    adjusting idle speed.
    Hold speed is set on throttle hold and cut is also radio set.
    Do I need throttle trim ? Don't use it when I fly !

    RE: Do you need throttle trim ?

    Some folks use it to adjust the idle, and it only effects the lower portion of throttle range, it doesn't effect centering.

    Also, in normal mode I usuall crank in a bit of throttle trim for a higher idle to keep the engine from going all the way back to idle during descents

    Some use throttle trim as an engine shut off
    and if your flying electric not needed at all
