I had a 3D yak setup with idle on the throttle trim and a switch to activate a mix to pull it closed.

I was at a big 3D event with people lined up 3 deep at each flight station to fly and my throttle linkage went at maybe 1/3 throttle. I flew in circles for nearly 40 minutes waiting for it to run out of gas and dead stick while getting glared at from everyone waiting to fly. I get my balls busted about it to this day.

After that, electronic kill switches in all my gas engine setups, now mostly Tech Aero IBEC's
