Default 10C Program high Throttle Idle with Gear Up

When my gear (activated by switch) is in up position, I'd like to limit my low throttle travel to some value above idle to prevent flameout during manuvers. Need all other throttle programming (ie: throttle curve, full throttle end point) to remain the same regardless of gear position. What is the easiest way to program this on the 10C? It just ocurred to me that maybe I could assign a throttle dual rate to the gear switch and have the high throttle settings the same in both high and low rate. But how would my throttle curve be affected during the "low rate" gear up situation?

Am I looking at the best way to acheive this? Thank you

Default RE: 10C Program high Throttle Idle with Gear Up

Use the Idle Down function and set it to turn on when the gear is lowered. You can select the gear switch. The Idle Down function is described on page 40 of the instruction manual. Of course, if you need a higher idle setting for starting, then put the Idle Down function on its own switch, and just select it when ready to land.
