Default DX9 idle down?

Does the DX9 have an idle down function I can assign to a switch to use when I taxi back to the pits? Can't find it in the manual.
Thanks,
Sam

You would do that with a throttle curve.

a mix on a switch was my approach.

"Idle down" is top-end throttle limiting, not setting a fixed throttle. The throttle still works, but it only goes so high. Germans have been asking for us to add it to the radios for a long time.

Throttle Curves do this nicely. A mix doesn't.

I switched from Futaba. Idle down allowed me to flip a switch and my idle would drop to a lower setting. I didn't think of it as throttle limiting as you mentioned. You are saying throttle curve does the same thing?

That's a head scratcher
"Idle down" refers to limiting high throttle ?
I would have called it throttle limiting .

For lower idle throttle just trim down. Throttle trim only works on the low side of travel.

You know how meanings sometimes don't always come through from other languages?

Ok here's the fix. I used a mix and set it to the throttle on the "H" switch. Now it works just like my futaba radio for the idle up/down however you want to set it.
throttle curve does not work for the idle up/down. Throttle curve only changes the linear action of the throttle curve. Not the limits of the throttle.

For throttle curve, you would have moved the bottom left corner upwards in the places where you wanted throttle low-end limited. In the curves where you wanted it farther down, you'd have left it there.

The mix works for you, so that's good. Enjoy!
