Because we want to create a throttle curve we select the Name field and enter “Thr” (Long press ENTER button for capital letters). Instead of the default 5 control points we select 7 to get finer control and select Smooth.

Settings for throttle curve

The slope of this curve is low in the region around x equals zero, which is where the hover point should be located. The hover point is set below y equals zero to reduce the overall output power which is also why the last point is set to 60. This curve should help beginners to find the hover point more easily.

After setting the throttle curve it is time to apply it to the throttle input on the Input page. For this use PAGE to page through to page 4 or EXIT to the main screen and short press MENU, then PAGE until you get to page 4.
