Question P. Mix for throttle channel

Hi.

I'm playing arround with the 18'mz p.mix, but can't seem to work this one out.

What I want is to overrule the throttle channel by a switch, and set the positions.

Eg:
Switch C up: Mix inactive, throttle follows the throttle curve
Switch C mid: Throttle output +40% no matter what the throttle curve says
Switch C down: Throttle output +100% no matter what the throttle curve says

I've found this vid showing the 7C, and it seems he makes a throttle hold for acro, using a P. Mix. All I want to do, is add my desired throttle position related to switch position: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Btdglv4qUnE[/ame]

No matter what settings I use in the P. Mix or Offset mixing, the settings/curve is added to the current throttle curve output, but I want to overrule it.

Has anyone found a way to do this ?

Default I have the throttle on a switch

Are you trying to use the C switch to disable the stick when you set the switch? Seems like something you would do by setting a custom condition. I have my throttle with 3 different curves setup on a switch but didn't think about using a condition to move from stick to switch. Is that what you are trying to do?

Hi, and thank you for your reply.

Yes, that could be a solution.

Hoped to be able to use a mix for this, but will try the condition solution you suggested, and a logical switch to choose condition.

Default conditions

Yes, I ungrouped my throttle and created a custom curve for each switch position. I haven't tried but I think if you can select the switch and the "on" position for each curve then why can't you select a different switch (the stick) for one of the throttle curves.

Not sure if this is possible with my DX4e???

Ok, i've managed to set it up using separete conditions and logical switches.

Think it's the second best solution, cause I need one condition per Gov setting.

Hoped to have a p. mix. override the throttle output. Then I didn't need that many conditions (Norm, Idle 1, Idle 2, Gov 1, Gov 2, Gov 3, Hold)
