Default How to set different TH % to 3 position switch on 14SG?

I'm trying to program my three position TH switch (switch SG) so that the first "on" position (first click up from normal) sets the throttle to 30%, and the second position (second click up), sets it to 0. I want to do this to use the autorotation bailout feature of my Kosmik ESC. I.e., pull the switch once to start the auto, then pull to the third position when on the ground to protect against fast spoolup. I can't seem to do this via the TH menu. Any suggestions?

Set Throttle Hold to switch SG with a switch setting of OFF/ON/OFF.
Set Throttle Kill to switch SG with a switch setting of OFF/OFF/ON.

Set your hold and kill positions to a percentage that get the desired results from your Kosmik.

Myself I use SG for TH Hold and SB for TH Kill. This way two switches protect from accidental spoolup.

Thanks, I had a chance today to program my 14 SG per your instructions and it works. I also decided that your using another switch to separately engage the Throttle Cut is a good idea because putting the cut on the third position of the TH (SG Switch) raises the risk that I might, when initiating the Auto Bailout, accidentally pull the SG switch to the third position and cut the throttle completely- meaning that if I try to Bailout, I'm back to a slow start. So I set the TH to Off, On, On; and I'm using the SA as the Kill with a setting of Off, Off, On.

I programmed it differently because getting the switch in the middle position is a little difficult.

I have assigned another switch and when that's engaged thr hold will be 30% in stead of 0. Much easier to manage and perfectly safe with the kosmik since the bailout doesn't keep the motor spinning like some external govs (cheat auto's)
