@bladecrasher try putting your TH line at the bottom if the mix, not the top. And donít forget to make it a Replace like the rest.

if you're going to use 4 lines on the ch3 mix page, you don't need to use curves since you're essentially using 4 straight line curves that just replace the switch value for the proper single value the flight controller uses. if you want to do that, instead of 4 curves, use MAX with the range set to 0 and the offset set to the value you want out of the throttle channel. if you want to use a 2 line mix, do what i did in my oxy2.otx file which is one 3 point curve with the three points set to the specific three throttle values you want and a second mix line that replaces the throttle value with -100 when the hold switch is in the hold position.

i know what you have will work, but it helps to think forward to when you may need to read the program and modify it so you really want the simplest, most straight forward program possible and that usually means fewer lines, nor more.

Will try this, but I thought I read the lines are evaluated from the top down which would mean the hold SH would never be evaluated since switch SA is always in one of the three possible locations.

Thanks for the link to your otx file and explanation of the three point curve. I got confused on that last night when the three points were the default values, but now I think I understand. My points will be @ 30,70,100 for the HS settings in the Talon.

Yes but your 30,70,100 seems to indicate that negative values on that channel will have no effect? I think what you're looking for is 30% 70% and 100% which would translate to channel values of -40, 40, and 100.

Using the "KISS" mode of thinking, where the Talon requires a GovStore setting at a 30%, 70% or 100% flat curve.

Eventually, I need to adjust for the fact that 30 is really -40, per the 30 x 2 - 100 calculation.

It would be nice to be able to retain the 30,70,100 in the Curve or Mix area so it helps me remember what is what.

To get the actual 30% for example though when it leaves the Output area, I need to adjust something, which I'm thinking might be the Output (end-points) or Min/Max values. I need to "Invert" two channels in Output also.

I can see what Throttle channel is sending by having the Spirit FBL unit in setup mode and visually check what the Throttle channel is showing at the 3 curve positions.

Should this work or am I still confused?
