The version of the code we'll release later this week has altitude hold. That should handle this for you.
You have an ACRO transmitter with a ratchet. You may want to see if you can remove the indent on the spring or get a replacement spring. That way you will be able to adjust the throttle to any position.
@Ed, would I need to buy any parts? Or is it just about getting inside the transmitter and removing the indent?
On my Futaba, I adjusted my throttle response curve so that is wasn't so over-sensitive in the middle. In other words, I flattened out the steepness of the response curve. This gave me more notches in the middle. This may sound complicated, but it's easy to do on the Futaba. Of course, this method doesn't guarantee an automatic perfect hover (like it sounds like altitude hold will), but it made it easier for me to achieve a hover manually. For me, it also made my machine generally more controllable (I was having trouble either going up way too fast or down way too fast).
@Robert. What settings did you change in the futaba menu? And what values did you set?
I'm pretty sure you can take off the ratchet. My 7c has no throttle detents.
Ok. I just wanted to make sure parts weren't going to fly out if I opened it. Sometimes its hard to get things back together right once they are apart lol.
been-there-done-that so I know what you mean :)
U should be ok on that unit, but use caution on wire pinching etc on reclosure... I once ran a wire too close to the on-off switch on a spektrum and the darn thing would power down/up on a slight tap of the case... took awhile to figure that one out lol
