I am not a programmer, but I ran a search for "throttle_slew_limit" through all APM-files and noticed it is not used in the code. This explains, why it didnt work :)
Then I downloaded the ArduPilot-software to check and noticed that in the…"

wolfgang replied to Erik Hatch's discussion Autopilot Process
"Hi Erik,

Yes, you fly your airplane with your transmitter, switch to AUTO and the plane will fly to the waypoints previously programmed. When it is done, it will return to where you started (where you got GPS lock) and circle around that position…"

"Hi Patrick,

not sure, if you are still waiting for an answer, but here i go anyway :)
