Default Spektrum DX6i Throttle Cut Switch

Did not see this thread for planes. Has anyone swapped the throttle cut button for a switch on the dx6i ? Any issues ? I think I will do it when the warrantee runs out.

Interesting idea. Never thought of it, but now i'm on the 8, and the 6i is relegated to sim and trainee duties.

Also, I thought the warranty never runs out on Spektrums!

I've done it. It works very well. I handed the radio down to my dad or I'd post photos but it's pretty simple.

Not familiar with the DX6i and its throttle cut switch.

As for me, I've programmed the gear switch as a throttle cut function on my DX8, and did the same with my DX7. It's a lot more work with the DX7.

With the larger models, that throttle cut switch is almost a requirement for safety's sake.
