Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

To Ratchet or not To Ratchet? That is the question

Thought it may be interesting to see how many prefer a ratchet throttle or not.

I love that throttle ratchet goodness
4 (30.8%)
I like it smooth like a smooth thing
8 (61.5%)
I didn't even consider changing it till now :-)
1 (7.7%)

I use a ratchet at the mo, but as I';m having difficulty maintaining a set height even with the PID settings altered.  My concern is that I';ll be moving the throttle up and down as I yaw left and right.  Oh well


I like it for fixed wing and even more so because I fly mode 1, just feels right!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


I fly planks, helis and multi';s and have just got used to no ratchet for everything.

I think with models that are reliant on a given stick position for altitude you can find that the position the ratchet stops the throttle or pitch may not be ideal to maintain a given height.

You could try adding a little expo if you find yourself moving the throttle when yawing, that may be more beneficial than using the ratchet.


I ditched the ratchet years ago it never sits in the right position when hovering and is just a pain in the throttle  :rolleyes:  ~~


Its the first thing I do when I get a new transmitter, remove the ratchet.
Not found a way to get rid of it totally on the aurora 9 but managed to get it a lot less than when it was new.
