I've done some searching and am having a hard time locating anything, I was hoping someone here might know. On the DX3 controller, there is a 3 position switch to select 50, 75 or 100% throttle. Is there a way to do something like that on the DX5? I've set up the throttle trim but man it takes a lot of clicks if I want to go down to 50% for example. I was hoping to have something simple to select some pre-programmed values.

Thanks!

I have not found a shortcut to do this quickly. You could create more profiles that have the throttle set at the different levels...but thinking about it just as much work.

It sounds like there is a way I could use one of the switches to do like 75 and 100% but haven't figured it out yet.
If you do pass it along. There has never been a good tutorial from Spektrum on the radio...

On my DX5 Pro I setup 2 different driver profiles for me and my toddler. I Just click the "D" button near the steering wheel and it toggles to the next driver profile. Each driver profile has different trims like 10% throttle for the little boy.

This video give you an idea of what to do. If I can explain any further let me know
