Default Futaba Experts Needed: How to mix throttle & steering Inversely.

How do I program Futaba (4PX or 7PX) so that the steering throw is lessened as throttle is increased? I want the steering to be 100% at zero-throttle and decrease to 50% at full-throttle.



Thanks!

I would try Program Mixing as it seems the only function which should fit your req. I has never tried this but it looks like the way to go.
Master Throttle and slave Steering I guess

You'd think it would be obvious, right? Believe it or not, I think thats the one thing you can't do with program mixing.

I'm running larger, fast boats. I dont want to be able to steer too hard and flip them at high speed. Should be useful for cars too though

Maybe an idea do use a RPi with a GPS sensor to control the boat without any input of your fingers?
I think this is a part of your fingers to do that and to be honest, I will be confused with a changing D/R

You'll need to be careful. If you're turning while on throttle and then release throttle, you're suddenly going to get a lot more steering.
