I keep mine simple .... BRAKE on when throttle is idle - no need for trim use.

As soon as throttle clicks a notch - the motor just gets that kick to try to start, prop unfolds - (just because BRAKE is off ... the prop will often NOT unfold without a kick or blip of motor from throttle ...)

I fly ASK 21 with folding prop and I need to give a blip of throttle to get it to unfold and spin ... otherwise it just lays back still.

Many guys I know with powered gliders and folders actually don't even put motor on the throttle stick ... they put motor on a ON - OFF switch ...
