Incorrect. This model is designed to reduce when you let go as a safety feature. A rather irritating one at that!

Fair enough; I stand corrected.

So it's designed like that rather than, like a Cessna throttle, drifting back under its own weight unless you tighten up the friction when climbing... It does sound irritating. What sort of mechanism pulls it back?

I'll revise my previous thoughts to "it should stay where you put it, notwithstanding a strange abandonment of precedent on the part of the designer"!
