Model setup, go down to T2thtrig, set it to ON. This is T(imer)2th(rottle)trig(ger).

Now starts the timer as required but not stop. Where can I set the timer stops by throttle at 0 and only continues to run again when the throttle goes on.
A linear stopwatch for the motor period.

The second timer does that.*the one under the model name on the right* (ths is the trigger I use to stay on with throttle, or off when throttle is off)
The main timer times total flight from throttle up.*the one on the bottom middle) (at least on mine that's the way I like it)

Funny how things work out, Leo's "main timer" is actually timer 2, I've always thought of the other timer (timer 1) as the main timer.
The timer in the middle at the bottom is the second timer implemented, so is called timer 2. It was added to all for total flight time to be monitored.
The original timer (timer 1) at the right has many more trigger options, including a variable seed option that depends on the throttle position, so can be set to run at full speed at full throttle, and stop at zero throttle.

In er9x, Timer1 may be triggered that way, select TRNm as the trigger.
