APP settings for Motor Position and RPM control with PPM

Hey,

I am using VESC paired with an electric motor in order to control a propeller that will be implemented in a small aircraft.

I am wondering if it is possible to have some type of set up or configuration using PPM or other type of control APP, that allows for controlling the position of the motor.

Let me explain, I want the propeller to be in a certain fixed position so when the aircraft lands it does not damage the propeller with the ground, currently I am controlling the propeller with PPM control but I can only control the duty cycle not the position.

Is there any way in which the motor can go to a fixed position when it does not receive any input? Or a small input lower than 10% for example? Is this impossible with PPM and should I use another control APP?

 

Many thanks in advance.
