    Receiver failsafe

    Hi I've recently fitted a flysky receiver on my nitro buggy and after half hour of playing the failsafe kicked in and now everyone I put it to full throttle or the brake on it kicks and now I can't use it. Is there anyway of reseting the failsafe so I can use my car? Help pls

    Anyone still running a stand alone failsafe???

    Just getting back into the hobby. I just picked up a used nitro truck with a 2s 7.4v lipo receiver pack, and high voltage servos. The radio does have built in failsafe for signal loss, but not for low voltage. I would like to have the low voltage protection too... I have an old venom failsafe...

    What failsafe?

    So I currently run a 3 channel RF-40 reciever and transmitter which has a built in failsafe. Now I imagine if my hump battery goes low on charge that the fail safe wouldn't help? Is there one that might help this situation? Should I get a battery level indicator? Thx
