What brand is it? Think it's available in the States? Or is it a UK product?

Cheaper?

1000 times CHEAPER? Man they're only $24.00 over here to begin with....

I've got one in EACH of my Nitro R/C's...I'd NEVER run without one, ever again.

I have been running the MPI, which are a little pricey. Guess Ill check out the XTM next time around.

I strongly recommend having a 5 cell hump though if your using a failsafe. Regular batteries can falsely trigger them.

Just my half cent and a beer!

Looks cool. Unfortunately I didn't find any US info on it. Doesn't look like it's carried over here. Most of the sites with info is in Europe and Asia.

Looks like I'll go with the XTM. $19 at littleshopofhobbies.com

That GWS is the EXACT same thing as the MPI I have. The guy at the LHS was telling me that they are made by the same manufacturer, just different suppliers slapping labels on them.

I wonder who makes the most inexpensive one??? Or should I say "Who distributes the same thing for the least cost?"

The MPI/GWS failsafe is supposedly the same electronics that are in the Futaba failsafes, as per the LHS.

What's the fun in that. It's more fun watching your t-maxx run out of control at full throttle towards the traffic on a busy street.
