Ever tried one on a non proportional channel?

Do you max your end points or just leave them at 100/100?

Thanks Terry!

Joe Hunt wrote:What I'm also wondering about is Tech-Aero's recommendation of failsafe engine off. One I'm not sure if the engine goes off with any small glitch or a prolonged loss of signal? And, two if it goes off with a small glitch I'm not sure I would like that in a harrier roll. ;) So, trying to decided Failsafe, or not Failsafe. I've always had this trouble with Failsafe... I've always kinda thought of it like running for a doorway in an Earthquake... basically survival in this disastrous situations is going to come down to luck, imo. Through the years the idea that I took time to set something up that might make things worse kinda has always annoyed me. haha


The way I see it, failsafe is about trying to minimize the damage to things on the ground and/or people. That being said, I probably wouldn't want the motor to shut off entirely, just in case control comes back. I set my planes up to reduce the throttle to idle in case of a lockout. If you have a failure that massive you're probably going in though.

It's my understanding that 2.4ghz radio systems don't really glitch like FM systems used to. I am curious what the failsafe delay is on the Futaba?

Probably that's the only failsafe worth doing. :?:
