I am sure you read the manual Omar, utherwise you would not have been able to bind your radio to reciever. Remeber when you held full brake when you bound them? That's your failsafe...unfortunately if your receiver takes a dump or your battery dies, you get no failsafe, then comes the throttle return spring

yeah I think so!

It is simple. When you bind the radio and reciever, hold the functions(steering wheel and throttle) to the desired position of the failsafe. IE if you hold the trigger to full brake while you bind it, your failsafe will be full brake. I personally set mine to neutral. I have seen too many throttle servos burnt out because someone forgot to turn thier car off and the failsafe held full brake.

You should also use some type of throttle return spring. Most quality servos are smooth enouth that a return spring or small rubberbands will pull it closed when there is no power on the servo.

I had first hand experience last week with my M11 (spektrum installed failsafe set up correctly) running away from me. I am running a lipo batt with regulator. It went from working to dead as a door nail. I had installed a different engine and didn't bother to put on a throttle return spring. Luckily I was coming off the throttle setting up for a turn but it still wasn't at idle, at least it wasn't moving to fast so my pit guy was able to catch it.

Long story short I have return spring back on the car.

Jammin just summed up what I was too lazy to type.
