I tried using hair bands like some people suggest but I must have 1 strong servo because I have like 10 of those suckers on their and my servo doesn't budge(with no power), I guess it would help if the linkage popped somehow but that's about it.

When a receiver jumps into fail safe it is using power it has to he has an 2.4G

yea im not getting what he is saying only way im seeing it is that his throotle is pulling with the tension of the spring trying to pull it back. but were talking about loss of power to servo. i dont know what kind of servos he is running but i know my servos one band will bring it back but i always put 2 or 3 on incase one breaks from heat and with bands you dont have the tension on the servo like the spring. and these arnt the big colord bands there just little tiny rubber bands kinda like the ones for braces.

On the 3pm, if you are running in normal (non digital) mode for standard servos you must set the failsafe everytime you power up the remote. If you are running in HRS (for digital servos) mode you can "set it and forget it".

I didn't have bands ... Not sure if it would have helped ... But you better bet if I can get another I will do that...

Thats just not true with todays good servos. I use a relatively light spring and with the throttle wide open I can turn the radio switch to off and it goes right back to idle position.

We use hair bands. You only want enough to close the carb with the servo disconnected. Putting to many on it puts stress on the barrel of the carb and can cause binding. A TL team driver gave us the heads up.
