Default Fail safe recommendations?

How do I choose a fail safe device for a TC3:

Venom
Futaba
XTM
Badhorsie
Ofna...

Thanks for any advice!

Failsafes are generally for gas vehicles. Not sure I have ever seen one in an electric car. My philosophy is if you need a fail safe, you should have bought a better radio.

a failsafe will return a servo to a selected position(so the brakes are on) so i dont think it would work with a speedo
