Default Question about Venom Failsafe

I am running a Jr Z9100s servo on my buggy. And I am using a venom failsafe. When I turn on the electronics for my buggy, the failsafe activates, like it should. This seems to put a tremendous strain on to the throttle servo. Is there a way to adjust that a bit? Or will this cause no problem for my servo. I would hate to burn that thing up, by using a safety device.

You should be able to trim it on the failsafe , but id recommend against using one .. Unless you have a really dodgy AM radio /..

If you have a half decent FM or 2.4 g you are better off without the fail safe ... they can be more trouble than good ..

best bet is to make sure you have all your crystals taped in and batteries secure in box and no dodgy connections .. Also when you play at the park check that you arent on same frequencies ...

Hope this helps

Cheers MM

I use a 2.4 system. So don't need a failsafe then? Cool, Thanks.

what brand 2.4 do you use? spectrum have a fail-safe built into the receiver that is set when you bind it to the transmitter.
