should I get one of those return springs then?

is the RPM (Ram Servo Fail Safe LXDZ59) one i posted above a good failsafe unit???

would it move the throttle servo to the braking postion(if set right) if it lost all connections with the reciever?

Im pretty sure that the failsafe lets you know when power is low, it does this by applying the brakes on and off when the system is on.

Thanks,

You can use things that you have at home I have found that rubber bands work perfectly for me I just use 2 rubber bands instead of 1, I am sure some ppl here on this forum also use them.
