The following 2 questions match the keyword 2.4
A failsafe is a small electronic box that plugs into the throttle channel of your receiver, then your throttle/brake servo plugs into the fail safe. They are usually mounted into the radio box of a car.
A correctly set fail safe will return the throttle/brake servo on your car to a position that you have pre-set in the event of the transmitter or receiver batteries being flat, or the car being affected by interference. We advise that this position should be approximately 50% brakes for a nitro car, and neutral for an electric car. This will allow the car to come to a controlled stop.
Many of the newer cars are supplied with a 2.4GHz radio system which have a failsafe built into the receiver that removes the need to fit an external failsafe. Full instructions for setting these up should be in the instruction manual for your model.
