    I had a suspicion this was what was messing you up.

    Mike, if you look in the model setup page (first page after model select) menu on the radio, there's an option to setup the failsafe toward the bottom, right after the bind.

    When you're using a taranis, it's better to set it up from there. If it's not pre-set to "receiver", a manual failsafe through the bind will be overwritten, with some versions going as far as overweighting it with "not setup".

    Power on both TX and Rx, pick custom and set, and from there you can then set the response and position of each channel. From there, it should stick.

    Well, I kind of answered my own question. After poking around some more I discovered as many of you have mentioned that on RC aircraft the failsafe is in the receiver. I have a Spektrum DX6i with the AR610 6ch DSMX reciever. And according to the AR610 manual when failsafe kicks in it goes into a low throttle mode and all other channels recieve no input and are inactive. It would be nice if it would do the slow circle thing, but I guess this is better than nothing. At some point I will be switching to my FrSky Taranis x9d+, but the Spektrum is what I'm using for now. Is there a recommened FrSky reciever for planes? Or will an X4R work fine? And thank you to everybody who replied!

    Custom, after setting that select set, scroll down to the THR channels and set it to -100%
    The broken line is the current channel out put
    The solid line if the failsafe setting
    A quick way to match the setting to current channel output is to
    - select the ch
    - press ENT
    - press ENT again but keep it pressed

    FrSKY gives you the choice of having the failsafe on the Rx or on the Tx.
    They have many different Rx options. Stick to the X & S series.
    Their new S series is the same as the X but with a gyro.

    Awesome! Missed that setting. Maybe I will even be able to dial in a little bit of rudder to cause a circular descent instead of a straight glide.

    Thanks,
