Default Help!How to prevent engine running with radio off!!!

Hi!Back to an old problem!!When turn off radio with battery on engine goes open!!I Usually check this after being bit in the past! Have now forgotten how to do this and of course the mfgs don't mention this in the manual!Yes I know you should unhook the battery first but not all of us do this or we get careless.This a Optic 6 2.4 version!Seldom use it but happens to be on an old plane I took off the shelf,in the far past I have helped other to deal with this but can't remember how I did it!Checked both the Hitec and my Futaba manual and can't find anything about it, is a nasty trick for your plane to play on you.Seems to me it had to do with reversing the throttle on the transmitter but this doesn't seem tohelp on this Hitec!Have had this kind of thing with Glow engines when signal is lost they go full throttle but that was due to fail safe settings being incorrect but shouldn't be on this, well maybe it does but not sure what kind of fail safe there is on this radio??Well more I think about it the more I confused I get!!Thanks for any help!!

Usually check this after being bit in the past! Have now forgotten how to do this and of course the mfgs don't mention this in the manual!
Yes I know you should unhook the battery first but not all of us do this or we get careless.
This a Optic 6 2.4 version!Seldom use it but happens to be on an old plane I took off the shelf,in the far past I have helped other to deal with this but can't remember how I did it!
Checked both the Hitec and my Futaba manual and can't find anything about it, is a nasty trick for your plane to play on you.
Seems to me it had to do with reversing the throttle on the transmitter but this doesn't seem tohelp on this Hitec!
Have had this kind of thing with Glow engines when signal is lost they go full throttle but that was due to fail safe settings being incorrect but shouldn't be on this,
well maybe it does but not sure what kind of fail safe there is on this radio??Well more I think about it the more I confused I get!!Thanks for any help!
1. No mention of the type of ESC?
Most known ESCkill the motor when signal is lost.

2. Failsafe should always be set to kill the motor or engine when signal lost.
. Hitec Optic 6 & Optic 6 Sport - Fail safe Set up

3. All known high end transmitter manuals include a similar section to:
. Transmitter On First - Off Last
prevent failsafe and other errors. <xml><w:latentstyles deflockedstate="false" defunhidewhenused="true" defsemihidden="true" defqformat="false" defpriority="99" latentstylecount="267"><w:lsdexception

Always turn the receiver off first and turn the receiver on last.  Good rule of thumb.
