Default how set the fail safe on DX3.0

How do you set the fail safe on the DX3.0 after the binding has been done?

The intructions for setting the failsafe on the dx3 or the dx2 are as follows:

1. hold down the bind button on the reciever and turn on the power to the reciever, hold button till it starts blinking rapidly.

2. Hold throttle trigger on transmitter in the failsafe position you would like it to be set to (usually full brake), then hold down the bind button as well and turn on the transmitter while holding the thottle and the bind button and the lite on the Tx bind should start blinking as well.

Thats it, test the failsafe by turning of the transmitter.

right now, (I did what fastxr said) when I first got it, but when I turn on the RX the throttle opens about half way, on both my cars that have spektrum.

so when I turn on my RX and where the servos go thats their failsafe mode or spot? (or what ever you want to call it)

If you turn on the reciever without the transmitter turned on then yes the throttle/brake servo should go to failsafe mode. If its not set right, I would just try redoing the process, you can bind over and over again without messing anything up. Perhaps as J_blaze stated that the servos were reversed the first time you went through the binding process. Good Luck

Ok, I'll try binding it again.

I guess its a good thing I haven't need the failsafe mode yet
