Default cbe fail safe with nomadio sensor

hi gents

i have got a CBE killswitch,an got it all installed,an working fine on the 3rd channel
as a killswitch
so if the buggy is running,an i press the 3rd channel,it will kill the engine
that works great

but what i need help with is advice on how to run it as a failsafe
so that when the signal is lost,or battery pack goes down it will kill the engine??

at the minute i just use the nomadio failsafe,with the brakes set to full,if the voltage drops on the handset

its will jam on the brakes
an give me a verbable,an vibrating warning to tell me it when the battery is getting low

now the crappy(an some will say funny) bit lol

i was out the other day an my handset kept telling me "low reciver battery" an giving the warning vibrations

well ive now learned you have to listen to this,AN NOT have 5 more minutes run time,cause you think it will be ok

well finally the reciver battery decided it had run out of power,AFTER opening up the throttle servo up fully
an off she went,at full chat for 500ish yards,an into a steel fence,an then sat there screeming her head off till i could run an catch up,an press the killswitch

so hense the newly brought CBE failsafe/killswitch

so any assistance would be greatly recived
