    Its called a failsafe and several companies sell them. they plug into your reciever and set the servo to a preset position if the signal from you radio gets weak or doesnt get recieved. they cost about 50 bucks I think. Any hobby shop should sell.

    sweet revos rock! I love the 3.3 in my 4tec. I just ported the crank and sleeve a two weeks ago and it really sings now. Im not sure what the topend is at right now but it has a really wicked hit in the midrange now that it didnt have before. And revs for days.

    definately a failsafe!! a 20 dollar investment that can end up saving you hundreds of dollars worth of repairs.
