There are a number of Spektrum receivers that can be Bound for either Failsafe Hold or Failsafe Preset.
When I have had aircraft with Retracts and wanted the gear Retracted as the Failsafe Preset, I would be sure the aircraft was supported off the ground on Power up, since the gear would cycle. I have since decided that having the Failsafe Preset to Gear Down, was more convenient.
