Which radio ? Newer ones (DX7s, DX8, DX10 and DX18) have alarms if the throttle is not zero. Also, I would suggest using a throttle cut switch. On my DX18 I have alarms if the throttle cut is not engaged when powering up (heli) and throttle stick is not zero (planes).

Wait. Normally falisafe should work like this: When powering the RX and no TX is on, no signal is output to the ESC. And when you turn on the radio and it transmits full throttle the ESC should not arm. Let me have a look to the AR9000 manual.

There are 2 ways to bind. Either you leave the bind plug the whole time connected or you remove the bind plug when the RX blinks before you enter binding mode on your radio. Try both ways. One is Smart Safe, one is Preset Filsafe.

As mentioned, before connecting your battery make sure the radio is on and throttle cut is enabled. Use your brain when fooling around with RC stuff ! Get used to doing the same checks every time you switch on your radio.
