Interfacing radio

How do you guys generally interface your radio to your UAV? Do you use an extra channel to turn the auto pilot on and off? And when I say auto pilot I mean a controller of my own creation not off the shelf so there would be a lot of testing invloved. My first thought is to put the auto pilot between the receiver and the servos and when the auto pilot is off just pass the signals from the receiver to the servos unaltered. But then I thought about this again and this doesn't seem like the best solution in the case where the auto pilot doesn't behave as expected and there is no way to bring your plane down in a controlled manner. I would imagine some kind of system where the reciever commands could always override the auto pilot commands. If anyone has any hints on how this should be done I would appreciate it. Thanks!
