Fail safe is associated the the Rx. Look up your FrSky model on their web site for setting the fail safe. Same with the DL Rx.

Don't feel bad I watched a very experienced flyer land a very large scale model that stopped at the end of the runway about 100' away. (He was using a 72 mHz radio) He started to taxi it back, then without thinking reached up and collapsed the Tx antenna. The aircraft went to full power, lifted off, rolled inverted and crashed. He found out about fail safe the hard way. Just imagine if he had been flying--watching it fly off into the sunset.

to set FS in FR sky Db8-II
turn on both tx then rx.. put the thro stick to the position you like.. most set it at low stick..and other stick in middle..
there is a bind button on the rx.. a quick tap of that button( less than a second), the module on your tx should beep..FS is set...
test it by putting a servo on ch.3 or a esc/motor no prop....turn of tx..servo or motor shud return to neutral...
