i am trying to set the ignition ( to off) on the failsafe in the event of a signal failure. However, unlike the 6008, the 617 receiver seems to limit inputs to throttle only.

How do i set the failsafe on the 16sz with a 617 rx?

Much appreciated.

I may have answered this myself. I am concerned about servo failure. But in the event of loss of signal the throttle will be cut and it is unlikely that the servo will fail at that point. On the other hand in the event of servo failure I can cut the ignition with a assigned switch. That should be adequate! And I believe how my 7c works.
