"Yes, but a "long time ago"... I don't remember why, but when I configured my FS i choosed the way by using the FS of the rx/tx rather than the firmware way. I will read again about that."

"If you use the Throttle Failsafe designed into the firmware you will have a choice whether to continue the mission, RTL, or LAND. Have you read the wiki on setting failsafe?"

"Umm no answer since 2 months, I hope this post is still alive. I got the same problem than BertzillAvionics. I configured failsafe on my FrSKY to call a RTL. I didn't configure anything about FailSafe into the APM. I tested in MP, when I…"
