Failsafe positions come from the Tx during the bind process not the 3gx unit. When using the sat rx's the bind plug in the 3gx is simply an interface telling the sats to go into bind mode.beating the air into submission...........cool!

Hey Buddy.

Yes, this I know.

However if you remember back to the release of the 3GX, the V1 firmware did not have any form of failsafe, a failsafe came with the release of V1.1 firmware.
So this tells me it is software written into the 3GX unit that needs to be taught a failsafe position, which is done during the bind process as you say. But if you are not binding the sats while connected to the 3GX this cannot take place.

Satellites are just receivers, they do not store failsafe positions, the FBL unit they are connected to does. Or a standard Spektrum receiver, which has extra signal paths via the seperate satellites.
You need to remember that the FBL unit (3GX, Beastx, Vbar etc) knows from the satellites there has been a loss of signal and it then drives the servos to their failsafe positions, as it controls them. So one would automatically assume the FBL unit memorises the failsafe positions, this is backed up by the two options made available to the user by removing the bind plug or leaving it plugged in. Reinforced further by the firmware release which added failsafe to the 3GX.

Also unless you plug the satellites back into the seperate receiver after you have setup the 3GX and modified your transmitter settings to suit, then the stock Tx. model settings transmitted during the bind process will probably drive the servos to the wrong position. Hence Zaneman007 comments of what he has witnessed ;
When it lost bind the servos went hard left way beyond the limits set, not pretty. And since it will no longer recognize you radio, there is no chance in h#ll that it will re-connect.
I think the safest advice to give is to use a seperate Spektrum receiver and satellite if you are using a plug in module or 6 channel transmitter.
