    Microgyros also have a good reputation and following for level controllers and ESCs:

    Personally I have only used their ESCs, which worked well.

    I am not sure about standalone fail safes nowadays. Most of the stuff I seem to use now has the function built in (e.g openLRS or PCM receivers.

    http://www.electronize.com/

    Electronize produce electronic switchers with both 2 and 4 relays and a simple jumper
    will give "submarine mode" whereby a relay closes if the signal is lost in addition to
    the Tx control of the relay.


    Hope this may help.
