Mine are in channel 2 and have also tried channel 3 and also put on different button on radio.
That's specy being queer. The rest of the world calls that a 5 channel reciever. Str is channel 1, throttle/ brake is channel 2. Channel 3, 4, and 5 are unused. They are still referred to as channel 3,4, and 5. Not auxiliary channels. Welcome to the world of specy stuff geared toward 1/10 scale e words Products. Their 6 channel and up are numbered properly as they are mostly used in flight.
I use the DX5C and Killer bee but it should work for all of them. The trick is making sure that when you bind the radio you have all of the settings to kill the engine currently engaged. For example, I don't use it on momentary. When I push the thumb switch forward the car dies, pull back and it runs, and in the center it remains at whatever it was last set. Before I bind I set my switch on the transmitter to the position where the ignition is off, apply full brake and bind.Using the default setup on the Spectrum DX5C, if signal is lost full brake is applied which brings the motor to idle.
There are instructions in the manual during binding for setting up to brake and kill the motor.
It seemed confusing or I am just lazy. Whats the difference between shutting down the motor or keeping it in idle when signal is lost.
I use a dynamite kill switch on my Losi 5T and the Vekta 5.
They both function the same.

The dude I quoted literally asked why the brake was applied and the engine wasn't killed. You gotta chill out man.I feel like we have a bad habit here with continuing to elaborate on causes and solutions when the OP said its FIXED! DOES ANYONE READ ANYMORE
