Was flying today and crashed....as I crashed, of course I killed it with kill switch and I shut my TX off....walk up to my crashed bird and its still running in idle. I had to turn on my TX & Shut it back off.

Just curious if this has happened to anyone b4.
It was my Wizard x220

Sounds like you shut the transmitter off before the disarm signal reached the quad, due to being on the ground where the signal is low. Just a guess.

It came with a failsafe already programmed. One of the first things I check. You may be correct on the poss cause. I did Shut the TX off pretty quick.

Depending on you failsafe setup.....it might be set to idle. Best make it so it doesn't idle on failsafe. Shutting your controller off while your drone is still plugged in can actually make it go to full throttle if no failsafe setup.
