No shows is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These envelope limits keep the aircraft from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.

Automatic Self-Leveling

The easy procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select functions on and off doesn't require any shows and takes simply a couple of seconds.

If you do not wish to allow the SAFE Select functions, simply bind the receiver generally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.
