The new AMA rules require that the Fail-Safe timeout before shutting off the engine is 2 seconds. The JetCat ECU default time is 3 seconds. You can set this to 2 seconds in the Limits Menu. There are actually two settings. One is for the time before the engine is lowered to idle and the other is the time before it is shut-off. The timeout before the engine goes to idle is 0.1 seconds. Do not change this value.
With ECUs that are software V5.0B and later are already set to the 2 second default time-out.
