Best Governor in the market

JJ-TREX450

Saginaw, MI - USA

Iím planning to install a governor with YS 56 SR engine. Therefore wanted to know that which one is the best governor in the market so far.
Iíve heard about several governors such as: ATG3, Multi governor pro and the GY1 etc.
Which one do you think is the best one and possibly easy to setup.
I know that Multi Governor has mixture control in it, but Iím not interested in that, as I already have a CSM Carb smart.
Suggest a good governorÖ.

Thanks..

3d flying, get a rev limiter, F3C type flying get a governor.

I've had great success with both the GV1, and ATG.

Concentrate on your weaknesses and your strengths will reward you!

I like the built-in convenience of the 7100Rs but if I am using an external gov, the Multigov is my first choice.

BTW, there are more options with the built-in mixture control of the Multigov Pro than the CSM Carbsmart.

Whats the best car on the market?

I use the Multigov, its smaller, faster, cheaper, lighter, and easier to program than the GV1. It's also got limiter and governor modes so you can play around with which you like better.

Most of them work.

Hey.

I've had good experiences with CSM's RevLocks in the past, having had RL10's and RL20's. They've moved on further now with the RL30 and RL40 that allows more features.

The MultiGov Pro is the best in my book. Super easy to set up and never had any problems with it.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

What I like about the MG Pro is I don't need a tachometer to get the correct headspeed. Just dial it in on the programing unit and HS is set exactly.

What I don't like about the MG Pro is I can't change the HS in the air from the TX like many other governors I use. I wish Aerospire would update the MG so the HS could be adjusted in the air. It could then be either read from a tach or the program unit afterwards.

don't overlook the GyroGov.
It works with any sensor, any servo, any mode(governor, limiter).
It allows you to set exact headspeeds in each flight mode.
AND it works WITH the gyro to create a VERY strong tail hold.
I have one mounted on a 50 and it blows away every other gyro I have ever used and the governor is spot on accurate.

I own the GV-1, Multigov, Multigov Pro and ATG.

My preference is the ATG, then the Multigov Pro, the "stock" Multigov, and then the GV-1.

Any will allow setting speeds with no tachometer . . . plug in the gear ratio, and set away.

The GV-1 is the *only* one of the three with the programming interface built in - the others require a separate interface (G-View, and ? ? ? - I forget the name of the MG interface) to get display functionality. The GV-1 is quite a bit heavier due to this, though . . .

The Multigov Pro is the only unit with mixture control. If you don't need that, the -Pro and the non-Pro are pretty much equal.

I give a *small* margin to the ATG since you can use all three speeds, and still shut it down from the transmitter. On the Multigov series, you need to consume a speed setting for shutdown, so it's three speeds *OR* two speeds and off. You all get to decide if this is important to you or not . . . if not, the ATG and the MG are pretty much equal, take that which you like and can get the best support for. Oh, and due to the same basic difference in design methology, you can in-flight tune the RPM on the ATG (as well as the GV-1, actually) and not the Multigov series.

The GV-1 is frankly, about the easiest to setup and run - no external programming interfaces, shows you your speed on the display realtime, etc. It's just heavy and kinda slow to react compared to the others. If you are a basic pilot with modest demands and can get a GV-1 for a great price, consider it . . . it will likely be a while before you hit it's limitations.

Frankly, if a gov responds fast enough, I can't see any valid reason to prefer a limiter . . . since frankly, on overspeeds, that's exactly what a gov does. The difference is that a gov also compensates for underspeeds, whereas a limiter will let your headspeed sag if your curves are not correct.

Oh, and frankly, don't buy the "flat curve" B/S that some folks promote . . . You *MUST* have a valid, flyable, curve under pretty much any gov to both get the best performance, and to survive a gov failure. Both the ATG and Multigov have modes that watch the curve and react in advance to throttle advances . . . with a flat curve, you lose that capability, and are far more likely to see a headspeed sag with violent changes.

With any luck this helps . . .

Not really, its got a mixture curve. It doesn't take any input other than what you program it to do.

The Multigov senses temperature and adjusts mixture on the fly.

I use the MGP.

I used the CSM Revlock before that and it worked very well, but I would say the Revlock setup procedure is fairly involved.

Thanks for all the input, I think i'll go for the ATG V3.
If I get the ATG V3 Governor with the Display, what else will I need to order to install it? How do you install the magnets?
This will be for a Vibe 50.

The Vibe 50 comes with a hole drilled in the top of the clutch bell. I used one magnet in one of the holes and glued it in with epoxy. I scuff the magnet and the bottom of the hole in the clutch bell with sandpaper slightly to promote adhesion with the epoxy.
