setting up ATG v3 with 8FG - 3 head speeds?

Normal and Idle 2 were easy. The HS was created by adjusting the end points. To get 1650 for Normal, I was at +58% and for a HS of 1950 at Idle2 I was at -81%. Getting HS for Idle 1 was tricky. First I had to assign Aux channel (Ch8) to the 3-position idle up switch (S-E). Create a program mix setting gov2 as both "master" and "slave". I inhibited position 1 and position 3 and activated position 2. To get a HS of 1800 for Idle 1, I needed to adjust the position of one of the ranges (forgot which one, I will have to check) to -73%. The head speeds were confirmed with a tach as the light system on the unit gets you close, but not right on the number.

Is there a better (easier way) to set three head different head speeds for the ATG v3 with the 8FG?

Don't know about the ATG, but wouldn't you use, shouldn't you use the Governor menu on the 8FG?

But I use the Multi-Gov Pro where I set my HS using the LCD then 0% in Normal, 50% in Idle Up 1 and 100% in Idle Up 2.

Other than that, I don't know.

I have no idea....

Made a copy of my 600N. With some help from guys at the field, started over again. Used ch7 for the gov and setting % in the radio for N, idle 1, and idle 2 (INH the mixing I did previously) and I set up....easy as pie. I was just about spot on for my HS at 70%, 80% and 90%. to get the exact head speeds of N = 1700 I went to 78%, idle 1 = 1850 I went to 77% and for idle 2 = 2000 I went to 88.5%

I have no idea why I couldn't get it to work last time.

Thanks everyone for your help, appreciate it!
