Is it recommend to install Govenor such as Futaba GV 1 to 50 class helis ? Could anyone share with me his opinion ?

What is the advantage of installing Govenor to a heli?

Thanks

I use GV-1 on all my birds. The sensor on the GV-1 is known to fail so you might want to look at TJ and a Hall Effect Sensor for potential reliability improvments.

HI

I found that with my GV-1s in each machine that being 90's they would over speed on dives a bit, which became more noticable if I lowered the desired rpm.

I changed to the TJ PRO which clearly reacted far faster. Not only do they therefore regulate the rpm much better, but they effectivly give the model more power when inputting cyclics.

I have now changed to the Revlock as this reacts slightly quicker still which only shows up in a skytah tacho, so not really a difference you can pick up on otherwise. Just locked.

But this one picks up the control at a lower position to the target speed, as did the GV-1 which was always a better way.

So best of both worlds.. Fast and locked, but ramps up too.
Oh and you set the rpm on the unit itself with lights, rather than going on line etc.

Worth a look see if you can get this in the US.. Won't be long.

Simon.

Put shrink tubing or dental floss with epoxy around the sensor.
Both ways keeps the sensor together.

I´ve been using shrink tubing on my sensors and havent had any problems.

Jason,
I'm using GV-1 in my Evo and I just love it especially with powerful OS hyper.
For weathering on sensor, I simply cover all sensor with goop and there is no way any foreign material or oil can penetrate into a sensor.
I think GV-1 is only option in Hong Kong because of price for time being.

sorry for that ......many of the established hobby shops in Hong Kong do not handle online orders..... That's why their web site is not up to date or it may not too fancy ..... This is what I think.......

it's just my personal idea........


Nevertheless, many local modellers or foreigners buy from them at their storefronts.

They carry relatively wider collection......

Good Luck .!
