Hi there:

I have a Raptor 50 with an OS 50 SH-X, I use a selfmade mix with 10%nitro and 22% Klotz Heliglow.

Flying in stationari or fast forward flying runs good, but I've noted that when I make some 3D manouvers the engine comes down and has a power fall, and loose altitude. In fact there was a day I crashed cause this power loose.

But I remove the Governor function and runs very powerful with no drops and power falls

What is the problem? The first thing I guess is the amount of oil, but, it's the amount that klotz tell. And without the governor, the engine runs smooth. Adding a Muscle Pipe could help? Because I bought one

Sometimes, when the engine is in the rich side, I can see some oil drops falling from the muffler. Then I close the needle and there is no oil drops, but there is a lot of smoke (by the way, is see in some videos that this amount of smoke is normal)

I'm wondering to sell my two governors, but I would like to use them.

Any advice?

Thanks

Greetings from Barcelona

First thing to check is that your governor is set up correctly. Most of us who use the GV-1 don't have this problem.

Got a bit on setting up here:

Check that your end points are correct.

Setup

Lazy Man

What are your maximun pitch settings + & - in each flight mode?

How many turns open is your high speed needle?

Answering these questions might help others in offering suggestions.

When you activate the GV-1 it replaces your current throttle curve. You have to make sure that pitch curve and the amount of available pitch is not too much for the engine to handle at the governed speed. Also, an improperly tuned (rich/lean) engine can cause governor performance issues.

Just some things you might want to consider.

I`m also running 10% nitro an 20% Klotz... works like a charm, no bearing problems (running a OS50 @ 17k rpm for 20+ gallons) and more power than with other fuels so that cannot be the problem.

I`m going with cjw`s suggestion:

I`m also under the impression that your setup is a bit off somewhere, just check your calibrations again and report back

Cheers,
