Just got my TREX 450SE built. Running the included Align brushless motor and ESC.
The newer 35A has a governor mode (heli mode 2), but I am somewhat baffled as to how to set up the radio to use it. It mentions this mode is for Idle up only, and not suitable for normal. So how do I spool up in normal, and then switch to idle up and have the ESC operate in governor mode?

Don't even bother with gov on an Align ESC. Its lacking in function even though the theory is good but the head speed occilates too much for comfortable flying. A Jazz is big bucks but its the best for gov function and the CC35 firmware has come a long way the past year for the ease of programming and gov function. The point of the gov is to get your pinion selection down for the head speed at lets say 80% curve, the gov will hold the head speed through out the flight under loaded and relieved stress situations and maintain the rpm to pretty much where you have it set. The occilation the Align provides is very good for reaction training but not good for all around flying. The avid users of the align esc can suggest some curves and pinions for your personal needs.

Programming the Align 35 ESC, Option settings
--------------------------------------------------
Option 1, Brake setting. Low stick indicates no brake, (which is what you want for a heli), mid stick indicates soft brake, and high stick indicates hard brake.

Option 2, Motor timing. Low stick indicates low timing, mid stick indicates mid timing, and high stick indicates high timing. Generally, lower pole motors use lower timing while higher poles to use higher timing. Higher timing gives more power at the expense of efficiency. For the Align motor, low or mid is fine. Personally, I use mid with my Align 430L.

Option 3, Battery protection. Low stick is high protection, or cutoff at 70% of pack voltage. Mid stick is mid protection (default), or cutoff at 65% of pack voltage. High stick is low protection, or cutoff at 60% of pack voltage. I prefer high protection, to prevent over-discharging the pack.

Option 4, Aircraft mode. Low stick is "normal airplane" mode, mid stick is for soft start, high stick is governor mode. Note that this option may not be available in earlier versions of this ESC. I prefer soft start personally.

Option 5. Throttle response. Low stick is low response, mid stick is mid response (default), high is for quick throttle response. Note that this option may not be available in earlier versions of this ESC.

Found this it may help
