Keep in mind that if you go with GV1 or a TJ, you are going to need a tach.
Never needed a tach with my GV1. Why do you say that? I programed the ratio and the HS I wanted and took off.

I'm bad, I help a friend set up his TJ pro. He operated the radio and I operated the tach. I just "Assumed."

okay Bob, you may kill me now...

I apologize, and i took back my words from Multigov. Be honestly, i am a multigov lover too, i personally have two of them on hand. It is just the feeling of unfairness. i am a youngy firmware+electrical engineer, and so far i still dont understand why i am working hours and hours to just save 25 cents off the cost, and the final price is about 3 to 4 times more. Again, I like the multigov...

eliseer,

No problem. Just needed to correct any wrong ideas. When you price individual parts and try to come out with a cost, what you might not realize is that in a lot of cases, the cost of labor for assembly/production is more expensive than the parts themselves.

I've been an engineer in big companies and sometimes you take things for granted because you get a salary and do your part of a project/product. Other people take care of production, marketing, sales, etc... If you take a product from design to release by yourself, you suddenly realize that there are many costs involved that you didn't think of before.

I'm glad you like MultiGov. No hard feelings; my job is to make sure you are happy with the product

Completely different, not a gov.

Multigov or GV-1. We tached the head with a opto tach and with my GV-1, it was spot on, haven't tached the Multigov.

Had this same question a few months ago. Now I use MultiGovs on all of my helis.

I just transfered the MultiGov from my Raptor to my new Trex Nitro Sport. I set it up and re-programmed it last night (using the large dedicated LCD screen). When I was done I thought - DAMN that was easy!!!!!

How is a set defined throttle curve different from a Gov? Thats all a gov is, is a lectronic device that has set perimeters ans maintains it. Right or wrong? Can you not bog your head speed with a gov? Dont get me wrong I like the plug and play feature of govs but I also like playing with my remote ans engine. I am kinda parcial to SC Raptorman on this. Before govs came out we all tuned ans tweaked our Tx and motors right? Not against govs, just think that I have a Tx that works why not use it and put the extra funds into better servos/blades/etc... Or just more fuel..

Throttle curves are a set throttle value at a given stick position.

A true governor will add power if bogged, or reduce power in the case of a quick decent to avoid overspeeding.

I adjust my helis throttle curves to be optimal before I put the governor on. The reason for this is that if my sensor fails, I don't want my ship to explode if its set massively off. I learned to fly and flew for a long time w/o a gov. My first dozen flights on my 600N were with no Gov and I liked it...except for the over speeding in quick descents and times where I unloaded the head.

I was flying for a year and a half on curves. Once I got a governor, anything inverted (rolls, flips, stationary rolls, etc) was sooo much smoother and easier! I'm never looking back!

The governor keeps a constant headspeed during a roll. With curves, you come down the curve, and go back up the curve as you change your collective during the roll. I guess in theory if you had a perfect curve, and your throttle could lead your maneuver so that you had full throttle when inverted, then you wouldn't be able to see the difference between curves and a governor.

But in the real world the difference is night and day. One of the BEST $100 that I spent! Wish I would have done it a lot earlier!

I admit I'm a newbie, but wouldn't a optical sensor system be an advantage over the magnetic sensor systems being discussed here, primarily the GV-1 and MultiGov?

Seems to me that I've read posts about magnets coming out, sensors being damaged, etc.

Also, optical could be an advantage for those using fans that have might not have a place to install magnets, such as my Raptor 30 V1's stock plastic fan.

Folks tried optical a while back, and while some swear by it, a lot also swore AT it. The main reason folks went optical was the tendency of the sensor cases to break on the GV-1's. Throwing magnets? It's never really been a problem until the 600N . . . I have a couple of helis that have had magnets on plastic fans for at least 5 years, and no problems at all . . . On the opticals, some folks were having the govs go crazy when they got inverted and the sun hit the sensors . . .

I have a 3DX AL fan in my Trex Nitro Pro, and a G-Force SHO in my Sport. I had a Kasama Fan in my Raptor 50 V2. No thrown magnets, no damage to sensors. All is good!
