really simple to just set your throttle curve at 100% across the board and then there is "forward thinking". Of course if you're not convinced that you can properly adhere the magnet to the fan...

even if you manage to throw a magnet, you'll hear the overspeed right away, and then you simply click it back to normal mode, land, and re read the directions on your 30min epoxy.

Hey Rodney....Just think at how much better your 3D would be flying in all those videos if you had a better governor

Rodney builds his 3Ds so light he NEEDS that GV1 up front for nose weight!

LMAO Jay.....

I agree with Brian (did I actually just say that...LOL ). I set my curves at 100% in Idle 2. This gives instant response since my engine is always trying to max out. Then I set the Revmax to limit the headspeed to whatever I desire (about 2000-2100). Bogging is not an issue with proper collective management and I can easily transition from one maneuver to another.

I am not worried about having an onboard tach, voltage meter, etc. that you get with the antiquated GV-1. The smaller size, easy of set up, and faster response (IMO) more than makes up for that.

that is simply not possible. by running the throttle beyond the limit your forcing it to work like a gv1. it will be looking at the headspeed comparinging that to the limit value and increasing/decreasing the throttle accordingly. I believe the way it keeps up is down to it being a little "free" with the headspeed so when the RPM drops it puts too much throttle in. I have seen this through a skytach the headspeed on the revmax with 100% flat line will overspeed if you do little pumps in the collective.

try a rev lock or an ATG and you will see what i mean.

Ade,

You may be correct, but I have had consistent results using it like this. I don't see how you say it acts like a GV-1 this way. They GV-1 and the other governors pretty much take over the throttle input based on the curves and the headspeed that you have set. With the Revmax set up like the way I (and many others) use it, the engine is always trying to run at max rpm (which is about 2300 rpm) and the Revmax is limiting it according to what I have it set for (about 2050 rpm). It may not "look forward" as you state, but because the engine is always trying to reach max rpm it is able to keep up with what I need. I do occasionally bog it if I mess up and bail out of a maneuver, but the recovery is instant.

Hi,

I uses revmax and fine with me. Only thing I do not like about it is the jerky movement on my throttle servo which is 9254. Replaced another 9254 still same.....jerky.

sorry i used to work in the control industry and its physically not possible for it to not work like this. when the revmax is limiting it will be looking at the headspeed and controlling the throttle accordingly. if you ran a 100, 80, 100 throttle curve and cyclic mixes it could be using look forward.

i would love to hear MA input to this. last i heard they didnt recomend it or even acknowledge that people like the szabos even do it.

You guys know the gear ratio of the knight 3D

I use an Emultigov. Love it. It actually overspeeds the motor a bit when doing 3d so you have more energy going into the next move. Plus it is very easy to program. You do it via a digital display you plug in. Thats why I need to know the gear ratio. The cover says 8.7:1 is that true or is it 8.5:1

Thanks,
Art K.
