Hi all, I just order a new 90 vibe v9 from the lhs. my equipment will be as follows
-vibe 90
-futaba gv1 govenor
-futaba 611 gyro with servo
- os91szph hyper
- curtis youngblood mp2
- rotortech aeroflat 710's with 105mm rotortech cf tail blades
- hydrimax 4200 flight pack
- futaba 9252 x4
- futaba 12z

I am looking for a few build tips, Does anybody know the best location for the govenor magnet (clutch/fan/measurment). What percentage of nitro should i run in this motor, shoul i use a header tank, should i use exhaust preasure to feed the tank? and are there any snags during the build i should know about. Any upgrades I should be dooing. I am probably going to set it up for 140 ccpm

where i am everybody flies 50 and 30 size heli's so i need all the help i can get. I currently fly a century hawk and a vario evolution 60.

Thanks

Eric

The magnet fits on the fan, I just normaly make the hole so it's underneath one of the fan fins, so there is just a bit more "meat" left under the magnet.

15 to 30 % percent fuel will do fine, it's just a mather of how much performance you are after.

Since you have the pumped OS, you can easily go without the header tank and use a fuel magnet for example. In this case, you don't have to use muffler pressure and it makes for a simple setup. Some have reported problems with the fuel magnet, so it's up to you.

There are to my knowledge no 'must do' upgrades, if you take your time and are carefull, it should turn out a very good machine.

You can look in my gallery, I've posted step by step pictures of one of the Vibe I have build (for others !).

Thank you for the imput, I really like the idea of a header tank, so I would prefer to use one, is this an unusual combination are are others using pumped engins with headertank and exhaust tape too.

Does any body have a measurment for the location of the gv1 magnets in the fan, so the sensor bracket lines up well, I am assuming it should be bolted to the motor with the motor mount bolts?

Yes, some are also using a header tank, so if you are more comfortable using this, then do so.

It's no difficult to put the sensor, look here to get an idea of what it look's like when completed.

Just put the bracket on the engine bolts, fit the sensor and adjust it so it's close to the fan. I just put a piece of masking tape on the fan, turn the fan until the tape if on top of the sensor and then use a penci l to mark the spot. Drill, dry fit the magnet and check. There is enough ajustment possible that it's not difficult. You just have to be carefull to glue the magnet on the 'good' side, check the sensor readings to make sure it's on the right way.
