I've been using the Model Avionics products for the last couple of years. They work very well and are small light, and easy to use. I actually prefer the RevMax RPM limiter over the TJ.

I use both the revmax and TJ pro, like them both, small, light and easy to use. I personally prefer the TJ pro to the rev max. But both do a great job.

Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

See, Everybody has an opinion. Some people like red VS blue. It would be nice to here (why) you like one over the other instead of I like one better than the other.

I used to use them but setup and calibration are a PITA IMHO. I now use the MultiGov exclusively and couldn't be happier. Soooooo easy to setup and just incredible support from Bob Li. Plus the new Pro version has a CarbSmart type device built right in. Oh, and no tach required to set the headspeed like with the CSM&MA stuff.

The TJ-Pro is a very nice governor, works very well and is very easy to setup IMHO. I prefer the TJ-Pro over the ATG V2. Soon I'll try out the new Multigov Pro in my Vibe 50.

I can't see how in the world anyone would think calibrating a revmax or TJ would be difficult. Hmm, make sure throttle servo end points are VERY near 100% on either side, turn on, flip switch, high throttle, low throttle, flip switch. use end point on aux channel to determie HS. can't get much easier than that!

I like the revmax a bit better because it responds to an overspeed just a touch faster, and since you use an exaggerated throttle curve (I use 100% on all points in idle up) your radio is constantly trying to open the throttle, and the revmax is holding it perfectly at the headspeed you request.

Well you have never tried to set one up with a Futaba 9CHPS then (my old Tx). I had to attempt Calibration about 20 different times and make several adjustments for it to 'take'. It has been the same for MANY other pilots I know, the gov will often just not engage. Do a search, the TJ and TJPro do have setup issues. Despite you trying to make me sound dumb, these cases do exist and it is not just me.

Jagnz, I don't have a 9CHPS, but I use a 9CHP with a tj pro and it often calibrates ok on the first try, sometimes needing a second, but rarely.

The thing about calibrating the TJ with the 9C is that you have to disable the governor function on the tx and set your normal mode throttle curve to 0 25 50 75 100, where 0 is totally close. I never bother with the throttle cut or trim when I calibrate(although that seems to be the recommended one) and never really have a problem. I use the default 2 position switch(SW A I think) to do the flipping calibration.

With the above set, flip the SW A 4times(up down up down), then move the stick from low to full throttle to low to full(for normal servo mode, keep it at low when you exit calibration mode), flip it twice(up down). Reset the normal throttle curve to how it was. Enable governor menu. If the governor light don't come on at around 50-55% on the governor menu and comes on at around 57% or so(assuming throttle stick at high value), the calibration can be considered done. The system works fine even if your governor light don't go off at exactly 25%(mine is always 23.5%, repeatable) on the throttle curve or exactly 50% on the governor menu.

And yes, I have experienced the tj pro not engaging 2 or 3 times in the past but its always on the first flight and after not flying the heli for a while. In the recent 1.5years where I fly 2 or 3 times a week, I have never lost the calibration.

I have not used the multi gov, so I am not too sure how good or easy it is. The only other governor that I have is the ATG V3. It wasn't particularly good or bad. Calibration is definately easier because there is no need to flip the switch. Can't exactly say that I hate the atg because in active mode, it was more powerful(with lots and lots of overspeeding), but I took it off and reinstalled the tj pro after 3 flights with the atg because it just doesn't feel right.

Yup, good tips and I tried all that. Sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't, and this is AFTER making myself notes so that I made sure and didn't skip a step.

Anyway, people can fly what they like, no skin off my nose. After using the MultiGov it just happens to be my Gov of choice.

i think as long is you're not using a GV-1, you will have a nice working governor.

I got a fever! The only prescription is MORE 6HV

I like the limiter. The Throttle Jockey rev Max is great.. setup desited rpm.. make throttle curve 100% all the way.. nothing to go wrong.

If you are using a Futaba radio make sure you have the atv of the channel you will use to setup target rpm at 90%...then after the travel adjustment change it to what you want for headspeed.

So many years wasted on plankers...!!!!

guys i have a very simple but urgent question for tj pro owners.
i have had probs with the tj pro , but it all seems wel now .
but , i noticed that after calibration , i appointed switch c to the tj pro on a 9 chp [ff9 super] . and the thing is , that that green light what lights up if yr throttle curve is above 25 % throttle , also lights up when i have the tj disabled by a switch [wich is 50% =disabled on futaba] is this ok ? i thought that the top green light is saying that it is active , im i wright ? and if so what is wrong ?
regards hristo

if you do what you did , you get what you've got

try cycling the governor % ard 50-55. It should go off somewhere in between. Mine goes off at 52.5%, below that, the led comes on again. It doesn't come on until I reach around 55-56% on the governor menu. Since it works perfectly fine, I just left it that way.

If it totally doesn't go off, try cycling through the whole range of value on the governor menu.

Revmax will cost less and I think you will be happier with set up .

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

The MultiGov will be the easiest to setup without a tach IMO. PLUS with the new Pro version you also get a CarbSmart type device built in.
