Hi guys

I just finished an article about my experience with the multigov pro. It also contains several setup and config tips and some in-flight data that I obtained through the last months of use. You can take a peak at it here

It should be published on the usual sites in a few days too.

Feedback always welcome.

Tony

If I forget to say "Thank you" on Tuesday, I'll say it now. I haven't read the article yet, but I printed out the 8 pages to read over the weekend (my weekend is Sun/Mon). Thank you for putting this together. Judging by the other posters, it looks like it will be good reading and will help me make a decision that I think has already been made.

OK, I read it and am very impressed with the product, and the review - Thank You!!

Two questions - Is it possible to tap into the MultiGov/CarbSmart sensor wires to link it directly to the EagleTree? Rather than running a separate and different temp sensor for the EagleTree, wouldn't it make sense to get the info directly from the MultiGov?

What did you have to do to get your EagleTree to record the servo position? Your unit must be different than mine.

What servo is anyone using for the mixture control? I put a brand new JR S185 in mine last week and it stopped working - totally dead. I'm running 6v, but it's rated for that, so I have to look into it to see what happened (I just got back from the field and haven't had time to check it.)

Okay, that was more than two questions, anyway I just bought a Spektrum DSP75 servo to replace the JR S185. I hope it works.

Great article!

I wish but the eagltree sensor has completely different beta value. its reads 200F at ambient temperature
What did you have to do to get your EagleTree to record the servo position? Your unit must be different than mine.
I have the V3 version that reads the throttle servo position if you have a Y cable... all I did was to hook up the mixture servo and treat is as "throttle"... I can assure you that the micrologger will never find out
What servo is anyone using for the mixture control?
Any servo should work. Personally (since I use futaba) I like the 3155 (I used it for throttle too) but any servo should do the job

Thank you, Tony! I guess I need a new data logger, too!

Terrific - I'm sold on the MultiGov Pro, but does anyone know where I can buy one? Everywhere I've looked, including Aerospire, is sold out!

Tony,

Can you tell me which Eagle Tree sensor you used for your temperature logging, and exactly how and where did you mount it (if you did it on an OS 50 Hyper)? I would like to try it on mine and would like to shorten my learning curve

Thank you!

Ken

Get the loop sensor, remove the heatshrink, cut the sensor out (leave 5mm leg on each side), get a pair of flexible cables (like those from servos) and solder the sensor to them (at 90 deg). put a thin heatshrink over it and then epoxy it right next to the AMC sensor. Can't get any better than that

Tony

Thanks, Tony!

Terrific solution. I'm not totally clear on what you mean when you say "(at 90 deg)", but presumably you're not wrapping the wire around the engine, but instead tucking the sensor between the fins with the wires coming out from there. So, basically you've made the sensor similar to the Micro Temp Sensor, but it has a higher temp rating (420 F vs 250 F), correct?
