I installed and setup the Align governor (RCE-G600) according to these instructions: http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=49362 ( post #6, by 'stockracing' ) This enables turning on and off the governor with the AUX switch, and different headspeeds in all three flight modes.

What does not make sense to me though, is engine speed (head speed) table in the Align manual. Why is the engine speed vs ATV% different for different transmitters? What I would like to know is the general formula to calculate engine speed from ATV%. It should be a linear function, should it not?

The governor was included with the Trex 700 kit, and I was going to use 1700, 1850, and 1950 for headspeeds, corresponding to 13940, 15170 and 15990 engine RPMs...

No one? I guess I need to borrow a skytach and figure out by trial and error then I will report back here what I find, eventually.

I don't use the ATV method, I just setup the head speed from the governor function menu on my Futaba 12FGH, you can refer to the mapping table herr from this Blog. That's much easier to me.
