306 or any one else using the hangar 9 prop tach or other plane tach.
I know you can use it but getting it close enough to the blades to get an accurate reading could cost someone a hand or fingers or worse!
I still think the optical tach is the only truly safe way to get a reading from a heli.

Please be very careful if you use an airplane tach

on the GV-1 gov you can preset the desired rpm

I have a tach like the one that 30636086 posted which I clip on the tail boom of my helis .

At the end of the day , it gets dark .

That's the truth! Its like they say " all these stuns are performed by professionals, please don't try these at home!" But on the seroius side; is not the safest or accurate way to do it.

I dont suffer from mental iIlness, I actually enjoy mine!

Does anyone know if the Spektrum crankshaft rpm sensor will work with the eagletree e-logger?
