I'm looking for a gov that will work with only 6 channels. From what I can tell MGP seems to be the choice, since I can adjust everything with the LCD. My question is, will the MGP be on all the time, even in normal mode. I understand that MGP will only activate when 70% of throttle is reached, even in normal. So if I set normal to 1800 rpm and idle1 to 2000 it should work. When I spool up in normal, the MGP will turn on and set the rpm to 1800, then I go into idle1 it will increase to 2000. I also like the fact that it has soft start. Sorry for the rambling, but governors are new to me.

I'm not sure if the Multigov will work without a remote lead or not but if it does, you'll only have one RPM and when the governor kicks in thats what your RPM will be regardless of flight mode switch.

The 7th channel, or remote lead, is what tells the MG that you changed flight modes, otherwise it doesn't know to ramp up the speed.

Your 'other' option would be to get a gyro that can be setup without a remote sense lead. This would free up the extra channel for gov control.

After looking into it more. It will work on 6 channels, but I do only get one speed. I think that is fine for me right now. Thanks for all the input.
