so i programmed the idle and max throttle on the governor.

will the governor have total control of the throttle servo in order to maintain set headspeed?

or does it follow the throttle curve to a certain %.

i ask this becoz i keep reading 'set a throttle curve in case ur gov fails'..

well, without governor, 55-65% throttle will give the headspeed that i want.. and yet i noticed that both my governors (mgp and align) recommend using a 100-80-100 for idle up? does it need to be this high in governed mode? should the governor fail, i would be way overspeeding.

pls enlighten. thanks.

I run normal curves under my governors.
0-40-80 in normal and 100-50-100 in idle up.
This is in case the governor fails.
You are correct that 100-80-100 would way over speed

Depends on the firmware of the governor, some follow the throttle curves to some extent, some ignore them completely.

MGP does Align doesn't

The amount of influence the curve has is in the feedforward parameter of MGP.

pulento, can u please explain to me how feed forward work? im using it at 30% default setting. is that 30% away from the throttle curve?

so on the align i can put 100% flat and it will still govern the rpm?
