Rev limiter will do the same thing and here comes the "but"

Can your current receiver handle 7.4v? The other advantage to the 7100 series was the high voltage options for the newer HV servos. I have the 7100r but don't currently use HV so in my case if I hadn't gotten this receiver on a deal would of been cheaper just getting a revmax.

I have a friend that runs the 7100r and I have to say its a very clean install the rev limiter works very well and the ability to run your cyclic on direct 2 cell lipo and have the step down for your gyro and tail servo you can also get switch glo pro and it will handle a 2c lipo as well. I know a lot of people running the align servos on 8 volts and they are great have not heard of or seen one burn up yet but that dosen't mean they wont. Just my $0.02

If you don't have servos that can handle 2s lipo you can get the Perfect Regulator . It's small light and can be set to 6v or 6.5 and is only 50 bucks.. that way later when you upgrade servo just remove regulator... As for the 7100R I think it is a great setup that serving me well in two birds....You can't beat Horizon hobbys Services..

I went with the 7100r and sold the Align gov and 2 in 1. Also running the Switchglo Pro. So far, so good.

If you already have the gov and 2n1 from the kit and want to save money then just get an AR7000 and be done with it. There are lots of ways to approach the power system in your bird. I personally dont trust the Align 2n1 as its only rated for 6 amps which is marginal in a 90 running good servos. Not to mention the switch fails off quite often and you can use your imagination as to what happens then. I stepped up to the Reactor X regulator and still use the Align gov which works very well.

If you already have the Align gov. I would just use it. I have it in three helicopters and have had no problems at all. Knock on wood.

If youre 'crap' at T/R curves, then you need the 'r'.

I use the AR7100R fed by the Align 2 in 1. That gives me a regulated 6 volts for everything, and steps down the voltage for the gyro/tail servo. I think the install is cleaner than a seperate governer, but that is personal preference.

With regards to the switch on the 2 in 1, just some common sense. I've had a couple go, but they've given advance warning. Look for the battery meter lights to blink... if they do, stop flying to investigate.

Both my Vibe and TRex 700 (as well as my to 600s) have this configuration and have been very reliable.

700r yes if you need the top revs (rpm) capping (limiting),

BUT ... if you need constant head speed, thens it a governer thats required

from my experience anyway, so come on guys you're the experts

Chickenrun,
Your comment about the differences between a rev limiter and governor is correct, however common practice is to set a curve well above the RPM 'limit'. With curves that are above your governed limit, you will get behavior that is functionally equivilent to a governor.

I know some that runn 100% flat curves, but you may want to back off that a bit and have a decent curve in the event the sensor malfunctions in flight.

JMO but if you going to run the LE electronic and running Skeptrum use the 7600Rx (faster) . Best Rx for Dx7se and X9303 without reg. and limiter..

If youre 'crap' at T/R curves, then you need the 'r'.

COLSY that's a poor statement...as jutrast stated it only recommend to run 100% flat TC.. I myself use the limiter and only run a T curve 10% higher then my needed V curve....

Ok my statement may well of been poor, but it was based on two things.

1. I dont believe in governers or limiters. (unless OP is experienced with t/curves).

2. I had a read through scotty's previous posts before i replied and it seemed 'mostly' his previous helis were electric!! therefore the above statemnt refers.

How did you know i had bad teeth.

Toby,

Actually you have a point there, you can wack up the the curves and keep rpm pushed up to the max rpm set by user
