its probably okay, you need to recalibrate your speed settings starting at your highest one and work backwards

set your tx to the highest speed and then match the rpm by setting it in the gv1. if your endpoints are right on the RPM channel then it should be in sync for the other settings.

sometimes you may have to do a data reset on the GV1 to get this right if the S1/S2/S3 values in the Gv1 have been moved around a lot

thanks for the reply, sitll kind of confused. so go to idle up 3 and go to the 3rd window in the gov. and set the speed then idle up 2 , set the speed , then normal?

Check your gov settings in your RADIO...

If you are using JR...The Gov screen should read +100 (positive), 0, -100(negative) If your settings of 100 are both positive numbers the GV-1 will return to that setting... idle1 idle 2 and back to idle1 exactly what you are describing

i went through my set up screen and no gov. screen. so i went into the initial set up screen. and found the gov. had been INH. so i activated that which is on my gear switch. (i have had trouble with my radio lately. the radio INH a gyro setting on another heli i have) anyhow i set on the gov. screen +100 0 -100. now on my gov in the rpm screen instead of s1,s2, s3. it shows all three screen as s2. i am lost.

channel 7 probably...

/

According with your explanations, you mess around something...so be carefull not to continue ... wait a moment!

Gv-1 has two wires to program two different channels, 7 and 8 for example.

Channel 7 takes care of RPM settings.
Channel 8 turn governor ON and OFF. ( receiver with more than 8 channels )

Probably on your Tx , the programming was doing just using channel 7 attached to a 3 position switch.

For some reason, you probably CHANGE the switch to control RPM Setting or change end point as BILLJ said.

Tell us what your Tx is and we can help you to reallocated everything you change my mistake.

Spektrum Tx?...

so here is why this is confusing

the gv1 has 3 speed settings, S1, S2, S3. They are selectable because you connect an Rx channel to the RPM lead on the device. otherwise you're limited to one speed setting.

the three speed modes are based on the use of a 3 position switch, where the actual channel values being sent across the channel are 0%, 50% and 100%. In reality 0-40% = s1, 41-60% = S2 and 61-100% is s3.

when you start using the channel in a proportional way to control the rpm, the Sx settings on the GV1 become relative based on what RPM or percentage you have set for each RPM setting because that is tbe channel position being sent to the GV1

for example the GV1 can be set between 1000 and 2000 rpm. If you're 3 settings are for 1400, 1500 and 1600 rpm, the channel position is still between the 41-60% values to set S2 in the GV1. So it won't switch out of the S2 speed setting. BUT as long as the ATV's in your transmitter are set right, you only have to set the highest value in the GV1 to match either the value in your TX (if its a futaba) or the value you want and then use the percentage in your tx (or rpm if its futaba) to set the RPM you want in the GV1

I know this is confusing, probably should do something more detailed on it but one it clicks how the two things work together its pretty simple.

so if you're using a 3 position switch, make sure that the channel positions in your tx are 0, 50 and 100 and then set the RPM values in S1, S2 S3 on the gv1 to what you want.

if you're using a proportional setup to change the RPM settings, switch to the setting in your tx with the highest rpm, then go to the gv1 and set the rpm thats being displayed to the rpm you want. then use either the channel endpoints in the tx or the actual channel percentage for a given flight mode or switch position to get the RPM you want to set the GV1

let me know if I've helped or made this worse for you

carey,

again thanks. i am using a jr 9303 radio. raja help me set this up over the phone and it was working fine, then i got a over speed. now something is wrong. i just set the values in the gov. window of the TX back to 0-50-100. i went through the set up again . when i got to the screen on the gov. SWCd in raja's set up here on runryder it says to increase the throt. in normal mode. and the SWCd should be on. but it is off. it says in the set up to toggle the gear switch, but it doesn't help. if i leave the throt. stick up in normal mode and flip the flight mode switch to idle up 2 the SWCd display will come on. i also notice that now my gyro won't go into heading hold???

i think your tx programming has gotten hosed up. I don't think there's anything wrong with your GV1

i think you are right carey, but not sure what to do to straighten it out. i have retraced the leads they all seem to be correct.

On a JR 9303 the gov speed setting is plugged into channel 5 (GEAR)

It is assigned But is not activated by the Gear switch ( 2 position) but by your flight mode switch (AUX 4) Make sure you're plugging lead from the GV 1 From the RX group labeled AUX RPM switch to channel 5 and NOT the AUX on/off(located just above that lead) Again that is set 100, 0, -100 of GOV setting on MAIN SCREEN .. As Carey explained this seperations tell the GV1 what position Where are you in WV ? I'm about 40 mins from Bluefield/Princeton

turboomni,
i sat down with this post from raja. he helped me set the gov. up initially, everything worked fine then. i got an over speed the other day and now this mess. i kind of think the problem is in the initial channel set up in the device set up is.

i got it figured out. i thought about it long and hard last night. i switched off the gov. screen on the radio, and changed it to gyro. then ran the values of the percentages in the gyro seting window up or down to get to the 3 rpm settings on the gv-1. i now have every thing back to the way it was set up. i even have my heading hold back. life is good again. thank you guys for your inputs,

thanks. one thing that might be confussing is that i didn't have enough ports on my receiver so i ran a Y connector off my gear port and hooked my gov. and gyro to the Y that is why i had to use the 3 gyro settings instead of the 3 settings in the gov. screen.
