Gents,

I have a new MA Whippy gasser built. It's great! However, I'm having a problem with the gov.

Equipment; JR 12X, Stator Gator, Futaba GY-701.

Problem; The Gov causes the engine speed/rotor speed to be too high!

In the gov. there is a variable of 1000-3000 for the head or engine speed. With the current firmware up date it is changed from 1000 to 700 for gassers for this problem. However, when set to 700 and the gov is activated by stick to switch (JR Tx.No Sbus) the display shows "off" set it back to 1000 and it says "on"!

I called GP/Towers and spoke to their so called "HELI EXPERT" who didn't even know there was an up date and was as useful as **** on a bore! He did as much as take all my info, say he would call me back and never did! Not to mention all the phone calls I made. GP/Towers customer service is no where as good as Horizon Hobbys!

Can anyone help? I know about the power issue for the 701.

Thanks!

Do it "INVERTED!"

when u switched the low hs from 1000 to 700 try recalibrate the throttle i.e idle to high in the basic set up menu, it should work.

that shouldnt effect what u are experiencing. make sure your gear ratio is set properly and set the gov 100 under what you want. make sure u pull the red wire from the stator gator where it plugs into the sensor port on the 701 and plug that red wire into the rx( use a servo plug housing from a servo extension or servo u got laying around) that will fix the power issue to fet the sg to work with any gov other than the gv1. there are some settings u can change in the expert menu for overspeeding. if u do a quick search u will find it.

are you using a voltage jumper with the stator gator? This is a requirement for the stator gator to work with GY701/750.

Without the jumper the governor won't see the sensor and it will run on your throttle curves.

Well I took the 701 off and sent it in to be checked out. The tech wrote a note he could duplicate the problem on the bench so he sent me a brand new unit! Guess what, same problem. Works at 1000 but not 700 for gas under the new revision in the software. I'm stumped! I knew about the 701 and the stator gator power issues. I did split the wire and use an end from a ext wire. What a pain! Oh yea, I did recalibrate the throttle.

Any thoughts boys?

Problem Solved
A special "THANK YOU" to Carey Shurley for his help on setting up the 701 to work with a JR12x radio! I couldn't have done it without your vast knowledge of Futaba products and Heli's bud!
From an ex-IT guy to another, I'm glad it wasn't an I.D. 10-T error! LoL!!

The next major air show I attend I hope you're there also. Lunch is on me and we're not eating at Mc Donalds! Unless of course, you want Mc Donalds!

Thanks again!!!

If you don't mind sharing exactly how you solved your problem, I am having issues getting the gov on my 701 to work with my Zenoah g20ei and stator gator. I tried the voltage jumper using just the red wire, using both red and black, no jumper at all, and a y harness splitting the sensor to the cdi and the 701 without the sg. The y harness has been the best so far but not right. I can't get a good signal with the SG at all no matter how I hook it up. I may just use the futaba sensor of the main gear on the radikal, or try and get the futaba sensor mounted to read off the fan magnet and not run the SG.

@bustedmp remove the red wire from the servo plug on the stator gator that goes to the governor get a spare connector and plug that red wire into it in the middle location on the spare plug. now take that lead you just made with just the red wire and plug that into your reciever. you will see a rpm on the governor with the engine idleing if its working. if not switch the red wire and the black on the sg. IOW remove the red and black wire from the servo connector on the sg that would plug into the rpm port of the governor and switch them reconnect the red where the black is supposed to be etc

I got it most of the way figured out already. I need to get the blades on it and give it a go under load. Until the weather gets back up to a normal 30 or 40 around here, I'm pretty much at a stand still outside. It is however giving me time to organize my basement work area.

The world is yours!
