I am new to Nitro and just purchased a 600n. Haven't gotten it yet but I know it has a Futaba GV-1 Gov on it and I will be converting it to FBL with a Align 3Gx and had a few questions.

1. Is the Futaba GV-1 a good Gov?
2. Will it work ok with the Align 3Gx?
3. Would I be better off buying a Align Gov and sensor?
4. Will the GV-1 work ok with my DX8?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

GV1 is good. The 3GX has a governor feature built in, but uses a different sensor than the align.

The 3GX is Align so it uses the Align sensor. It works very well. I would simplify your wiring and just use the Align.

The 3GX governor works well, the Align sensor plugs right in, and if you want to use a backplate sensor, buy this Spektrum sensor:

and exchange the position of the red and black wires in the little connector. Clean install, super simple setup, and works.
