Hi

Whatb exactly is the GV-1 governor for ? Is it mainly for 3D flying or is it for safety so the headspeed cannot increase to much ?


thanks

it keeps a consistent rpm for the main rotor..all it does it trys to keep the heli from overspeeding, or dropping rpm when flying around. You set the rpm you want, and it does its best to hold it.

it isnt just for 3d...scale guys use it, turbine helis have it, and even begginers use it.

So if I was hovering and suddenly a gust of wind came up, would the governor stop the heli from shooting up in the air ?

The Governor stops the heli from exceeding the max headspeed right? So if I am throttling up or down the governor does not play any part until I exceed the max headspeed set on the governor, is that right ?

the govenor wont keep the heli from shooting up...when wind hits the heli, it creates more lift..so the heli rises...so the gv-1 wont help that..

say you set it for 1650rpm...it will stay at that rpm the best it can. it will overspeed very slightly, but it will come back to the set rpm. the govenor turns on from either a stick position, or a switch...you choose when you set it up. so it is on through out the whole flight, un less you turn it off by setting up a on off switch on your radio.

No this is nothing to do with headspeed and is normal for a heli. When you fly the heli forwards (or backwards ) the airspeed creates additional lift, called translational lift. The same happens when you get a gust of wind, the relative airspeed increases and the blades provide more lift.... up she goes. When the gust stops, down she comes...

You get used to it
