any one have the link or manual for the GV-1 OPTICAL SENSOR that I can download as I'm not sure how it install. Does GV-1 OPTICAL SENSOR use magnet to read the RPM? or what it use to read the RPM?

thanks all,
JG


It was in the air, but now it's on the ground. :)

No magnet, it uses a small piece of metal tape the the sensor reads. It just gets stuck to the underside of the fan. I use a small amount of thin ca around the perimeter of the tape, just to insure it wont come off. Sorry , I have no link for you to load. When you get it installed and operating, you will love it. It way outlasts the standard sensor that comes with the GV-1.

I got my setup from Heliproz, in Montana. The sensor came with the tape. Im sure they can sell you the tape. I think its just like metal duct tape, made out of aluminum. It might be thinner though, better to buy it from a heli shop and be sure.

Any hobby shop ought to have some chrome tape that would work.
