The Throttle Jockey is just a governor. It is used to keep a constant head speed through all cyclic and pitch commands. They're very nice to have. I use one on my Raptor 50 and it's great! The head speed stays nice and constant all of the time.

Buy the TJ and when you start flying with one, you'll realize how much nicer it is to have a constant head speed when you're flying 3D.

So would you recommend this to someone who not a 3D pilot?

It won't hurt you to have it, but there's really no reason to have it. I put a TJ Pro on my old R50 when I was just getting into forward flight. I did it because I couldn't set a throttle curve to save my life, and I was constantly overspeeding on descents. That being said, you don't need one if you aren't doing 3d, and even if you are doing 3d, curves will work fine, they just take more time to set up. If you aren't doing anything more than just flying around with a few odd loops and rolls thrown in, I wouldn't bother. Just set your curves up properly, why add more expense, and another thing to break to your heli?Nick Crego

about the TJ, does it really keeps your RMP around the clock at same RMP or cant really ? cos like u know when u do 3D, then your blades will like 'fut' abit and normally will tent to lose RMP right, does it helps to keep the RMP the same with the TJ ?

If you have the power, then yes, a governor will keep your Rotor RPM consistent. It will not save you from a bad setup, you still won't be able to overdrive the cyclic and go full collective, but if your heli is setup properly, then yeah, it keeps it pretty much dead on. I run a Revlock on my Evo, and it's basically unboggable.Nick Crego

I don't fly 3D...but I find that the throttle jockey is very nice to have. It keeps the RPMs pretty much constant during cyclic, which throttle curves won't do...the only way to get that behavior would be to add additional programmable mixes. The biggest reason I got one was to help overspeeding in descents. I think having a TJ or RevLock, or whatever is more important if you're flying wood blades, just for the safety features of slowing the disc down in fast negative pitch descents.
