I heard the Rev Locs are better. But I can't seem to find the RL20 anywhere. Anybody know who has them?

GAHH!!! Someone call 911!! My wallet is bleading heli parts!!

ATG will be my governor of choice. I have two of them going now, and the things ROCKS! Just another option.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

I have two TJs and they are bulletproof

have read more than a few post whereby guys were unhappy with the GV 1,, and my friend has 1 and he is not happy with his,,

I have a Multigov, it's very adjustable and easy to program and it work's fantastic..

Rev Max is ahead of them all.
And you can use a normal slow servo.

If the motor is set up properly (no governor can make up for improperly set idle-hover and/or main needle valves or too much pitch loads) all of them will work as advertised.

Due to the screen set-up of the GV-1, I find it a lot easier to set then the others. But once any of them are set as per the onstructions they all do the intended job.

Hi Oldfart, I agree with you.
But if you have a high power motor like a West 50H or 37H in Raven 30,
it is almost impossible not to over rev the motor in a dive.
With a Rev Max you can control it, and the heli acts like an electric heli.
Rev Max is so littel and light, and it is easy to find a place in the heli for it.
Lots of power when needed.

I like my CSM RevLock (RL10). I used it in my Hawk, AJ uses one in his Raven 50, and I have 2 in my Raptors. Brainless setup. Click the setup button a few times, move your throttle through its limits, and Bob's your uncle.

Installation is a matter of putting the magnet in the fan (glueing into existing hole mount or drilling a hole), mounting the sensor to the side of the motor (probably the most work) then plugging the sensor into the governor. You can operate it in completely manual mode, or use a channel on your Tx to control it. There are 3 modes, Disabled, Mode A, Mode B.

You will spend more time installing it then you will setting it up. It takes me maybe 30 seconds to set it up.

Highly recommended to run with one.

Workerant,

Yes, I also have the CSM in my Hawk Pro, and it does work fine - But how do you tell what head rpm you have set it for? There is NO readout. You will need a tach to adjust it properly. Not so on the GV-1.

RL20 has a usb cable option. Hook it up to the computer and "Bob's your uncle" as they say. Just like programming a CC ESC.

There is no need for a tacho with RevLock. On both RL10 and RL20 the engine RPM you have set is displayed on the LEDs of the unit. All you need to determine the head speed is a knowledge of the gear ratio of the heli (which you will need with any other governor system including the GV-1)

All governors will control over reving. The Rev Max is different in the sense that it will rely on your curve and mixing abilities in order to predict how to control throttle, which in its turn will reduce lag between the need and the application of power.

Other governors will try to anticipate what you will do next, which not always is up to par. On the other hand they are much easier to setup.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

The important parameter in being able to control overspeed is the 'minimum control point' - the smallest throttle opening that the governor or limiter will use when it is in control of the rpm. Generally this value needs to be some way above idle to ensure that the motor does not cut in light load situations and that a smooth re-application of power occurs on loading up the rotor. The optimum value depends on the state of tune of the motor and its throttling characteristics. In RL20 this value is adjustable via the PC interface while RL10 uses a fixed value of 15% throttle above idle.
