GV-1 Govenor 2100 headspeed
Hey folks, I was going to throw on my kasama metal grips and see if I could get my headspeed to 2100 or so on my raptor 50 v2.

I was told that the GV-1 is limited to 2000 headspeed but I could play with the pinion size/headspeed metric.

Is there a formula for adjusting the headspeed with this method?

Thanks folks

But the GV-1 user manual says the speed control range from 1000-2100rpm (rotor speed). Your statement made me worry now as I just bought a GV-1 intent to use for my new Trex600 at 2100rpm.

I have been flying my 50SE with GV1 set to 2100 on IU2 for a long time with no problems. It flies very well and the power is great from the OS Hyper with MPII. At this headspeed the engine is sitting right on the pipe and gives great performance. I highly recommend it!Rob.

Hey folks, was able to just pick 2100, everything is perfect. My buddy was mistaken, and I hadn't even looked to make sure.

I had 'just set it and forget it' last spring when I first got it installed by another friend, and just went back to take a look.

This is my first nitro, just me being a dumbass.

Thanks
