I've had so many folks tell me how good the multiGov units are I got some to test. Anybody experienced using this? I've been using the Futaba GV-1 forever.

i love it... its very simple to use and you can change the programming in it.. you don't need a tac, you can change like how fast it kick in and all sorts of stuff, plus once you get the monitor its cheap to replace if it breaks. even using maverikk g4 blades it still holds my rpm just as good as the guys using the atg or throttle jockies.

I had the throttle jockey pro, and went to the Multi-gov. I use the optical pickup and silver tape. I switched, because I wanted an easy to use device, and I can't see it getting much easier than the multi-gov's LCD.

I just use the basic settings so far, as I am not an advanced flier.

it just works, and you don't have the weight of the LCD on the heli, although this is not very heavy anyway. At least you won't crunch it in a crash.

Dampers are in the center hub of the head (aka the yoke)...the spindle (aka feathering) shaft passes through the yoke and is supported on either side of the yoke by a damper...the blade grips attach to the spindle.

Softer dampers (say 70- 80 durometer) have a "softer feel" in flight...meaning...the rotor disc is allowed to "tilt" more before resultant forces are transfered into the main shaft...therefore "moving" the heli in the given direction of the force.

Stiffer dampers (Audacity has 88 durometer dampers)are harder and result in a "faster" response.

Crude analogy...luxury sedans (Lexus, BMW) feel "softer" as you go down the road vs. a sports car that's tuned to "grab the road".

lotta ins, lotta outs

Actually, a pretty good analogy.
