Hi people, I thought I'd give governer mode a go on the E550. For nor mode I used 0/75/75/75/75 and idle up 85/85/85/85/85.

In nor mode I noticed it must be no less than 75 otherwise the tail does not hold and twitches a little.
Also in nor mode you cannot really descent very fast unless you really drop the throttle and then when you go to re-start it takes a while to wind up again.
I notice that after a full pitch climbout and you back off, you can hear the motor speed pulsing up and down.

It seems that gov mode works well in idle up mode. Its is kinda weird though running in gov mode after always just programming my thr curve.

What are other peoples thoughts on gov mode, any tips etc?

I think I will stick with the heli mode with out gov.

The tail acts strange with the Gov mode. Is the ACE ESC governor mode considered good not so good?

I use the Hold switch for startup and shutdown – that way you can run a constant value for the Normal mode (no 0 at the bottom). It is a much safer way to fly.

I have tried both throttle curves and governor. I like the governor much better because of the constant headspeed. I really dislike that constantly changing headspeed as the battery drains.

Ah good point, I also do not like the difference in head speed when the battery is getting flat.

I guess for me its probably a good thing, it reminds me hey time to land!

I might have another try at it, I noticed the E550 is the older ESC (no heatsink) and the E620SE and E325SE have the heatsink, I wonder if the software was revised for gov mode?

Are you using the ACE stock ESC?
