I am fairly new to this nitro business
And the amount fo govs really is confusing
not are they different no they also sseem to employ different methods of keeping the HS or limit RPM or both ...

Which is the easiest to setup and run ?

The choices i seen are :
Active Throttle Governor
Thottle-Jockey PRO
REVMAX

Now thes are all slightly different in how they manage the HS which is best and easiest ?

I noticed you have to buy extra the sensors for the ATG unit as well as the REVMAX
does it mean these dont need to have the sensor ? are they optional ? how then do these work and gov the hs without a sensor ...
All very confusing ...On E helis it much easier just buy a Jazz

all govs need a sensor.. its probably a spare in case the first sensor breaks... if your planning on getting the atg i would wait until they come out with the v3 but if you want a easy gov to set up get the multigov... i love mine

The ATG is very easy to setup, flexible and accurate. I have one of the first batches of ATG's that came out and still using it today without any problems. Excellent choice for Gov's.
I noticed you have to buy extra the sensors for the ATG unit
The gov, sensor, magnet and bracket are all included in the kit.
its probably a spare in case the first sensor breaks...
There is a sensor pack sold seperately in the event it is damaged like in a crash.

My favorites are the CSM Revlock (I like the lights and the simplicity of getting a direct engine RPM readout without a screen) followed closely by the CY ATG. You can't go wrong with either.

The Revmax from Model Avionics is my choice. It comes with everything you need (yes includes the sensor). Couldn't be a simpler way to hold headspeed.

My preference these day is towards the multigov but I've heard good things about the ATG and have always had good luck with the CSM Revlocks

I've had a bit of a mare setting up the Revlock

And am not 100% happy with it yet. I'm giving it one more go and if it doesn't work out, then it's going. If you want a governor that you simply fit and can be easily adjusted from the radio, then don't go for a Revlock. I've had bad hunting issues as well

I'm using a TJpro on another heli. Setup is easy and adjusting the headspeed is a doddle from the radio

If I do get rid of the Revlock, I'll probably go with the Revmax.

Just my 2 cents

All of the above choices are good. It depends on what you like. The Revmax/TJG is the cheapest and they are great. The revlock is about 30-40 dollars more but it has the most functions. The ATG V3 looks really promising also, it has some advanced settings/profiles for some kinds of setup and the price varies around 90-100.

I'm using a TJG on my Synergy and its working perfectly.

What problems are you having with the RL? The hunting is either engine tuning or gov gain.

I have a Revlock20 and I´m really satisfied.

For me the set up was easy, and I set the headspeed from the Tx.
Did the calculations first, put in the value and then measured with a rotor speed meter, 100% spot on target.
I can change the value from the Tx and I dont need to check the HS with the meter, it will be as set.

I had a hunting/boging problem in the beginning.
I had a Futaba 3001 as the throttle servo( I was told it was 0.20s)and if I quickly applied a lot of ptich then the engine could bogg down...i found out that the servo was 0.29, that not even half the speed of my pitch servo. If I tried the increas gain the bogging got better but then it would hunt.
The reason to the problem was as easy as a too slow throttle servo, so I changed for a quicker servo and after this it is perfect.

I read in forums a lot before I decided wich gov to go for.
I think most people are satisfied with the gov they have so my advice (comes from a lot of forum studies, not owning a lot of gov´s) is that *any* gov probably does the job.

BarrucudaHockey...

The engine is running really sweet, YS91SR

Gain set to exactly mid point.

I've recalculated my desired headspeeds and set up the Revlock from scratch again

Going to try it tomorrow
