My gyro has gain mode and I'm not using a "y" harness. I've got a Rev Max, 611, and Fromeco Arizona and it only uses 7 channels.

The GV-1 doesn't really use three channels.
One is for the throttle
The other two are for on/off and headspeed
That's how I counted three.
you still need 8 channels for this setup.
That's what we've been saying all along.

All other governors that I'm aware of only require two channels, throttle and headspeed selection.

I fly DX7 with a gov on 7 channels but I would love to have all the bells and whistles of a 14mz. 7 channels is enough, just like all the other transmitter options.

Why not get the Spectrum module for the MZ? Keep all your Spectrum RXs and your high dollar TX.

If I were you, I will wait for the JR 12X 2.4GHz which is due to be out and dump the 14Mz and DX7.

Actually if u have a 12mz or 14mz you only need 2 channels to run the gv1 and have full funtionality, only because of the programable conditions in those radio's, and its easy to do. you can still turn the gov on/off and controll head speed without using the xtra channel. there are also some other programing options I have recently discovered in my 12z that are pretty handy, that i have not found in any other radio.

Do proctologists chew there finger nails when there nervouse?

The 12Z is outright the most capable radio you can buy in the $1000 range. Nothing else comes close. The FASST system just buttoned it up.

Actually, if you follow the latest instructions included with the module I have found there is no issues with interactions. I am currently running the Spektrum module on my 12Z on 4 helis with no issues (3 CCPM).

I did get the TM-14 module today though and will be transferring my fleet over to the FASST System. It is very clean with no additional wires and the module doesn't look like an after though. I would definitely recommend the TM-14 based on what I have seen so far.

I agree 100%! FASST works as intended. Can't say that about the other 2.4 systems. Before the deluge of contrary opinions begins, we all know about the one isolated manufacturing incident where a few 7 channel Fasst systems were programmed erroneously at the factory with a common code. So let's not have you Spektrum/JR fans blow that smoke up anyone's a$$.

Is there any doubt Spektrum released a product that contributed to the loss of many aircraft due to receiver brown-outs and lock-outs? That, to me at least, is the definition of a defective product. Sure, they have been proactive in fixing the problem, and they should be commended for making quick and effective design changes. But I would have been extremely ticked-off if I had bought one of their earlier products.

Anyway, I post this just to make Ringo sing (shout) a slightly different tune. Maybe he'll wake up and get a TM-14 FASST system for that fine 14MZ he has!
