Mine works great. Easy to setup too. For a cheap gov...ya cant beat it. I fly with guys who use more popular govs, mine works just as well. It's important to have your engine tuned but I think thats true with any other gov as well.

The Align governor does a good job maintaining head speed. It does a poor job as far as applying throttle changes when switching RPM (such as coming out of throttle hold). I feel it hammers the throttle on way too hard, and may lead to some main gear issues.
I have two of them in my T700's, just due to simplicity of install of the sensor. I picked up a new bracket for my CSM sensors and will likely go back to RL20 on next maintenance event.

Hmmm....Mine works great when aborting autos (or any kind of flight mode change) Never had an issue with main gears in my 600. Mabey it's a problem with the 700?

That sounds like a radio set up issue,you might do a search and and get some help with that.

They hold OK - not as well as a Throttle Jockey. They seem to allow the engine to slightly overrev upon fast unload. They are also slow to change from, for example, governed normal mode to governed idle-up. But, for the money and total simplicity you just can't beat them.

Mine has worked out fine so far.

I am using a 12fgh. I don't know if the governor set is the same with the 10c, but here's a link to what I went through and perhaps there will be info there that can help you.

Futaba 7CHP
I use to have my Throttle Jockey on my 7CHP and yes you use channel 7. I had it set to the aux2 switch. where it was on or off. could not set it up for flight modes. I now have a DX7 and set it up the same way. ON or OFF. Just have throttle curves set for flight modes. I mainly use mine as a limiter. By that I have high Curves and let the Gov hold down the throttle.

The Align gov. works great, I have used them since they came out and they are among the simples to setup and they work very well especially when using a quicker servo.

I have yet to see any compatibility issues with radios currently on the market.

Just follow the instructions for the gov and use the end points of the channel you want to use. It will be on or off (good enough for me....I only need 1 govrnd HS.)
