How do you turn it off temporarily? I have a new engine to break in and was going to turn it off in norm, if I can figure out how. I'm using a 9303. Any info would be appreciated!

If you go below 500 rpms on the display, it shuts it off in that mode.

There isn't any on/off control channel - you have to set one of the three speeds below 500, and then select that speed to get it to go offline.

If you want to fly it without the gov I believe you can just unplug the sensor.

Before you start the engine just unplug it.

I run my Normal flight mode with the gov off and normal curves. That way, if I have a gov failure, I can flip to normal and be fine.

And I never fly in normal (except during break in) so no loss.

Me too, I add a offset mix and assign it to a switch and I can switch the Gov off at any flight mode.

And if you want to take it on/off line in flight to check your curves against your gov setup, they you . . . ? ? ? ?

Um, set one of the three speeds to off, and then turn the gov off in flight? Of course, that's just a guess....

Read the initial question - he didn't want to change flight modes, he just wanted to be able to turn it off, which *can* be done with a number of other govs. I like the MultiGov, but this is the *one* thing that I wish was different . . . .

And don't ask me why I want to do that - I have provided the explanation a number of times in other posts, and don't want to rehash what is already hashed out . . . do a search if you are curious . . .

The mgp will not be activated when programmed it below 500rpm.

So you need to program mixes at ur tx. im using a dx7, used the mix 1 for rpm1 1800 std, rpm2 1950 std and rpm3 2100 3d. normal mode, idleup1 and idleup2 respectively.

google a search on how to program the mixing. i found it sumwhr but cant remember whr. you can set the aux toggle to switch between rpm1 and rpm2 or rpm3 back to rpm1 etc... without changing flight modes.

so u can set rpm1 to off and program rpm2 and 3 to watever headspeed u desire. but i found some articles (also cant remember whr) that mentioned, its not the rpm dat is crucial during break in, its the temperature of the engine. i.e heat cycle method.. so you might consider playing around with the automatic engine mixture control rather than the rpm.

ive got a new engine coming and will try out the heat cycle break in procedure. will set the max at 70deg c for the 1st gallon and adding 10 degrees or so for every gallon until i reach 115deg C. I found 115 with my 30% provide enough punch with my current engine.

If I decide I want to fly without the gov I walk up and unplug the sensor. Then when I am done tuning etc.. I land and plug the sensor back in. Mixes can be used to accomplish this same task I suppose but just for engine break in, thats what I do. All the original poster asked was how to turn it off in normal, thats how I do it. Mr. Dawson however seems to want his own questions answered in which case he should start another thread.

i agree.. but den again why tune ur engine to a tuning dat wont be used in your routine flight?

say ur routine typical flight is @ 2000 rpm, the carb would open, say 75% from full, wouldnt you want to fly at optimum tuning (high needle setting giving 115-118 deg C max) at that 75% opened carb position?

i often debate this issue at the field with other flyers. 75% is whr ur throttle would be at during most of the flight duration give or take. 80-100% throttle only to counter rpm reduction, tho this will lean ur engine but if ur collective management is good, it wouldnt linger in that zone for long anyway. plus with auto mix control, the high needle will auto adjust to rich.

as curtis youngblood and jason krause emphasised in their flying tip, governed rpm in all mode..period!

any comments?

1) If you want to switch it on and off during flight without changing flight modes, you have to set one setting to OFF (RPM below 500). Then do a mix froma switch to the Gov so that matter what FLight mode, the switch will change the Gov output to select the Off location.

2) Contact Aerospire, they have a special firmware that allows the gov to have 3 speeds and an Off. Not sure how you select it, but there was a thread here about this, and Bob offered to flash this special firmware if someone had to have a separate Off.

Most of us are all to familiar with your constant whining because the MG/MGP doesn't work the way you think it should. Bob already offered to make a "special" version for you. Either take advantage of the "special" version Bob offered you or use another governor.

You guys keep saying set the speed to below 500 rpm and it will be off. If you keep going down to zero then the display shows off instead of any rpm.

Because I can, on my TX I use a separate switch to control the multi-gov so I can have 3 flight modes and 2 engine speeds plus governor off per flight mode.

Sorry, but I read the question differently. To me, temporarily means "on command, at any time" IE, both on and off in the same flight, so I answered accordingly. To me, unplugging is more what I would consider "permanent" since it is off for the who flight.

Forgive me for actually trying to be helpful . . . .

Bob had actually offered that to me, and I have not yet had the opportunity to give it a try, since I have other govs in most of my birds right now, so I can't give you any insights. I was trying not to duplicate that thread here . . .
