Hi all, I'm building a new Raptor Titan SE and was wondering if I should use the Zero Alpha that came with the kit or use a GV-1 which I have laying around? I found the GV-1 worked great in my old Raptor but it's the only gov I've ever used.

Cheers.

Hello mate!
ZeroA is my gov,and it does the job for me.
A down side for it is that sometimes,it is hard to calibrate(and some are not,don't know why)

Multi-Gov or CY ATG V3.But between those above mentioned governors,I would go with the GV1.I still have a Gv1 in one of my R50se and if you need help setting it up just PMME.I really like the versatilaty of the GV1,so many ways to set it up and activate this governor to your specifications,after all the years the GV1 has been out I still love it.

Thanks for the replies guys. I had the GV-1 in my Raptor SE and was/ am very happy with it. I have it configured for 1700, 1850 & 2100 switched by the flight mode switch (aux 3). I have now transplanted it into my new Titan SE so the Zero Alpha will go in the ol' SE which I'll keep as a backup.

How much better is the Multi-Gov? I find the GV1 holds rpms really well.

10x better

1. smaller then GV1
2. lighter then GV1
3. Switch between govt mode and aggressive 3D mode
4. Built-in automatic mixture control & temperature sensor
5. Detachable backlit LCD configuration module6.
7. Advanced configuration options allow fine-tuning of performance
8. true rpm (Intelligent algorithm provides excellent hovering and hardcore 3-D performance)
9. Cheaper and Designed and developed in the USA
10. the most important thing....BEST Customer Support.

Use the GV-1. I have used both and i threw my Alpha in the trash. But if you are going to spend money get a Multi Gov. They work the best. The AGT works just as good, but is heavier and hasa control amp. Align works good to, but dose not have as many options as the Other govs.

Thanks for the replies. I'll make do with the gv1 for now as my "3d" hasn't yet found its performance limits . I'll see how I go with the Alpha in my backup Rap and perhaps later invest in something better if it doesn't work out.

Thanks again.
