For an R90?
CSM RL30. Great governor, and collective management that works great on a mechanical mixed bird like the rappy.
Got the RL30 on all 3 R50's and my lone R90SE non VMAX

+1 for the Aerospire multigov pro. Get the LCD setup panel and you won't need a tach. And the mg pro comes with ability to adjust mixture too. You will need to get the temp sensor accessory to do mixture control. I run mine in governor mode also.

Curtis ATG. Far more flexible than the rest . . . MultiGov if you want simple . . .

+1 on the ATG V3. Very easy to setup and works very well. In Active mode it is the most consistent I have tried with excellent throttle response.

GV-1 is still the most reliable and most flexible governor available.

Although the TJ Revmax and Pro gov work very well, I wouldn't get them if you are using Futaba FASST multi. The throttle and gov servo signals have to be transmitted on separate data packets for the TJ's to work properly. This means that you will have to reassign the throttle from channel 6 to channel 3 (or any channel on the other group)for the TJ's to work. This messes up eCCPM setups since the pitch signal has to be moved from channel 3 on the 8 channel RX. This puts the three swash servos out of sequence. It is my understanding that the TJ's can't be made to work at all on the new Futaba 6008HS RX as it is synchronous. I believe the folks at Model Avionics are aware of the problem and are in the process of a redesign.

ATG V3 is also good and about the same price as the Revmax. It can be used as a limiter in basic mode or gov in active throttle mode. But I beleive the ATG V3 has the same channel problem as the Revmax. CYE may have fixed this by now. Would someone who knows the answer to this please comment. Both the ATG and Revmax are considerably less expensive than the MGP, but they have no mixture control.

So, if the OP is unsure if he wants a gov or limiter, he may be better off with the MGP or ATG and get both gov/limiter in a single unit.

ATG simple setup with or without g view. and if sensor mounting is a problem, the spectrum backplate sensor works like a charm.

my vote goes for the Aerospire MultiGov. Awesome govenor. I have two of them.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
