helidevil,
I really don't think there are any.....

But....... follow the instructions on your operator's sheet and you'll have no trouble. It's a REALLY easy governor to set up....

Also, the link to the tips posted by Dustin should answer any questions you may have.....

If you want to use the spektrum sensor you will have to cut the plug off and solder the align one on, the gov uses a tiny white plug. I don't know what the spektrum uses.

When you guys talking about compartible with spectrum, does this mean that it can be postion on the engine bottom plate?

NO, the Align gov is a standard magnet and sensor. When people say it is compatible with spektrum, they are refering to the fact that you CAN use the Spektrum backplate sensor if you switch the wires around.

the align gov is very easy to set up.

the reason that the instructions don't tell you what channel to use is because that is your choice, and depends on available channels. most folks I know use the gear channel for the gyro gain and aux 2 for the gov gain, but what you do is up to you.

1. in normal mode with a linear throttle curve (that's really an oxymoron when you think about it) and the stick back all the way, press the button on the governor and wait for the blinking lights.

2. then move throttle stick to full open position and wait for the blinking lights to turn green.

3. set governor "gain" channel to 80% or so, depending on desired headspeed. go up for more, down for less.

4 you're done. no need for video.

governor will kick in/out at about 30% throttle.

instructions are on the align website.

PROBLEM FOUND!!!!!!!
ok aparently the wires on the spectrum sensor and the align plug are backwards. so in this case black goes to signal red to red, and ground to signal. kinda messed up if you ask me!
