Guy,

I have a 12z and I want to set it up to an Align Gov that's in my 700n. I have it set up on my idle up switch so that in normal it's off in idle-up one it has one value and in idle-up 2 it has a different value. According to the Align instructions, I need to use the ATV on ch-7 (witch is the ch that the gov is on) to control the head speed. I would instead like to use the values on the gov screen to set the head speed. I have not tried changing the ATV (its set at 100) but with the heli on the ground, the throttle stick set at half throttle, when I flip it into idle-up one or two the head speed jumps up a bunch. If I had a guess around 2200-2400rpm witch would be correct for the head speed when the ATV is set at 100. If I adjust the value on the gov screen that's on the transmitter, nothing happens. I did not try to move the ATV but I'm guessing that if I turn the ATV down the head speed will come down.

What am I forgetting to do with my transmitter so that this will work correctly? The lights on the gov are working correctly with the switch and in idle up one and two the throttle curve does not go below 50%

I hope this all made since!!

Thanks,
C Herzog

I don't know if this is exactly what you are trying to do or not for sure but I have the Align gov on my 600 set up to run off the gov screen. It did take some doing to make it work. I will see what I can do to explain what I have set in the hopes it will help you out:

I have it set up with gov off in Normal and only comes on in idle 1 and 2.

Governor Screen:
Rate 1
Act = Switch Position = Normal set to Off-On-On
Unit = %
Switch = SE (Same as my idle ups)
Group = GRP
Rate = 81%

Rate 1
Act = Switch Position = Idle 1 set to Off-On-On
Unit = %
Switch = SE
Group = Sngl
Rate = 73%

Rate 1
Act = Switch position = Idle 2 set to Off-On-On
Unit = %
Switch = SE
Group = Grp

Function Screen:
Governor Control = SE

I hope that help it took me a few weeks to finally get it so I hope I didn't miss anything.

==================
Flip switches with caution as you may find you like it

Thanks for taking the time to explain all this and yes you may have solved my problem. The way I have mine is similar except mine is set up so that the rates change. Normal is in rate 1, idle-up one is in rate 2 and idle-up 3 is in rate 3.

I'll copy the program that I have now and change it on one and see what happens. Again, thanks for taking the time to do this.

Edit,
I just went and changed mine. When I turned off everything for rates 2 and 3, I could see that in idle 1 and 2 rate 1 went off. It was only on in the normal mode. Right now I have it set up like yours. If I get a chance to try it out tomorrow, I'll let you know what happens but this makes since now why it was not working like I thought it should. I knew it was something stupid that I did.
