Futaba 7C2.4 GHz

I set Parameter submenu to
CH7-sw>B

Governor
UP 0.0
DN 97%
SW>B
DIR> +LIMIT

When Idle up 2 has a v curve like 100 75 50 75 100 and atv is set high
The rpm stays low follows the curve even with sw B DN

With curve set like 100 95 90 95 100 then the governor will control the Rpm with the atv setting with sw B set DN

It's like it is just a limiter is this Normal
and if not where do I send it it is new.

Get rid of it and buy a decent Governor Any honest retailer will tell you that the have a store room full of Align Gov's

NO, I'm not knocking Align - I have a number of Align heli's

Bare fact is that they are let down by their avionics and hardware (which is why I upgrade the fixings and use alternative avionics in mine)

Cheers

3D?? No - just another input error!!!

I can not speak for your radio as I do not know Futaba.
I did help a friend set up a Align with a Spektrum radio.

It was a long time ago but if I remember correctly we had to set the value to a negative number (or perhaps reverse channel) for it to work.

For you maybe something like this.

DIR> -LIMIT

Well I got my governor working. My problem was I was using the governor screen. You have to turn it off buy setting the mix to Inh in the governor screen.

You then set the switch you want to use in the parameter screen for channel 7.
Then go to end points screen channel 7 to set your speed you move the switch to the position for governor on and change the percentage to change rpm.Make shure the governor light is green in this position If not reverse the chanel seven servo action.

If you Use switch E Idol up 1 will not turn the governor on when switching from normal to Idol up 1.It will turn it on when switching from Idol up 2 to Idol up 1.
So I just use normal and Idol up 2.
