I'd like your opinions and suggestions on a good starting point for my Raptor 30's throttle curves? Engine is stock TT39 and stock TT muffler.

Here's what I'm thinking:

Normal: 1-0%, 2-40%, 3-50%, 4-70%, 5-80%
Idle up 1: 1-50%, 2-40%, 3-70%, 4-85%, 5-100%
Idle up 2: 1-100%, 2-70%, 3-60%, 4-70%, 5-100%

I'll be running a governor, but want good curves in the event the governor dies mid-flight.

Sure thing. If you're running a governor dont sweat it.

0 to 100 in normal, 100-50-100 for both idle ups.

Governors dont normally go bottoms up in flight. I hear a lot of chatter about "in case my governor fails in flight" but i've never had or seen it happen.

I myself have had a sensor go bad in flight on my throttle jockey. Good thing I made sure my throttle curves give me about the same headspeed. I barely even noticed it had failed

Amstel: When using a governer, make sure that you get your throttle/pitch curves pretty close to your desired headspeed before you start using the governer, its not AS important on a 30 but better safe then sorry

If you only have to bend over once to pick it up it's a good landing.
