ok guys..I'm stuck here! I 'm trying to figure out how to set-up a higher RPM on my Align gov. I have the gov programmed for 1750 in normal mode..want to crank it up for the stunt modes.

I'm using a DX-7 radio..and the heli is a 600 nitro LE. engine is the OS Hyper 55.currently using the AUX 2 channel.

Is the gov need a mix to increase my headspeed? The atg was like that..but never worked right.

Thanks for any advice
jeff

I read this post a while ago. Have the same setup more or less.

See this post: http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=49362&page=9
. Install the governor per the manual. I'm using a DX7/AR7000 and the yellow sign wire is connected to AUX.

2. Set ATV for AUX2 to +100%/-100%

3. Set throttle curve to linear - 0-INH-50-INH-100

4. With the throttle stick on its lowest position, turn ON the radio.

5. Turn ON receiver and wait for the governor light to turn Green. When it's green, press the SET button on the governor for about 3 seconds until the GOV light starts to blink. Release the SET button then move the throttle stick to its highest position. The GOV light will turn OFF for a second then turn solid GREEN.

At this point, calibration is done. Verify that GOV is sensing the magnet by manually rotating the starter shaft with a 6MM allen wrence or just use your starter shaft. The lights on the GOV should turn OFF when one of the 2 magnets is directly under the sensor. (NOTE: only one of the two magnets should make the GOV light OFF. If you have both of the magnets turn OFF the GOV light, the magnets are installed incorrectly.)

PROGRAMMING THE DX7
1. Go to the master menu. (Press down+select and power ON)

2. Scroll to Input Selct menu and set AUX2 to INH

3. Turn OFF and the turn ON the radio again.

4. Go to the programming menu. (Press down+select)

5. Scroll to PROG.MIX1 menu. We are going to setup here the desired headspeed for Normal mode. Set it to make it look like this:

AUX2> AUX2 ON -- if this says OFF, your flight mode switch is not in normal
RATE: +80% --- for 1882 rpm headspeed
0%

SW: F-NR
OFFSET: 0

You set your RATE % based on the headspeed you want for normal mode. Refer to the table chart that came with the GOV.

6. Scoll to PROG.MIX2 menu. We are going to setup here the desired headspeed for IDLE1 mode. Set it to make it look like this:

AUX2>AUX2 ON -- if this says OFF, your flight mode switch is not in IDLE1
Rate +90% -- for 2024 rpm headspeed
0%
SW:F-S12
OFFSET: 0

Again, you set your RATE% based on the headspeed you want for IDLE1.

7. Scroll to PROG.MIX3 menu. We are going to setup here the desired headspeed for IDLE2 mode. Set it to make it look like this:

AUX2>AUX2 ON -- if this says OFF, your flight mode switch is not in IDLE2
RATE: +10% -- NOT 100% for 2171 rpm headspeed
0%
SW:F-S2
OFFSET: 0

NOTE: IDLE2 uses the base number from IDLE1 and add it's own value to it. So 90% (from IDLE1) + 10% = 100%

8. Exit programming menu and verify that when you flick the AUX2 switch on your radio, you can turn ON (green) or turn OFF (red) the governor. Take note which way your switch turns the GOV ON/OFF. If necessary, you can reverse AUX2 from the reversing sw. on the radio.

Thats it and go have some fun.

Special thanks to george0079 of RR.
