Hello,

I am trying to set up the governor function on my Trex 700. Normal: Gov INH, Idle 1: ACT. Now, the governor works great when in Idle 1, but when I switch to Normal Mode, it seems like something is limiting the full movement of the throttle servo (almost like the gov is on, but set at a very low speed). When in normal mode in this condition, the heli barely lifts off the ground. I am not sure how to fix this. Any suggestions?

Go to the monitor screen, then see what the throttle, and governor channels are doing at those conditions.

Which governor are you using?

Concentrate on your weaknesses and your strengths will reward you!

Hi gilliraldi,

A few questions regarding your setup:-
1. what is the gov value in idle 1?
2. what is the LED color of gov in normal mode when the throttle stick is low and high?

Idle 1 value is 70. I tried changing this number up and down, but I don't really see or hear a change in the headspeed. Regarding the led, I will have to check that and get back to you...

Perhaps the governor channel needs to be reversed in order to work with the align gov? I am going to try this and see if it makes a difference.

If I remember correctly, I did infact have to reverse the gov channel to get the ALign gov to work on my 12FGH. Hope it is as simple as that.

Also, make sure your throttle curve is 100% linear when doing the setup of the gov (setting low and high stick postitions).

I actually tried that last night and it worked! I just needed to reverse the gov channel. Should have known!
