What's the deal with channel 5(gain)?Does the gyro gain plug have to be used,or can it be split between gyro and gov?I want to add gov,without having to buy more channel reciever.the gyro is a spartan 760,and align gov.
can i do this or do i have to bite the bullet and buy another reciever?

I did this with Futaba but not sure about any other brand. Also are you trying to turn it on and off or adjust the speed? If you try to adjust the speed it adjusts both gain and speed. I just went to Tower hobbies and bought the 8FG on easy pay and now have 10 channels to use plus the 8FG is one of the best transmitters I have handled.

I had this problem about a month ago. I got a MultiGov pro. It worked fine when I had a 6 channel radio. I have since gotten a 8FG. I now am able to have three different head speeds, which is nice.

BH,if you cannot y the two,can he just use 4 for gyro and 5 for gov.he wouln't be pluggin in the gain for gyro,and setting the gov up in channel 5?I know a 401 you have an adjustment on the gyro itself if you do not use the gain lead.I don't think the spartan has manual adjustment.so the gain lead must be used?
can he y off another channel for the gov?like maybe throttle?

If at first you don't succeed... save up for another one...

Thats not a gain adjustment thats a servo limit adjustment, you can't use the 401 w/o the gain wire hooked up and for it to work right it has to be initialized in heading hold mode.

The 240 doesn't have a gain lead, and that one does have a gain pot on top.

This is how I did it on my Futabe

1. In order to do so, it is necessary to acquire an AEC-16 dual servo adapter (FUTM4135). Plug the AEC-16 into channel 5 on the receiver. This is the gyro channel.

2. Plug the lead from the gyro and the governor RPM select into the dual servo adapter.

3. Next set the Gyro to AVCS only. Adjust he gyro function in the transmitter to a positive (+) number for the high rate gyro sensitivity and a negative (-) number for the low rate gyro sensitivity. For example, use +80 for the high gyro gain and -50 for low gyro gain. At this point, the gyro now functions with the AVCS and offers two different gain settings when the switch is flipped. Of course, the high gain position is utilized for hovering and the low gain is for aerobatic maneuvers.

4. Scroll through the GV-1's menu until you access the RPM select screen. With the gyro switch in the high gain position for hovering, manually adjust the governor's settings to achieve the proper hovering RPM. To do so, utilize the data input lever located on the front of the transmitter.

5. On the 7C, move the gyro switch into the opposite position and adjust the RPM for aerobatics, accordingly. Follow the same procedure as noted in step 4, above.

6. Scroll through the GV-1's menu to access the StSw (stick switch) option. Using the Data + or Data 1 key, activate this function. The Stick Switch function will turn the governor 'on' and 'off' at approximately 1/3 throttle. This is acceptable for hovering maneuvers. If however, you will be performing aerobatics, you will most likely reduce the throttle stick input below 1/3 throttle. As such, it is suggested that you create a V-shaped throttle curve in the idle up of the 6EX. This will allow the GV-1 to remain functional at all times except when you activate the throttle hold switch or go back to hover mode.

That's pretty cleaver for the GV1, never really thought about it but you could use a GV1 with a 6 channel radio off the gyro gain. You might have to reset it up if you changed the gyro gain though.

but that technique won't work with the Align or most any other governor. Most governors *require* a separate channel to adjust the headspeed.
