OK, I have used a multigov on a bunch of machines, but this is my first multigov pro..

Is it worth hooking up the mixture control?
I see the drawbacks being added weight of the extra servo/linkages
Also relying on it to do the right thing could lead to a failure & a dead engine...

If anyone has some advise, id love to hear about it...

The engine is a YS91st

(I was not sure if this should be an engine question or an electronics question)

I run 3 multigove pros and have never felt the need to hook up the mixture control. Early on in my nitro experience I thought I'd use it on every heli. Once I really learned to tune *(this year) I haven't had any desire to use the mix control and don't think I will use it. I found that if I understand nitro tuning, there is (for me) not much need for it. Others may feel differently. I have the Mpro on Os 50,55, & 91hzps.

IMHO, one of the good things about mixture controls is the protection. You need to properly tune the engine before you put the mixture control on. I have been messing around with a carbsmart, and what I have ended up with is the full lean, and the at temp setting pretty much the same, but the full rich setting I have move the needle quite a bit. On the carbsmart, if the sensor falls off, it goes to full lean, not a good thing. Set up my way, the carbsmart leaves the needle at the normal setting if this happens. Now, we have all had lean runs for one reason or another. If this happens, the carbsmart will open the needle. Depending on the cause of the engine going lean, it may or may not help, but it certainly is better than not having the needle open at all.
