OS 91HZ-R & GY701 Governor sensor mounting
Has anyone used the GY701 governor on an OS 91HZ-R.
If so how and where did you mount the sensor?
It would seem that the only option is to mount it on the exhaust side as the engine regulator is in the way on the opposite side of the motor.

Interesting place mount the sensor. Although I'm looking for a less creative solution.

in the pic of my gallery, you can clearly see a gov bracket and sensor attached.
Its the GV1 sensor, same size and shape as 701.
I do have a 701 in there, but saw no reason to change the sensor, especially seeing as its working just fine.
The pic shows a Novarossi engine, but I now have an OS91HZ PS in there.
Works the same for the gov.

gron, thanks for the pics, but I would like to hear what others have done with the sensor mountings on their Aurora's. The OS91 HZ-R has a large regulator which occupies the space where the sensor would normally sit if using the standard mounting bracket. I can mount the sensor on the exhaust side but I'm not so keen as I will have to modify the mounting bracket and I would expect the sensor to get hotter in that area.

However your pic has given me and idea about mounting the sensor on the Aurora frame.

I'm not sure if that gov still comes with the metal bracket or not. When I ran the gv-1 I had to dremel the gv-1 bracket slightly and install it on the exhaust side, but never had any issues with heat. Only issue is that you will have to install it before you put the exhaust on unless you have a wrench to fit between the two. I will see if I can locate a picture that I can send you if you have any questions.Team Align

After gron's pic of the Hirobo Turbulence D3 EX governor sensor mount, I ended up with this solution. I used some carbon from an old crashed tail fin for the bracket and 2 existing holes in the frame to mount it.
