Best Govenor?
I have the Futaba GV-1 gov currently. The only thing is, is it only lets you dial it up to 2100rpm. i love fast head speed on my helis, so this dont help. Anyways, i ended up trying to trick it into thinking its a different gear ratio to give me higher head speed.(mine is 8.5-1)

And it dont seem to work as well as i want it to. Its working, but not fast enough. I tried my gear ratio, and tricking it.

So whats a good govenor? And hopefully smallest, or maybe plug into computer software?

yeah i was gonna try that. I wasnt sure if the GY701 gov can be used by itself or you need to run the gyro with it as well.

I have a spartan quark. So how good is this 701?

The 701 is awesome. Both the governor and the Gyro.

Stupid simple to setup, holds perfect. Keeps engine RPM's very consistent.

Can't wait for the new back plate sensor to come out next month.

The gyro part of the GY-701 is rock solid. Holds even better than the GY-520 does. Gain settings are incredible. I run 70% in idle1 with no waggle at all.Team Synergy/Rail, Team Scorpion, YS Engines, VelTye

I am running the GY701 gyro/governor combo. Both are way better than 520 or 611 and for sure much better than the GV1.

Only that I am not sure the sensor from GV1 is 100% compatible with the one from GY701.
