telemetry or governor for XL1005
hello

I have an XL 1005 and I'm flying it with Hitec's Aurora 9. I`m trying to decide wich one is best or usefull for flying. theese are my options:

A: Hitec`s basic telemetry with optical RPM sensor
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...p?&I=LXYPW2&P=0

B: Throttle Max governor froom model avionics (using it with the 2 magnets setup; for a 2 pulse per revolution signal) http://www.heliproz.com/prodinfo.asp?number=805342

C: Futaba GY701 governor
http://www.heliproz.com/prodinfo.asp?number=FUTM0820

My doubts:

1: Hitec´s telemetry: is cool to know exactly the RPM the main rotor has, and it will letme make a really good throttle curve and I will know if I´m asking too much to the engine because it has 2 temperature sensors. And I can know the engine´s RPM with the gear ratio. But!!! it isn`t a Governor (¿¿¿is it best a governor???)

2: about Throttle Max: ¿¿¿does this really works on a gasser heli??? (the 2 magnets setup)

3: I use hitec`s Aurora 9 and oviously it doesn´t work with Futaba S-Bus to use the GY701. ¿¿¿can I use the GY701 without the S_Bus or the decoder cable??? (using it directly to the RX)

any opinions???? Help!!!

thankyou

I'm pretty sure that the futaba governor or better gyro/governor is fine on a straight rx...it's the gy750 FBL system that is s-bus.

I agree it would be a shame to have the hitec and not use the feature to get headspeed and engine temp telemetry..whether you can check the numbers i flight is another matter...I have enough trouble without taking my eyes off the model!

I do have a simple thermocouple temp on-board sensor/display that I read immediately on landing and which also gives me max temp recorded. Quicker and easier than using an IR gun.. I can read it while the blades are still spinning down and sensor position doesn't change...
