check the manual of your ESC and used your Radio by moving up and down the throttle stick.

I don't used align ecs on gov mode.

Programme the ESC to governor mode and run flat throttle curves between 75 and 85% remembering to set the first point in normal mode to 0%, so normal mode would look something like 0-75-75-75-75, idle 1 would be 80-80-80-80-80, idle 2 85-85-85-85-85.

Using a bigger pinion helps it to work better and selecting medium throttle response speed instead of Quick in the ESC programming also helps.

60% of the time, it works every time!

hi all ,
i can run flat curves in non gov mode., same outcome ,using flat curves all we are doing limiting is the throttle throw. that is not "governor mode" .
a governor maintains the Headspeed at any pitch given,,, the Governor will increase or decrease power automatically to acheieve a Target Headspeed.
i used govs in all my nitro helis..just am confused or clueless on how i is set in a ESC.

Setting up the stock ESC is in the instruction manual that comes with the helicopter.

Do you have the book?

It is a little cryptic but in there.
You need to power up in programming mode.
Power up the helicopter with your TX on and at full throttle.
Then move the throttle stick up or down as the ESC automatically scrolls through the different items to program.
You need to listen to the beeps. These will tell you where you are and what the setting is.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

If you just set the throttle curve flat or to 100% across the board then at the beginning of the flight with a fresh battery the headspeed will be high and then as the flight continues the headspeed will slow down.

The governor in an electric model has to basically hold the voltage down when the battery is fresh and then increase it to the motor as the battery flattens to maintain the headspeed.

Dude I told you how it is set! If you don't have the manual for the heli then download it.
