Brand new DX8 purchased the other day (DX7 bit the dust). I have three different governors for three separate nitro helis. I have Throttle Jockey Pro, Align 6600 and an AR7100R. I can not get the DX8 to recognize any of the govs. The DX8 allows me to assign a switch (Aux2)and call out what percentages to run the governor but the governors are not coming on while in flight. It's like the DX8 doesn't see the governors.

All the govs are plugged into channel Aux2 in the RX's. The gov is then assigned to the Aux2Gov switch on the radio. On the screen in the governor feature, the Ch is set to Aux2, and the Sw is set to Gov. So, what am I doing wrong?

thanks,
Rob.

Okay. I think I may have figured it out on my own. Will let you know. Too dark to fly right now.

I have a few TJ Pro's running with a DX8 and did try the Align G600 - let us know if it still having issues. Did you hook up the telemetry? Does it register RPM on the TX?

at the moment I'm begining to think that the problem is me. It's been quite some time since I've had to train any of my governors. I probably trained them incorrectly so they aren't able to do their job. Will try again this weekend and let you know.

Could you train the governor of our state (Ohio)? He needs lots of training.................
