So I updated to the 4.0 and the gov was amazing in my Furion 6. Best its ever been. Now after going to 4.01 the governor is as bad as it was on older versions. The power is off, head speed is all over the place. Has anyone had the same results after updating?

CASTLE CAN YOU PLEASE CHIME IN ON THIS FORUM FOR SOME UPDATES FOR US?!

I used 4.01 for the first time last week. I didn't notice any change in the governor, but it did seem to have more power. I'll check my data log in a bit after the rest of my house awakes.

jadams, based on my CC data logger, you are correct. Prior to 4.01 my governor was working within about ±50 RPM. Now there is about ±100 RPM change and one overspeed of 230 RPM which may have been unavoidable during a tail slide. More significantly, my peak amp draw has gone up quite a bit too (from about 82 to 109). I thought my Logo 600 was making more power when I flew it last. The data proves it.

Right. I forgot to pull my log prior to flashing to 4.01. The power is off compared to 4.0 but 4.01 might be better than 3.27. Who knows. It is just very frustrating to finally have a great gov from CC then in a "flash" its gone again. I hope CC figures out the gov issue soon.

Having similar issues with my ICE2 120HV in my Whiplash.

Gov will not hold a constant headspeed with 4.01.

I just downgraded back to 4.0, as that seemed to run pretty well. Although, I got the spool up bug once and awhile.

Yes Jadams!

I have the same opinion.
Castle need to give us a update for governor. After a big loop at mid stick the blades over spin a lot.

C'mon Castle. Do a software update fast please!

I wound up just going back to 3.27.

Low Gov gain, recalibrated high and low. Running good again.

I'll update when castle releases another Beta, as 4.01 is still too buggy for me.

I recently tried the 4.01 governor on my 160HV and it is absolutely three steps backward for castle, I am very satisfied with my 3.28 firmware. 4.01 did all sorts of weird sh$% on my 550, 600, and 700., like loss of power under punch outs and tic tocs. Got curious and tried it, I was right it is still BETA, it sucks!

Use 4.01 with the V-Bar governor and the HW phase sensor. A thousand strides forward!

No Funguy, you can have it and eat it. The CC ESC in airplane mode with the Hobbywing RPM (phase) sensor works extremely well with the V-Bar governor. Best part is the sensor is about $4.

Do you lose the soft spool up when you do that?
