I just finished putting the kit together with a YS120 and I have to do the electronics now.
How do you guys install a sensor for the governor ? I can't find any pics. Any suggestions ?

I have not touched any heli since last August and I feel like I have forgotten everything...lol

It's tough to get back into it. Finally the weather is cooperating and kids are finishing with activities and school and I am hoping to start flying at the end of the month.

Thanks all.

I use backplate sensor on my YS120 with no problem. Running Vbar....
KDE has a new backplate bracket that works GREAT!!! As far as the sensor, you will need to order it from horizon. This is the site. http://www.horizonhobby.com

YS120 SR stainless backplate
My YS120 SR has a stainless steel backplate, so I could not get the Spektrum backplate sensor to work with it (Stainless is non-magnetic).

Now, I'm using a Youngblood ATG sensor attached to the motor mount and a magnet in the fan. It works great.

Can someone please confirm 100% if the backplate sensor works with the YS120?

I am soon to install my V Bar and YS120 into a Whiplash and could do with knowing which way to go with this.

Currently the motor and V Bar is in a TRex 700N and I am using an Align sensor and magnets.
This works Ok.

OK Great.
Can you give me a link to the exact sensor that I need or is there only one type?

RevLimit sensor & bracket $24.99, this bracket will not work on the YS120 but the sensor will. You will have to order the bracket(backplate) that will work from http://www.readyheli or http://www.kdedirect.com.
Here is the info on the sensor.

YS 120SR
If you have a 120SR with the stainless steel backplate, a backplate sensor will NOT work!! We covered this in other threads a long time ago. Use fan mounted magnets and a traditional sensor mount.

OK,
I will have to check out how the standard arrangement works when I get the Whiplash come on Tuesday.
What standard sensor is the best to use then and what bracket arrangement works the best?
