Anyone else like it better when you run a setup way into the governor warning on CC esc's? You don't get that ridiculous surge of power when hitting the pitch which plays havoc with your tail and gives an inconsistant feel on collective.

I think CC governor gives you way too much overhead which causes people to run bigger pinions, its no wonder people get scared when they see such big amp spikes in the logs!

For example on my Logo 600 I get the yellow warning at 2020rpm! Im now running it at 2200rpm and it still governs fine! ESC runs much cooler aswell!

Its making me wonder if this is where CC is going wrong with all the fires and what not!

Anyone else have any views on this? (bored at work).

60% of the time, it works every time!

Never tried that before. The governing issue only affects me when I'm trying to run a very low (1600) head speed on my Trex 700E. At 2100, it seems to be working fine.

I routinely go into the "red" area on the CC governor setup, and it works fine. The key is to pay attention to the "Percent Power Out" parameter in the data log. If it is spending a lot of time at 100% you don't have enough headroom. It is ok for it to clip 100% in demanding maneuvers, but if it is dwelling there for extended periods it is telling you more headroom is needed.
