Anyone using the Robird G31 with a Stator Gator on a gasser? Can I use the Robird gov instead of the Stator Gator? Any info is appreciated greatly!

Mine fall down, went BOOM!!

From my understanding the Robird G31 is a flybarless control system without a governor. The Stator Gator only replaces the sensor that a governor needs to sense engine rpm So one will not help the other nor work together. Use a GV-1 with the SG.

The Robird does have a Gov but I believe at this time it works for electric helis only. I would go to Robirdusa.com and ask the question there. They speak english!!

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Interesting info there so it can work.

geomecc ,,I have had no tail or any holding problems with the Robird but it is on a very smooth electric 450not a nitro. Maybe you should check your vibration analysis feature and see whats up after a flight.

G31
So what I'm getting here is that it probably won't work on a gasser with or without a Stator Gator???

it should work follow directions in the link.the stator gator should work. u might need to make a jumper from the red wire on the sg lead that has the servo plug to the reciever to boost the power to the stator gator.

as far as I have been able to figure out, the Stator gator was designed to work with the GV1. Whether it works with other FBL units is more or less random. I have seen numerous posts that it works with vbar for example.

The question of whether a governor will work with a gasser is a separate question from how to get the RPM signal.

The safest method to get an RPM signal is to use the sensor that came with (or is available for)your governor. They need to pick up a magnet spinning by. There are various options. You can put the magnets on the clutch bell or you can try to get a signal from the magnet in the flywheel if you have an RC type engine. This for sure works with the Futaba GV1 sensor because I am doing just that.

The RPM signal input to a governor is not a universal standard. The SG puts out one particular pulse which may or may not match what the governor is expecting to see.

Whether the control loop parameters in the give work well for a gasser is a separate issue. Most governors out there were designed for higher RPM nitro engines. The Align gov has a range of something like 10,000 to 20,000 RPM. That lower limit might be little high for a gasser depending on your gear ratio. I have seen posts though using the Align gov on a gasser but without any details.

u could use the lower end of those governors like the align to manage idle up hs on gassers and leave it off in norm. I'm using the sk540 gov on my bergen and it's great so far so I don't see why this one wouldn't work as well
