Ok here is the question.

With Futaba servos do I choose a Throttle Jockey or Multigov? Will be fitted to Hirobo Turbulence D3v2.

I do like the setup screen with the Multigov. Would use a GV1 if I could get one. I have a GY701 but I'm not a big fan.

What is it about the 701 gov you don't like that you think the GV-1 surpass? The 701 gov is 4 times faster.

The 701 governor is what you should use. I don't have a 701, but it is the same as in the CGY750 from what I heard. The CGY750 is by far the best nitro governor I've ever used.

Governor choice is not determined by who made your servo.

The ThrottleMax works well and you can program it to work as a governor or as a limiter. MA also has an automatic glow driver that works with the device and has some neat features.

Ok i may have to go with the 701 then. I may grow to love it.

Is the backplate sensor better or the standard sensor?

Either appropriately set up works just fine. You will be very pleased with the 701 gov.

Based on the pictures I have seen the model is flybarless.

If your model is flybarless why would you want to carry an extra gyro and that external programming box just for the governor function?

Thanks guys for the opinions.

I am using a Microbeast Plus HD which doesn't have an on board governor. I wanted a govenor with a screen and one that can accept futaba plugs without trimming.

I will be buying a GY701.

Why not sell the the Microbeast and get a GY750, the best of both, all in one package, less wiring. plus all Futaba and if you have a Futaba RX with S-Bus, even better.

+1

The CGY750 has really been improved since it was originally released. Much easier to setup now. And for those who use BeastX because they don't want to have to bring a computer to the field, problem solved with the CGY750.

I am a JR XG14 DMSS user. I am only using the Futaba servos on the Turbulence because they best suited what i wanted. The CGY750 is therefore out of the question.

I hate that the manufacturers all use proprietary radio communication in their 2.4GHz systems. Makes one want to go back to 72MHz. Not really.

Since you're on JR system, I'd go with the Multigov over the Throttle Max/Jockey. I've had too many problems with Model Aviation products when I used them. No problems with Aerospire's Multigov Pro. Even the mixture worked well.

I don't get fancy governors with screens, doesn't make them work any better!

Align gov gets my vote as some of you will already know! It's the cheapest, easiest to setup, smallest/lightest, best performing (for 3D and IMO of course!) AND accepts Futaba servo plugs!

60% of the time, it works every time!

The only downside to the Align governor is it was designed for use with the Align 2-in-1 as the specs state a 6volts input.

In this HV age unfortunately it looks like it will require some for of step down.

Other than that I have seen a few in operation and they appear to be as good as any other.

Mine is a straight 2 cell Lipo.
I have an Align governor running straight off a 2 cell lipo and no problems.
