If I change gear ratio do I need to calibrate the governor again?

Recently I change my gear ratio from 9.33 to 10.62 I kept all previews settings nothing change and I flew tested and it flies well minor adjustments on the governor gain after a couple of tested.

I was just wandering if re-calibration was mandatory when gear ratio is changed.

Any clarification will be appreciated much.

Not knowing what kind of governor you are using or how you are picking up the speed reading, I would say yes. Everyone I have used always asks for the gear ratio. By the way, there is a forum for governor questions that might help you more.

I'm going to make a bold assumption and assume you're using the ikon gov, which is why you posted here ;-)

If that's the case, then my understanding is that the calibration is for endpoints and throttle hold. If all you did was change the gearing, and you put in those new values in to Advanced Menu-Common-Governor-Setup, then you should be good.

if it ain't broke, break it.

Yes I'm using the ikon governor. I did the throttle calibration in the begging of the initial setup using the 9.33 gear ratio. So now that I did the change to 10.62 gear ratio I was just wandering if it was need it again.

Thank you much for your help!!
