Setting up a logo 550sx with a Kontronik Jive 100lv. This is my first time using a Kontronik esc and need some help. Can I use the vbar gov with this esc and do I have to use some sort of rpm sensor. Currently I have it setup with the Jive gov, but its not displaying any rpm data on the Vcontrol. Which I assume is because there is no sensor coming off the Jive the way a YGE does. Any help would be appreciated.

No you can't.

The 100LV can only use its own governor but it is very good and holds the headspeed very well.

If you do get a phase sensor then you will be able to see the commanded headspeed on the tx eliminating the need for a tacho.

So to control the headspeed I just put in the 3 headspeeds I require say 1600 1800 and 2000 and thats it, even though it will not display the current headspeed on the transmitter. Or do you have to set some sort of throttle end point, which I dont think you can do on the Vcontrol.

You would set this value in the Gov output. Pick from 0-100 just like your old flat curves

Team Synergy, Team FBL Rotors-------if its not broke...it will be!
