I have a SAB 770 that I am trying to setup. I'm using a vbar controller, Castle Edge 160HV ESC, and a standard vbar pro 6.0.7. I am using the vbar as my egovernor. I think I am missing something. In the TX it shows banks 1, 2 and 3 working with the set RPM's. But when I done a test flight, the head speed never changed when switching the banks. I checked the ESC set up that vbar recommended and it was correct. I got into the Gov Info on the vcontroller and it shows the banks to be working but the throttle ramp only goes to 69 high and -63 low on all three banks. Not sure if this is my problem but nothing I do changes this. How do I change the high/low value or does anyone have an idea what the problem might be to allow the banks to work in flight. Thanks for any suggestions.

Show me how you setup the ESC. What link did you use to set up the ESC? Also where are your endpoints?

Gov
First you have to set it up 4 vbar gov.
After that you have to callibrate your endpoints.
The external white cable have to be in the gov sensor slot on the correct way.
I assume your erc setup is correct if you fallowd the protocol on the vstabi site how to set up castle erc...

I set up the ESC on the vcontroller under Castle ESC and followed the vstabi instructions. I spooled the motor up as shown on a youtube video to setup the end points and set them to 93 / 93 but there was not change in the banks for the gov so I went to 100 / 100 and no change in the gov with this setting either. I have it setup as vbar egov.

Gov
I think You do not have to set it up in the vcontrol as castle, you have to do that if you want to fly the castel on his onwn gov.
If you go to gov setup you do just the endpoints and thats it,
That is how i did it.
I have an castle 160 hv on an neo -vcontr
And i fly the vbar gov and it is an verry good gov in compred to the castle gov that you always have to overgear to have the write head speed.

Do you mean just set it as other ESC and set the end points and not set as Castle ESC?

If you are running the VBAR gov, the endpoints stay at 100/100
