General questions on use of Governor in Nitro .
I have never used a Governor before but have over the years bought NIB governors (Futaba GV -1 ) and CSM Revlock 10 and basically stored them away .Rather than learning about setting up these governors here , I just would like to know in general terms 1) How to set the throttle curves in N/Idle 1 /Idle 2 ? Is it just exactly the same as if I did not have the governor ?
2) Can I turn off the governor before or during flight if I don't like it ?
3) If the governor is set to say 1950 head speed for a 60 size bird in normal flight mode,does that mean if it's turned on , even at low throttle on the ground ,it 's already going to 1950 head speed? Or do you flip to governor mode once it gets into a hover?
Thanks a lot .

I'm no authority on the subject..but I have set up and used Gov's on nitro heli's successfully..here's how I did it..#1..read and understand the manual..and or website info that the mfg. provides..#2..do searches on heli sites for specific info on the brand/model of gyro you have.You should be able to get enough info..and you could meet up with some other pilots and get some hands on help..I always used to set up the Gov. to come on in flight mode one and have about 1700 head speed..you could tell that the unit had come on before taking off and then have your higher head speed come on in mode two. hope this helps ya!I do a great decending funnel!

The govenor enables above 25% throttle. You can set the speed to your flight mode switch so you can have multiple speeds. You can set the govenor to the off position as well. Every govenor I have used is pretty well documented for the setup.

Thanks for the replies. So basically the throttle curves are just the same for each flight mode as if there was no governor? What would happen if a magnet flicked off in flight? So it go back to the baseline curves?

The curves will only work if the govenor is off or inoperable otherwise it will regulate to the speeds you configure it for.

If you use a rev limiter then you can use your curves and limit the overspeed.

These pics of my radio settings might help a little..if you lose one of your magnets in flight you will be falling back on your programmed curves..I have used TJ pro gov's only and really liked them.

Use of governor to regulate "money expenses"

I like to fly with my throttle and pitch curves.
I expended a lot of time "fine tuning" this two curves to get a pleasant flights.

But, let me tell you something.
On this difficult time with the economy, I do activate my gv1's...

All the curves remains the same. The tricky thing is to get similar rpm with and without governor when you flip the switch.

Your rc helis are going to get more flight time with same amount of glow. Your wallet would be very happy.

One thing... You need to get use to have Your finger on the throttle hold switch because A crash with a governor activated is mortal.

Depending on the governor what they want to know is which speed to use or what requested head speed to use. In either case the throttle curve is normally a straight line.

The throttle value needs to be a single value else the governor will see a varying value and will change the head speed accordingly. i.e. not governed.

I kinda messed up in my earlier post..I set up my Gov. to come on in Normal flight mode..to 1700 so I could hear that the gov. had come on and 1700 was fine for flying around to get the engine warmed up..I had 1950 set for Stunt 1 and stunt 2 and you can see that in the percentage values in the pics I posted..I flew a few yrs. without a governed headspeed but I found that learning certain manuvers were easier to learn when I installed a governor.I do a great decending funnel!
