Governor main panel

Gain: Set as high as needed to get a constant headspeed. Too much gain will cause throttle pumping, too little unstable RPM.
Requested: RPM requested by the preset channel or internally fixed values.
Current: Current RPM (always use bluetooth module for analysis on running helis)
Gov active: Lights up when the governor is active, valid preset request above 0 % channel value and throttle value above -70 % needed.
Magnet: Lights up if a sensor signal is detected. Will show with little delay, so move slowly.
Full Throttle: Lights up at full throttle.
Low Limit: Lights up when the throttle servo output is at the minimum governor value (expert).
Ramp limit: Lights up when the governor reaches the limit to spool up itself and during the spool up.
Failsafe active: Lights up when no RC signal is detected. Switch to FS mode.
Bailout armed: Lights up when bailout is active and preset more than 90 % for bailout. 


Curve settings: Only available at e-Governor and nitro using standard hookup or in expert mode. Active with a given preset channel value above 0%.
Preset folder: Contains 4 preset curves.
Modification: The curve can be modified either with the mouse or entering values manually.
Blue area at the bottom: Shows the current governor minimum value.
Green line: Shows the current collective stick position.





Governor expert

In general the parameters are explained using the tooltips of the pc software.

The most important parameter here is the Minimum Gov. This is nearly as important as the gain on the main screen. Set as low as needed to get no overspeeding and at the same time as high as needed to have quick response when adding load. A proven maneuver to set this will be a rainbow. Doing a compromise, it might be better to accept some slight overspeeding during the unloaded part of the rainbow instead of too little power at the end.

The given preset buttons will set proven values as a good starting point. Take note that the values for electrics are always lower than the nitros because of the faster response on a electric drive.
