So what do you make of the many reports of others suffering from power cut offs during flight??

I believe we are speaking for the 4.01 and v-bar. I never had a cutout but the headspeed was all over the place with the internal gov at lower throttle percentages. If I kept it around 85-90 it was okay but still not great. My average headspeed spread was around 375-400 rpm. With the v-bar gov that spread is now 100-120. Most of it is over speeding and not bogging. So for me it's a no brainer.

Sorry, I was referring to power failures with the internal governor.

Reports I've heard of were with 4.0 not 4.01. But after 50+ flights with this setup and zero issues I'm convinced it's the ticket.

Extremely happy and worry free for me.

Thatís probably relates to the start power issue. They are probably making major changes so thatís why itís taking so long.

That was a 4.00 issue. We have not seen the problem with 4.01.

I think that's because 4.01 was released to fix this problem.

I agree that the above issue was fixed. I've seen that issue first hand, a buddy of mine that I fly with experienced it in the air on his T450. He upgraded to 4.01 and was experiencing a totally different issue, for no reason what so ever the LVC would kick in on fully charged packs in mid air. He down graded to 3.X and everything is working now.

I have had the problem with both 4.00 and 4.01, I rolled back 3.27 and everything is fine. I am switching the castle out now and replacing with a Hawk 120HV + Vbar governor which is what I run in my other HV heli with great results.
