Setting up gov mode on smile 40-6-12

Can someone help me with the set up of the Kontronik 40-6-12 speed control for my voyager. Is this possible with a JR 652 radio. I tried to use the stunt trim but it does not allow me to adjust the rpms, it just goes to full throttle, thanks.

I don't know the 652 but you have to ajust the ATV of the channel you use... thus, limitting the travel.

you can put, as exemple 75% atv, so when you switch your flight mode, it's like giving 75% throttle

maybe this channel of your radio is not capable of doing ATV but... I would think it can... otherwise use another channel

Not sure if the ATV will work since you must set up the ESC with 100% travel.

After setup you adjust to the % you want for flight HS.

If you use the ATV for that, the ESC will not see 0% and will not arm.

I don't know for the JR 652, but it could let the lower atv at 0% and adjust only the high point one...

hope he will be able to use de governor function... it's some much better with it

The governor function is working but now I am getting a violent tail bobbing(oscillation). I am using an Ikarus "profi" heading lock gyro and it doesn't seem to matter where I set the sensitivity, it won,t stop banging up and down. Oh, and by the way I am using a Hacker C40 11S and stock pinion on 8 cells. Any suggestions?

The sensitivity on the profi gyro (as well as every other jumper) are read once when you power up. After this if you modify the sensitivity, you have to turn it off, wait couples of second and apply power again to retest.

You can have remote gain on this gyro if you have a spare channel.

BTW: It's not a super-duper gyro... I put it away because I was not thrusting it while going backward...

I'll put it on a smaller heli like my hornet
