High or Low Gov mode on CCP-10 controller


Hello All:

My Question is:

I have a B20-36S on my Pic-Pro and I'm using the CC-P-10 controller.

Should I run the controller at Low Governer or High Governer setting on the P-10?

Any suggestion would be great.

I'll probaly try both, but just want to know if high or low is better from others.

Thanks
James

You may find that motor a little underpowered
A B20 31s is better
Alternative is the Model Motors AC1215/20
Mega power from the B20 18L (but chews thru batteries)
Make sure ALL cutoffs are disabled or at lowest setting on the Phoenix if you are to use in a heli.

Everyone recomends using the low mode becasue it gives better resolution, but I couldn't get above 1100 rpms with mine so I switched to the high mode, it seems to be working fine???

Low Gov


Thanks for the input .

I have it set for Low Gov. Seems to be working just fine.
Dont know exact rpm as I don't have anyone to Tach the head for me.

But it sure fly's with plenty of power...

Thanks again...

The Phoenix does seem to behave differently depending on the software versions.

Glad you got it up and running, I only suggested it might be a bit underpowered as i had previously tried that motor but it did'nt have enough guts for my liking.

Well as a rough guide you could strap the heli down and tach it at 0 pitch. this should give you an indication of what it is.

Or if your brave (stupid enough) you can hold it in your hand and tach it that way. I have used this method before but it IS better if you have a friedn who can hold the tach and read off the numbers as you fiddle with the throttel curves.
