View Full Version : Heli governor on electrics

In 4.5 if you run governor on a electric heli it will be very inconsistent RPM/surging with tailwag as result.
Workaround is to run without governor, and make a good battery with very flat discharge curve and low Internal Resistance.
But it should be looked at, should work with governor...

This is borderline off topic, but I actually kind of like the tail wag in 4.5. It seems to better simulate what my 450s have always been like. Pop the collective hard and it goes to the left just a little bit. Bigger helis don't seem to do this, but on the little stuff, at least for me, it's important to have just a little bit of imperfection in there. It keeps me on my toes. :)
Good tip though! If my next 450 has no tail kick at all, I'll be sure to give this a shot. :)

Im not talking about tail loosing at hard punchouts (that can be arranged with poor tailblades or poor main to tail rotor ratio), im talking about fast wag, but in reality, if you look at the real RPM while in editor mode, you will see it pulse fast.

Ah, got ya.
Yeah I did notice that too on a couple birds. Kind of annoying... :)
