Why a Futaba GY 701 cannot be adapted when all the parameters are already there.
Hi John .
Is it ok if I come to visit you and Rick around Bensen days ?? You eagle eyed flyer!!!!!.
Ps. I will ring you soon.
Luciano, it's a great little device, and should be able to work. I've just not had the luxury of purchasing one, and testing it. What has stopped me is that I have not found a digital servo with slipper clutch. To me, this is important.
Unfortunately, the actuator drive signals are not the same. The GY-701 outputs an RC PDM "position command" signal, the actuators we have to drive directly off a PWM duty cycle signal.
I just joined this forum a few minutes ago and this is my first post. I have to say... I love it! Seems like a great group of people.
I currently have a 162F piston ship but plan on building an under-slung turbine (T62T-32) ship very soon. I'm just not a fan of the JetExec conversion kits out there as they seemed to have quite a few issues. Some of which have been updated/corrected but, I'm still not a fan of having the turbine mounted so high. There's a guy that's a few hours away from me that's building an amazing under-slung turbine Rotorway. He's building 2 of them and I'm hoping to buy one of them within the next few weeks.
When I first got into flying helo's I started in a R44 (@ $485/hr! ). After my 8th or 9th hour I purchased my Rotorway because I could I build my time for a fraction of the cost. So far I have zero regrets!
Right after I bought my ship I was hell bent on adding a governor but my instructor begged me not to. He said I would become a much better pilot without it (and he was right). After I was more comfortable he said it would be fine to add a governor.
After doing some research online I found this post. There's a lot of great information/suggestions within this post but I noticed that nobody has posted anything recently. Is anyone able to provide any updates on their governor?
