Default Koby 55 gov question...

I have the koby 55 set up in my blade 450 3d. I adjusted my end points and I'm in mode 4. With my throttle curve at a flat 90% my HS is at 2850.

I know the manual recommends a min thottle of 80% for the gov but is there a higher limit also? I know this heli should be able to spin slightly above a 3k HS. Am I ok with trying a thottle setting above 90?

Thanks!

The higher you go the less headroom you have for governing, sounds like you need to go the next size up on the pinion. exceeding 90% is not going to give the governor much room to work with.

Got it. So in a perfect world it would be best to be around 80% and play with your pinion size to get tune the head speed?

Thanks!
