Governor High or Low for Align 450MX 3400kV ?

I don't have the HW program box yet and I'm trying to figure out the instructions but I'm still having trouble with the pole count conversion (Align 450MX has 6 poles) to pick the proper governor mode and appropriate throttle percentages for a simple governed 3000 and 3200 rpm head speed for idle 1 and 2.

This is for a Trex 450 on standard 3-cell setup, 150T main gear and either a 14 or 15T pinion.

I still can be sure of myself if I need to set Gov high or Gov low?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Oh this is for a Hobby Wing 60A Platinum Pro ESC.

you can try both, but you probably want 'high' for 80% throttle and above.

So what did you go with in the end??

I have a scorpion 2221-6 4400kv that I have same ESC for, and I put governor low, and got a gutless response for a would be 'amazing' motor. Wondering if this could be the reason it was so weak.

Sorry I didn't see your post until now. I went with Gov. High, works great. I'm using 82-87-95% flat throttle curves for for Normal - idle 1 - idle2 with a 14T pinion.
