Default Governor/Rev Limiter

Was just looking at the Spektrum DSMX Heli Receiver with Rev Limiter for my new 600 Nitro....does this take the place of the governor?

Or if I get this receiver will it interfere with a governor?

Thanks in advance

This will run in place of a governor. It works wonderfully. The MultiGov Pro, considered the best Gov available by many, has a rev limiter mode that will allow it to be used exactly the same way. Gov is slightly better in that it will monitor the low end and help reduce overspeeding, but if you fly hard you won't know the difference. 3D aces flew my 600 when the AR7100R was relatively new and told me my Gov kicks arse! They were shocked to find out it was a rev limiter. Watch Finless' vids and see how impressed he was when he reviewed the unit. It's easy to set up and it just works!

I prefer rev limiters over governors.

I set my rev limiter to certain head speed and then run a 100% flat throttle curve.

I use an AR7100R

The rev limiter does exactly that. If you preffer V curves and want to stop over speeding, rev limiter. If you just want it to hold it at your preset number, governor.

Setting a flat 100% curve with limiter will achieve the same thing as a gov providing it is working properly, if it's not, it will go full throttle on you.

Best to have a V curve set up also regardless of which one you use.
