Default Enabling governor & other BLHeli setting on 230 S V2

I just wrote up a guide on enabling the governor on the Blade 230 S V2. It also works for the Fusion 270. Thanks to ridge-runner for telling me how to do it. Credit goes to him.

You'll need an Arduino or a dedicated BLHeli connector/adapter, both of which you can buy online. If you're lucky you have an old Arduino unused and unloved lying around like I did.

You'll be voiding any warranty you may have had. You could also hurt your heli, yourself, or someone else by doing this.

The complete guide is here: https://helisanity.com/enabling-gove...v2-via-blheli/

I'm sure it's full of silly typos. Haven't had chance to carefully proofread it yet.

Here's a teaser:



Maybe I'll condense that full guide into something more manageable later tonight, but for now you just get that link and the picture.

If you see something that needs adding or something that needs fixing, let me know here or comment on the guide page itself.

Instead of arduino you can grab these too.

Its cool when people figure out how to do this kind of thing, but, why would I want to do so; to what benefit?

I used it to enable the governor so that I could have constant headspeed.

The 230s is so under powered, I doubt it would do so. I was hoping there were some more RPMs in there some where. It was rumoured the V2 ESC had more powere, but guess not.

So after the governor is enabled how does it work? Does it capture and hold a given head speed based on a straight line throttle curve in idle up?

I’ll see about posting a with-gov and without-gov comparison video. Need to find time to fly first.

No, no..... don't need a flight comparison. I mean for purposes of set up and implementation, does to work around a straight line curve and hold whatever rpm that throttle output provides within the limitations of motor kv and gearing?

All I can say is that one of my 230's has a larger Turnigy motor fitted. If I bang in a load of pitch it will rotate a lot before the tail catches up. I tried a longer tail boom but it made no difference. I also get a lot less flight duration over my std 230 and I think the tail is generally more twitchy. For the type of flying I do a more powerful motor is not the way to go. I think there are much better full on 3D heli's out there but for me the 230 rules as it suits me to down to the ground.
