    It will go to a gyro IF you want to use the governor in your gyro. I would HIGHLY SUGGEST you just use the built in governor in the hobbywing ESC. It is a great governor, no reason not to use it.

    All that wire is for is head speed telemetry, I believe. If your FBL unit has an rpm sensor port that's what that wire is for. Its an rpm sensor.


    As tony said the hobby wing is a great governor and there really is no reason to use anything else. Unless you really want to.

    Spoiler alert, in the SAB Goblin 380 video that is coming out Friday, I talk about that wire briefly and why I'm not using it.

    When you get her already to fly, will you make a video of the SAB Goblin 380 in action?

    Hey Baz. It depends on how you and the heli fly's as one. If I'm correct, URI likes the v curve as my self I like the straight curves. My Gaui X3L is straight 85 on mode 1, straight 95 mode 2. My 450 is straight 83 mode 1, straight 88 mode 2. My 500 is straight 85 on mode 1, straight 90 on mode 2. These are just my example of my settings. Hope this gives you an idea :).

    V curve is for a non governed head speed. It was something that was started by nitro pilots before governors were introduced. This setup reduces the amount of bog the heli has during hard maneuvers.

    If your running a governor (esc based or FBL based) you should be running a flat throttle curve.

    Use the manual.

    So down and dirty, pitch curve is 0 25 50 75 100.

    Throttle is tricky. It depends on which mode you use. I personally suggest gov sto mode. After you set that then unplug and plug in the esc. With the throttle stick at 50% let the heli spool up and sit there for 30 seconds or so. Cut the throttle or hit throttle hold. Unplug and replug in battery and your done.


    Your throttle curve will be 60 60 60 60 60, 70 70 70 70 70, 80 80 80 80 80,.... Pick any 2 variations you want and set them to iu 1 and 2. Now your throttle curve number will correlate to a head speed. You may need to tach your head to get that number. A dx6i does not ha e telemetry. So getting your head speed on the radio may not happen.
