The problem is that the instruction manual that came with the GV1 is a
little bit "weak".
I have set up a governor for a friend at the field today, and the procedure
you have followed is correct. When you reach the flashing "idl" again, your
The menu for the throttle-limit is working like this: it start with idle
("idl" flashing-set the trottle stick and trim to the idle position) press
either + or - data key.The idl-sign will be steady for a short moment, then
the menu goes to full- and then engine cut settings (repeat as for idle) .
When you have set the engine-cut pisotion, it will be were you started; with
the "idl" flashing.
The settings are now memorized in the GV1. Move on to set the gear-ratio,
rpm and so on. Then you are ready to go flying!
Note:The only indication you will get if you have done something wrong, like
for example the engine-cut is set above the idle, you will see "err" in the
diplay. If this happen, start from the beginning.
Hope this helps.
