I tried my first flight on the 500 with the governor and almost crashed the heli. The headspeed was a lot higher than indicated in the software! It just kept increasing the headspeed and must have gotten close to 3.000 😱 before I pulled throttle hold and managed to bring it down safely.

After that I did some more testing but the heli flew good only at about 2.100 headspeed, over that it started making strange noises. I tested the belt tension and there was no tension whatsoever. My guess is the belt is gone and at higher headspeeds it was touching the boom. I am lucky no serious damage happened, but I am not looking forwared to taking off the side frame to change the belt.
