Default Setting Governed Headspeed

Can someone explain to me the step by step procedure on setting the headspeed on a GAUI X2 with Microbeast and Kontronik Minijazz 20 ESC.

So far all I know is that the reccomended max headspeed for X2 according to GAUI is 4400 rpm and that you have to set it with blades at 0 degs pitch and with a flat throttle curve in the Transmitter, 100-100-100.

I'm thinking there is a discrepency on how to set the governor on the kontronik because I cant figure out how to keep the pitch at 0 unless I go into setup on my microbeast and program zero pitch range just so I can properly set my goverened headspeed.

How did you guys do it?

i always program on the ground, holding the heli over my head, or if you have a bench you can tie it to it..
-I set the IDLE2 to flat 100 and then hit hold
-I set the collective to 0, choose IDLE2 and l remove the hold.
- wait until the esc learns the speed

+1 and you need to do this on each startup, as the gov never saves RPM (it learns the speed you want at each spin up).

Is there a Gaui setup page or something where you got this info? I'd like to see that. There isn't much setup info. in the X2 manual--it's barely in english anyway...

The stock esc of X2 (22A) doesn't have governor mode. Those guys are using other escs..
