why its good to have T & P curves even with a gov

So, in my Radikal I have installed the GV-1, and its my first go with a governor.
Tonight I was back at the field flying the heli, and it was going quite well. I had fine tuned my throttle/picth curves to fly very nicely, and I was doing a bunch of maneuvers testing out the heli to make sure it wasnt bogging down.
It seemed to be running well, maybe not 100% as steady as before but I flew two 15 minute flights.
When I landed, I noticed my governor pickup hanging down... it seems the pickup came off the mount bracket and wasnt even on!
Seeing as how my pitch and throttle curves were pretty well set up, I didnt even notice.
If I had not set them up, probably would have lost the machine.

Good point Andrew.
Another pointer is to know how to turn it off in an emergency. If you are in trouble that o'l governor will just keep the RPM set to the dialed in rate even when you bottom the collective. Practice reaching for the Throttle hold or whatever switch you have it slaved to to turn it off.
