I am running a Graupner 360 with 3:1 gear box powered by 2400 NiMH 7.2 volt battery in this freighter.

Is there a way to put a governor in the system so that when my grandson controls the model he can run it fast?

I am not electronically apt so I am asking you who know such things.

the short answer is YES! however it may be a little more difficult than your willing to undertake I guess you want to allow some one to select full throttle but have limited speed. Depending on your transmitter you may be able to have dual rates on throttle. if not read this article its a walk through on retro fitting dual rates on throttle.
