Default Curtis Total G Governor Issue

Hello,

I am currently utilizing a Curtis Total G (bought used from member
on RR) and I notice that it does something peculiar. When the governor is active it keeps the RPM's steady but upon detecting a change in RPM on the high side, it seems to overcompensate and
brings the rpm's way down. Then the throttle has to be "coaxed" up to get the rpms back up. This is in normal mode.

The magnet is mounted to the fan housing and I've checked the pickup to make sure it's being detected via the software. Hardware setup seems to be fine.

Total G is mounted on a Pantera 50 with OS 50 Hyper motor.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Where can the Total G be sent to be tested??

Thanks!!!
