Wondering if anyone has tested the vbar rescue feature with low head speeds and what kind of results it's yielding.

lots of assembly required

I cannot speak for the NEO, but lower head speeds do not affect my Diabolo@1400rpm with Bavarian Demon rescue, and it will work at lower if the setup is correct for that RPM.

The terms HHS and LHS are relative and misused these days.
Correct RPM is whatever the hell one needs for the task at hand.

For my 700:
hover 1200-1500
Sport flying 1500-1850
3D 1600-1900
Speed >2650

It still blows me away to see some of the head speeds being used especially on bigger ships. I can still hear echoes of my FB Raptor 50 running at 2000ish and just waiting for it to scatter lol.

I should have been more descriptive but my reference to LHS was regarding 700 size and up scalers. I'm hearing of a lot of these running at 1200-1500 (roughly) but was curious more than anything as to what HS is too low for rescue to work.

Do you guys have any recommendations for HS on a 700 size 2 bladed head scale bird ? (with some breathing room on available power/collective)

Recommendations all depend a great deal with the amount of weight involved. Obviously for a scale applications the lower head speed the better but it still must be easy to fly. Can you run bigger blades than 700's?[
What weight are you trying to get airborn and with what size and cell count lipos? My dedicated 6 cell Align V2 700 does most things happily (at least for what I do) at 1300 head speed. From my experience what ever head speed you settle on (6S) gear it so that is the top speed and run at 100% throttle. This maybe different if you use a esc with free wheeling which I have no experience with. Using 12 cell will open up a lot of possibilities but you will be carrying twice the weight. Then there is the option of running 7 or 8 or 9 cells.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

As it stands I have no RTF weight data as the project is still in the early stages and not much time to progress.

I do plan to run 12S on a CC edge 120HV / Align 750-450KV motor and 164/13 or 14 main and pinion gear in trex 600 clone mechanics with a Roban 700 size Bell 206 JR. I plan to install a scale cockpit and scale lighting but will have to approximate all up weight when I can find time to weigh most of the components.

The airframe is still a fair piece from test flying but the only main blades I have currently are the Align 3gx (flybarless) 690's.

I'll post more info when available
