Have you ever think on a sell price?

Any chance you're going to paint it yellow?

with my calibre, with either 32 or 37, stock exhaust or not, ive found it really hard to set the throttle curve, for some reason i need to set the revs at say mid point as low as 35 - 40 percent otherwise it spins the blades far too fast(nhp), dont have any way of measuring the exact rpm, but if i used say 100 80 70 80 100 with 10 deg both ways it would be dangerous, I find I can set 50 percent in the middle, going up to probly 70 at full stick, but I grit my teeth at how fast it revs even then, problem I find is that the blades either way too fast or if i slow em down then the helicopter bogs down in bank turns, I think maybe a governor is the way to go.
Dont know why but when ever ive set up a 50 size, it seems that a normal throttle curve say 100 75 50 75 100 is fine and then you can either speed it up abit or slow it down to how you like it, seems odd that i cant take advantage of the full range of the motor when its a 30.

Perhaps you really need to have someone tach your head. What you "think" is too fast, may be juuuuuuuusssssst right.

My V-curve in my 37 powered Caliber 30s is something like 100 - 70 - 100 and not only is the helicopter quite happy at that setting, it runs about 2000- 2100 RPM on the head and bogging is not a problem.

Might want to also take a long close look at your pitch curves. Especially if a 32 at 10 degrees is turning the head so fast that you worry about it coming apart. The 32 struggles at 10 degrees pitch, 9 is about all it can handle.
