Finally put a tach on it.
I use an optical airplane tach stuck in the ground. I hover just above it and look at the rpms.
It was 2000.
I had just cranked up the RPMS around hover pitch before the flight.
I might turn it down to 1900.

Hi Melnic, thanks for all the info and video, got my E550 packaged with ESC and Hacker motor. Just want a smooth fun heli for mild 3D and night flying, 550's are available from MS Composite. I also like the charger info and will go the ZIPPY route also. Anxious to get mine done soon.

Update:
After flying the e550 at 2000 rpms for the past few weeks, I think I'll leave it as it. This thing is so stable and relaxing to fly, gonna leave it as is. I fly my Raptor .30 V1 down at 1750RPMS and it flies fine but w/ the big 5000mAh 6S in this e550, gonna leave it at 2000 for the forseable future.

I'm flying my 450 electrics on calmer days and the Nitro or e550 on windy days (15mh+)
Other than a difference between upwind/downwind groundspeed, not much I notice w/ the e550.
I'm just doing sport flying w/ it right now so it's very stable and relaxing.

What is your flight time at 2000 rpm? I'm flying mine at 2100 and it's so fun to fly also. I think I like it BETTER than my eRaptor 710 now. Just wish I could get a 10 min flight out of this thing.

You ever weigh yours ready for flight including battery Melnic?

Have not weighed it yet. Good idea.
I'm flying about 7-8 minutes and pulling 3500-4000mAh out of the 5000mAh pack
