The 680 razor's i'm using were a bit touchy at 1600 rpm, espically when a gust of wind would come along. So i bumped the govenor down to 1400 and made things a ton easier. So just how low can i set the head speed without encountering problems?

This is propbably not a good remedy for a newbie to be using the razor blades, so, should i just wait for the FRP 680 fiberglass blades i ordered to get here?

I am not sure how low you can go, but your head shouldn't be too twitchy at 1600. Are you using any exponential on you cyclic. This will give the heli a smoother feel around center stick.

Expo bad M'Kay?

It's not that i'm encountering "PIO" or "PIS", the controls aren't twitchy, it's the heli that is. it's just the heli is not as solid as it was before when i was using the 660 woods. This may be something later on it won't even bother me, but for now it's a ton of work.

A good pilot here at our field told me these blades were called "Razor's" for a reason. I'm just trying to tone there effect down.

New blades should be here tomorrow, that is probably the answer to all my questions anyway.

weight

I am sure the weight of the blades and airfoil camber do have something to do with the feel of the machine.
