I'm having to run less than 30% on throttle for Normal headspeed, and not much more for idle1. Is this going to damage my Jive or Pyro?
Jive 80+HV, pyrp 700-52, 5100 12S, ENV
I'm looking for around 1500 Normal and 1750 idle1.

I have been told the Jive likes to be above 50% on throttle, Why not change the gearing?

Because as far as I am aware there is no choice with the helical gears on the ENV, I think I'd have to change the motor, and that's expensive.

I Didn't know what heli you had. Not really sure what will happen, if anything!

Did u calibrate the endpoints? 12T?

With a 500KV mine is about 2000 @ 80% w/12T.

If the system isn't getting hot, I would think u should be ok.

End points calibrated.
I'm fairly sure I'm 12T, but it is some months since I built it.
The motor is barely warm after 8 minutes, the packs are cold. I can't remember the sums I did in any detail and my PC with the notes died.
I'm a little concerned I'm running too low and I don't want to damage motor or ESC.

Is the Jive still cold after your flights? I would have to think that if its not too warm, then you may be OK.
Maybe someone with a little more experience with the Jive will chime in.

We've been using the jive for precision flying. I've hovered mine for 10-12 minutes at a time with the curves in this type range with no problems @ 1500. As long as your system keeps from getting hot, I don't think you will have a problem.
