Using a GV1 and carbon paddles / blades,
some recommend headspeeds around 1780-1800 but I find mine flys better for me at 1880-1900 for 3d, there are flyers that run even higher,
2k +.
Less than that and the cyclic / power seems too slo for tight manuvers esp with the stock paddles.
The lower speeds work good for basic flying and aeros.

Is 1990 not too high for the engine? What would a tt50 take and still run happily?

I don't know about the TT, but the OS with 8.5 gearing is happy.

I think I'll have to try the 1990, I tried 1950 but it didn't seem to flip any better, oh well what's the worst that can happen?
