Cause its a lot of information, and a little specific to your heli/engine/needs getting direct help is the best. I just had a buddy at the field tweak my idle up curves and man it made a big difference. So get help if possible.

Another well illustrated explanation is here:

Hmmmm....Think of it like using a clutch with a manual transmission. You are adding just enough throttle to keep the headspeed steady as the pitch increases. Too much and the clutch slips (overspeed) and not enough and the engine bogs (loss of headspeed). Not a very accurate analogy but it may help some.

I understand the concept but I realized that setting up a perfect curve requires a certain amount of flying ability. So I used the Raptor technique curves and added a governor so I don't have to worry about it much.

After a few more gallons this spring I'll retune them some in an effort to gain a better backup curve and maybe improved gov performance now that I learned about feedforward.
