Hiya.
How can I tell if I got the pitch/throttle setup alright?
What can be said about the behaviour of a heli with a headspeed that is too low or too high?

Thanks. Have a nice weekend.

the headspeed affects the overall performance of a heli... with a high headspeed i found my raven to be very touchy.. i lowered the throttle and raised the pitch a bit for normal flight mode, worked much better. had a more stable feel to it as well. if youre throttle/pitch setup is all good you will have a constant RPM (the engine sounds the same at both hover and full throttle, no increase or decrease in rotor speed) you can usually tell how it is performing, if you can hear and see the blades speed up as you move the throttle, you need to either add more pitch or take away some throttle, depending on your setup and preferences. its all a fine tuning experience.
