Flyers who own both nitro and electric, do you find that the amount of pitch you have to run on a electric is less than the nitro of the same size?

I recently converted a raptor to electric. Found that on the electric heli, the insane but consistent headspeed will make the tail blow out when there is too much collective pitch like the typical +/-13degree we run on nitro helis. Dropping the collective to something along +/-12 or so will greatly increase the tail hold ability during "pop" but yet still maintain, if not better, the amount of collective power that a nitro has at higher pitch. Do you experience the same thing?

P.S. Let not get into a "nitro or electric is better" debate.

I usually run 10 in Idle 1 and 12 in Idle 2 for wet or dry helis.

I run -13/0/+13 on all my E helis. Gaui 200, Furion 450, Trex 600e, and a Trex 700e. Works fine everytime
