finally got my cal 5 tuned up and flying good! the only thing im concerned about is the headspeed, so i figured i would ask you guys and see what you think. currently i am running about 1800 on normal mode, around 1950 on idle 1, and 2100 on idle 2. it flys great at these speeds i am just a little concerned that they are too high, but the heli seems to like it cause when i tried to lower the headspeed it wanted to start wiggling and shaking a little bit, but as soon as i bumped the headspeed back up its as smooth as silk! i just want to make sure im not going to damage anything by running the headspeed that high. any personal experience input would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

It should be fine. I've ran my Caliber5 at that headspeed, but I prefer to fly at 1950.

What you're flying is fine, nothing's going to explode or let go. Those are very typical RPMs for C5.
