radio settings are really irrelevant.
FB or FBL?
What pitch settings for collective and cyclic?

Run the throttle at 100% with the stock pinion.

Plenty responsive when you crank up the head speed.

80% is granny territory.

+1 On headspeed and pitch. Is it an esp or pro? Esp gets crazy around 2700-2900, the pro anything above 2800. If it still slow move up 1 pinion. How are your servos? Better electronics always helps too with a solid lipo like thunder power or pulse ultras. Try a 65c lipo, should wake it up pretty nice.

Wondering how to do this myself, but is this FB or FBL? flybar I think you can use carbon fiber paddles? increase the AFR on the cyclic... my 500 feels a little sluggish all around, but it is a belt drive flybar...

+1 Tbird, throw some CY 393 stubbz on it, 0 expo, and increase cyclic pitch. That is what my instructor told me 2 yrs. ago when I started.
