It depends on which Trex 600E.

The older ones will hover/fly fine at 1800 RPM (you can put less firm dampers in them for lower RPM, prior to the onset of nodding).

I usually run about 2000-2100 for 3D (smooth 3D) on my 600's.

Some of the newer ones with solid dampers may nod at lower RPM.

Some of the newer ones have the tails geared for higher head speeds (i.e. you need higher head speeds in order to maintain tail authority).

Each are ok....

What you'll have to adjust, via pitch curves, is when you switch from "normal" to "idle-up"....you don't want your heli to "jump" vertically.....match the pitch curve to the idle-up for your particular setup.

Like to hear the head speed increase, when switching to idle-up....without the hover altitude change...
