It's an odd situation... While my R50 is heavy and doesn't make power like an electric, and the R30 is far less powerful, weighs the same as a 50 and only has 550 blades, I find I don't have to manage collective that much. There isn't that much pitch. In fact there is no pop in the model at all and you have to readjust to moving the sticks to their extremes to get the model to move. Doing any acrobatics with an R30 requires touching the stick stops often.
It's mostly down to the gear ratio (9.56) on the 30 and 8.5 on the 50. This means that with a screaming os37 your lucky to get 1900 rpm, 1900 rpm and 10 degrees of pitch on 550 blades doesn't take all that much power which is why you can 'JCB' the sticks a bit!

I did an easy head mod on my Raptor 50 to get 13 degrees of pitch, that might give your 30 a bit more pop.
