I was wondering if someone could give me an idea of what kind of head speed I should be running on the 550 ? I'm using pinion that came with and the red motor 1:1. Right now I'm turning 2200 and 2300. Thanks

What headspeed you should be running depends on your flying style or personal preference. Some people like doing 3D at 1500 RPM. It does sound really cool and you get longer flight times. Others think that more is always better and push the limits of the blades trying to get to 3000 RPM.

Yeah I dont like screaming head speed cuz I'm no means a pro. I try to find a happy medium. I just wanted to know basically what head speed is prefers for that size machine. I'm really surprised with it. Its really a nice little heli and you cant beat the price

Hey Dave that's exactly my setup 2200 and 2300. Mainly at 2200 and it flys great ! I'm really loving this 550. Like I said I'm getting over 6 minutes of flight time. Its awsome !

I run 2300 at the moment and it's very quick. This is a very light Heli so an extremely high rpm is really not needed. I had a Gaui X5 and I used to run 2450 and I honestly feel this Xlpower 550 is faster at 2300 rpm.
