Either we need a good pilot for a demo, or the thing is inherently tame. A pity Nine Eagles can't borrow Alan Szabo from Align!
I think the pilots are holding back, even the much smaller Solo Pro can fly faster in stock form. Might be these helis are samples, and since spare parts are not widely available, people are very careful not to break it on the maiden...
In the first vid in this topic you see a snippet of the heli going into FFF and even that snippet shows faster performance than what is shown here.
Might also be the links are still on the short balls on the swash, reducing cyclic throw.
