Until I got my AS350 done, I flew my Jet Ranger (550EFL) way too fast, like in your example. The origninal 600EFL Pro (mechanics in the AS350) would do well over 100 mph and the body really didn't slow it down very much at all. When I looked at the video I posted, critically, I saw that the heli was way too fast looking and have since slowed it down a lot. Now really, when a 350 is in full forward cruise, it is going over 150 mph but there is no reason that the model should be going that fast, lol. I am trying to keep it around 30 to 45 mph at the most but I need to find some video of the real heli so I can see how it relates to the model. Take care.
