One thing you can do to reduce air speed it to reduce your pitch and swash angles to a more sedate level. Try to work with pitch angles around 7 to 8 degrees and swash to about 6 or 7. Remember that most of our scale helis do have some forward tilt in the rotor (up to 5 degrees in most but it does vary) so that at fairly low swash input levels, you should be able to move quite nicely in forward flight. I find that I am flying mostly at hover pitch setting and that if I put too much pitch in any given maneuver, the heli will really start to boggie. Also, add copious amounts of exponential to reduce the touchiness of the controls. Hope this helps.
