V2 ELEV/AILE G at 11 O-clock. ELEV/AILE EXT at 1 1/2 O-clock not enough, flip rate to slow cause I fly low in my front yard. Think I'll max ELEV/AILE EXT out next time. Got plenty of power HP08S 16500KV. Didn't hear my 4 & 1/2 timer go off and landed at 6 minutes stock battery & still plenty of power but battery was at 3.65V after it cooled off lower than I like. Those who are thinking about going 2S, I would recommend HP08S 16500KV with a 8T. Less weight than stock & no bogging.
it sounds well and good from what you claim above! the EXT pot around the 1o'clock position is already more than what i need. by the way, my travel adj are all at 100%. D/R at 110%, EXP at -10%. with these settings i am already happy with stick banging low to the ground. any faster by increasing the EXT pot on the 3in1 causes the heli to overshoot on cyclics, then you have to correct needlessly...
although i cannot say the same for you since you have a different power setup! maybe the thing will handle more differently as your adjustments indicate. mine is only bone stock. but i am considering to upgrade to higher KV but only 1S... some review the spin motor does well with stock ESC only...
