BLHeli settings for mCPX, governed at 5000RPM

 

The aim of this particular setup is to find the best settings for 3D flying hence the high RPM. Higher RPM means snappier cyclic response and a little more energy in the rotor system when entering a flip or roll i.e. more RPM at the end of the maneouvre hopefully.
