What is the gear ratio for the tail on the Lepton? And how does it compare to other helicopters?

the tail ratio is 4-1, many people such as myself feel that Hirobo needs to speed it up a little, maybe to 4.4-1 would be ideal. As it is configured now, you need to run a pretty high headspeed (>2800) to have solid tail authority with the stock blades.

Would they just have to increase the smaller gear a few teeth? Would you have to get a new belt or tail shaft pinion?
