Taming the Shrew - aka lowering headspeed on the 500

I played with lowering headspeed on the 500 as the headspeed with a 15t pinion was way too much and caused the packs to come down almost hot (not to mention the lack of flight time to keep the lipo within 80%).

The smallest pinion I have is 12t. I found that 12t with 75% throttle curve gets me just above a low speed wobble at the end of the pack. It still screams so I'll probably disable the GOV next. The ESC was only warm but the pack still came down warmer than I'd like.
