Yes it is. I also learned a few things since that thread and that is why the very different settings posted here in May compared to January. The changes were not all at once but over a period of time and that helps with the transition. The owner of scalerchelis.com was really firm in his coaching of those making a transition to scale to never have a change-over from negative to positive pitch during spool-up as he has seen too many nice machines destroyed by that resonance that can happen rather fast. It is puzzling that a pod and boom helicopter is seldom hit by this vicious problem even though a vast majority of them have 3 to 4 degrees of negative pitch at the start of spool-up (all my pod and booms have negative pitch at start-up). There does not seem to be a direct reason, but you can be certain, it does happen. Take care.
