Default Storm 450 FPV

Had given my father in law this rtf heli as a new years present 2010 which he crashed soon after. He gave her back and so she's been sitting here gathering dust. So this is what I did to her. Want to change to 4s. I got some questions I'll ask in a bit. She still hasn't been out!

Some pics... She's so ugly. Even has a plastered leg with all the wires.

Will she fly?

Well I went for a quick hover while it wasn't raining and it was great! Tracking was spot on and tail was locked. Man this Quark is amazing. Was hovering under 2 minutes when it started raining again but I tell you what it felt great. Been working hard on this one and seeing it behave itself was just something. Got inside and was about to screem "YEEEEEEEEEEES" but didn't want to look like a kid.... But boy did I feel like a kid lol

So today I order a Koby 55 esc because I want to setup a governer. But here's where I need you guys. This is my 3rd heli and I've never used a governer before. And since I'm after long flight times and low head speeds, I keep hearing that a good governer is what I need. What I can't get is setting the throttle curve, flat curve, steps to acheive best governed headspeed, etc.

I currently have a pitch range -/+10. My pitch settings on Normal are from -1 to +7 (0 at center). Throttle curve 0 60 75 82 90. I'm after scale flying no 3d. Headspeed I want around 2500. It's a stretched 450 with 350 blade, scorpion 2221-12, 4s, 12t pinion (changing to 11t).

I'd appreciate some help guys thanks.
