Default Lower head speed?

I got a 5.5 on black Friday. About to buy motor. I like to run lower head speeds. Does anyone run around 1600rpm with the 5.5? Have you encountered any problems at this speed or is it pretty smooth? If anyone has any tips that would be great too.

The 5.5 tail is geared for a higher headspeed (3:86). Don't know if you could get the tail to hold very well even with 105mm tail blades at that speed. Only way to find out is to try. Motors in the 1100kv range are pretty standard for a 6S setup. Fly mine at 2300 rpms with 95mm tail blades.

Enjoy, these are nice helis and fly very well.
