Default Kosmik and Jive Pro: Toleration of low throttle value?

I have Kosmiks and Jive Pro ESCs. I am using Governor Store. I understand that these ESCs function optimally at 80% throttle value. I want to do hover and orientation training at low head speeds mainly to increase flight time. Even accounting for the Active Free Wheel feature, how low can I safely go on the throttle? Is 45% throttle OK?

I think I've always read/heard that Kosmiks can run at low % all day long with no issue.
At least I've never had a Kosmik get warm in the least, and they stay at low current consumption (<20) with extended low-RPM hovering and moving around the yard (with some mild vertical pumps). Thats's with a 730-750 Urukay and Soxos DB7.
Can't speak for Jive.

Yea provided the flying is mild at those throttle settings (no hard 3d) it will run very well and will be very efficient.

Actually - you could easy go below the 45% throttle value. I run some of my machines for low rpm at about 30 - 35%.
