Default Tail ratio Align 300x

The tail ratio on the Align 300x appears to be 3.08 from what I could read. Seems a bit low. What are your thoughts on this ratio given size/headspeed? For those that have one, are you happy with tail authority?

Terrible ratio. Haven't flown it, but having flown other helis with similar and slightly higher ratios (around 3.5-3.8:1), I can say two things:

1. At "normal" headspeeds, the tail will suck.
2. You'll need to run very high headspeed in order for it to hold decently, and even then, it will likely not be great.
