    My MH-1 is set at: Engine RPM 6,750 @ 100%. Rotor RPM is 575 @ 100%. I think others may be set at Engine RPM 6,850 @ 100% and Rotor RPM at 575 @ 100%.
    What are the difference w/ your rotorblades being pitched slightly more @ 6,750 vs. some others having theirs @ 100 rpms more?

      The Mini-500 rotor system was engineered for 546 rotor RPM. I'm sure the blades and mounting hardware can take the extra centrifugal force loads of 19 more RPM, but I don't have anything to prove it.
