Mine is a stock Trex 700 DFC (Align servos not HV). With an 800 stretch kit.  It has the big 800 blades on it.  If you have different servos, it will behave differently. I'm running about 1450 rpm.

I think better servos will need lower pids.  Higher head speed will also require lower pids. (P specifically)

I'll attach my recent Param file (3.2).  It flies nicely.  The only weird thing is that the battery monitor settings are to measure a 3s reciever pack and a 12s flight pack (measured on the current pin).

Rob commented on your page that this is normal if not trying to fly.
