Question Head speed question

Hi all,

I am converting my 2 blade turbine (JetCat PHT3) heli to 5 blades. With the 2 blade setup I simply wind the throttle to full open and the just fly around like that until I land and then turn the throttle down again. I have been told that I may need to bring down the head speed when changing to 5 blades. Anyone else think that is right? If so, how much or to what head speed?

Thanks for your advice.
