Crash the tail rotor and keep flying in a circle, there is no speed limit?

Other models do not behave like this.

can the helicopter fly faster than its tip speed?
0.8m x Pi x 2900 RPM x 60 = 437 km/h

- Max safe Forward Flight speed estimate = Tips speed * 0.3, before the onset of uncontrollable cyclic handling from retreating blade stall (violent 'pitch up' effect 90º rotor offset to retreating blade), may occur between 0.3000 and 0.3333 of tip speed. Read the theory by Colin Mill, more here.
