Heli tach

OK. Just got my heli tach in the mail. I understand you need to set the rpm and look throught the viewing window until the blades appear to stop. One question, do you view the heli from the side at eye level - like when you are setting up tracking? The instructions don't state where you are to position yourself(or your helper actually!) I'm flying an Ergo50 with an OS50hyper and stock gearing. Any thoughts on headspeed? I was thinking 1650. Sound close for an intermediate sport flyer?

It doesn't matter where you stand it works as long as you can see the rotor disc. Having a bit of an angle on the disc makes it easier. I would suggest 1700-1750 for a sport flyer.
