Rotor RPM (RRPM)

Rotor RPM in flight is not usually a constant value.  

It depends on a few things which will make it speed up or slow down.

To put simply, if the rotors sense a stronger pull underneath them, they will speed up, if they sense a reduced pull, they will slow down.

For instance, the rotors will spin faster if the weight of the gyro is heavier due to larger crew or more fuel.
