Yes it does take experience to hear that sweet spot at WOT. But once you hear it with your one particular saw you will never forget it.Get a stop watch, a clean even sized log or timber [cant] with no knots.

With your L, idle and H screws set by the owners manuals specs.Have a clean air filter. Warm your saw up with a couple of warm up cuts, then make 2 cuts each cut timed by a helper. Write them down. Then lean  [turn in] the H screw a micro click and time 2 more cuts. Keep doing this until the time starts to get slower. There you have found your sweet spot at the last H setting, while still warm rev the saw at WOT a few seconds at a time and get used to hearing that sound.

Willard.

Thanks for all your help guys, I appreciate all this, and taking it all in. 

I will give this a try and see how it goes as well.
