Yup, that is a good flycutter bit. I might go as low as 10,000 rpm. A lot will depend on how fast you can feed it into the material.

While it may be rated to 18,000 rpm, you might not get a decent chip load without cranking the ipm really high, (not always advisable).

Check it after running the flycut cycle. You should be able to tolerate the heat in your hand if it is set up right. If it is too hot, slow the rpms down, or speed the feedrate up to increase the chip load.
