Default String height

I am new to Nylon strings and really love the sound difference from steel. The guitar I bought is a Yamaha NTX900fm. What is a good string height for this crossover? Thanks--

On my flamenco guitar I have it at 2.7 - 3.0mm. But you need relatively high tension strings with lower action.
