Aight so, it's doing the same thing. Pretty much no matter what I do (with the wheels off the ground), one of 2 things happens: It either idles high until I give it throttle in which case it just sorta kicks off and revs uncontrollably, or, it idles low and gets lower and lower until it dies. There is no point at which in adjusting the idle screw, it idles calmly. I'm also having trouble finding where to adjust the little lock nut bolt thingies where the throttle cable meats the actual throttle handle, so I wasted about 20 minutes messing with that to no real avail.
This leads me to believe something is off with the idle jet, however before I go down that annoying route I will give it another go after finding this: http://qt50.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/nu50-geninfo-lub-maint.pdf
On page 28 it specifies a way to set the Idle, I'm going to try that specific strat and see if it works.
