A glow discharge dusty plasma in a magnetic trap in which the current channel narrows is obtained in moderate magnetic fields up to 3000 G. The results of initial experiments are reported. The formation of stable dusty plasma structures rotating at record-high angular velocities up to 15 rad/s is observed. The dependence of the angular velocity on the strength of the applied magnetic field is measured experimentally. We interpret it quantitatively on the basis of the ion drag force.
