Feels like it's underpowered, but I'm used to a solid 2:1 .
I was flying mine on a 1300kv BW and a 3 cell. I found that it flew fine once I got it to altitude, but the climb was slow. I did put a bigger 46 gram 1000kv motor on it recently just to get a better climb, but once I'm up where I want to be I fly it on low power and there isn't much difference.
