Why are you using a turnigy motor? They are typically very heavy and have low output compared to other options.

For example, if you look at the hacker A100-10 you see it's the same KV, quite a bit lighter, and way more efficient.

The hacker A150-10 is still lighter and has a lower kv which is good for running large props.

The A200-8 is only 2oz heavier, a bit lower KV, and rated for much more power.

Remember, that the ratings don't mean much because some companies are very conservative (like hacker) and others tend to lie right through their teeth (hobby king.)

One last thing. Make sure you go through the bearings, confirm that the shaft is sufficiently hard, and the magnets are well glued in place. Loosing a motor would not be a good thing on a twin that light.

Good Luck.
