It sounds like you have enough speed if its going at a fast running speed. Will the nose wheel lift at this speed? If it will not you are nose heavy! The a10 will not fly off with the nose wheel in contact as it needs a higher angle of attack. With the nose weight right and sufficient power being developed the a10 will climb out nicely but you need a good battery pack. If you are carrying extra dead weight try an AA battery pack which will deliver the required high current (8 cells give best power). THis plane is not highly powered but it does fly nicely IF!! you can keep power going to the motors. I had problems with motor cuts due high internal resistance shortly after take off.
Best of luck
