My turbojet is set up just like yours (flaps/retracts/GensAce 3S 2200) and it scoots off the ground and into the air. Comparatively low static thrust is not a problem on mine, even with stock fans/esc. Check:

1) CG
2) Throttle endpoints (are you getting full power? Reset using ESC setup if you need to)
3) Elevator throw - I noticed that the control rods like to bow, especially if they are impeded by stuffed wires, etc. Make sure that you have sufficient throw and that there's no binding. Note also that if well balanced the elevators don't NEED alot of throw, so don't overdo it. Mine was perfectly balanced out of the gate with the GensAce 2200 right in the pre-fab slot.

Best of luck! It's a fun little plane.
