I weigh 13.3 without the battery and 15.6 with the battery. I appreciate any help you can give. Do I need more watts? or is this enough? Do I change props? or do I have to go to 3cell?

You have more than enough power. Slow and graceful is what she does best. I seldom use more than 1/2 throttle on mine even on take off.
