With the ARF kit that it comes with. 1250kv motor. 30A esc and 8x4 props. Using a 2200 11.1v lipo.
Another problem i have is that the servo throw is so low. Not sure why. I checked my radio and it as full throw setup on it.
After going through my kit, I probably wouldn't use the motor that came with it. It seems like decent quality, but very small. I'll probably use it on a different project. Not sure about the control surface throw. Is it the servos or the control surfaces? Did you work those control surface hinges in? They are REALLY stiff out of the box.
