I was looking foward to flying this thing and now it looks like I'll have to send it back.
I had similar problem but it was only present if I smoothly increase throttle from zero. Try bumping your trottle up quickly to around 30-40%. That reduces the initial startup current that causes the MOPS to cut power to the motor. This is worth giving a try before disabling the MOPS.
I also found that the problem reduced over time as the motor got run in.
