That slowflyer prop will load the motor a good deal more than the standard HD prop. That may be the problem. However, don't expect a huge improvement. The 8x6 HD only draws about 6-8% more power than the stock prop but it's also a little more efficient. The power bump is subtle but noticeable. If you really want a big jump on the stock motor, you'll have to go to a 3 cell battery and then probably prop down a little.
