Build a lighter quad frame. I have used 3/4th inch poplar wood sticks from Osh which work great. Find some light plywood from a Hobby shop and you will be easily around 600 grams. It'll be a good lesson in building light. One of the most important lessons I had to learn on the way as well.

Your quad, ready to fly with battery, should weigh no more than 700 grams with those blue wonders. My QTR weighed 800 grams and the 2100mah 3 cell battery only lasted about three laps around the field before I had to land.

Setting the throttle above 2000 shouldn't do anything. It may cause unwanted bugs in the code as well.
