Mine did that on a 3s battery. So I shortened the pushrods and leaned the servo arms back (toward the flaps) about 40 degrees when the flaps were up. It helped somewhat. But I still have the feeling the servos are putting out their maximum power to get the flaps down at normal flight speeds.

I now believe that a better solution, instead of shortening the pushrods, would be to lean the servo arms back (as I did) and also move the control horns on the flap surfaces, back around 1/2" or 3/4".
