Overpowered? Not so sure.

A few people have mentioned that with the motors I have used for my build, I would have more power than I know what to do with. Since this is my first build, I don't have anything to compare it to. But I don't feel like it is overpowered at all. In fact, I feel like it could be more powerful. Here are the specs

1430g full up weight including battery
450mm frame, X configuration
3S battery, 20C
MultiWii FC
770KV motors (http://www.hobbypartz.com/02p-motor-...814-kv770.html)

There are a few things I could do to shave a few grams off, but it wouldn't be much (like maybe 50). But when I completely gun it, full throttle, it goes up, but it's not like, holly crap, going up.

When I hold the quad and gun it, it feels like it's lifting a pound or two. I don't know, maybe since this is my first quad, it's actually pretty powerful, but I don't really realize it.

Put a 4s on there. Or, try a 3s 4000mah.
I've learned that the power comes from the batteries as much as what the motor is capable of. Not enough battery and you won't get, "holy crap!"
