GoDiscover Flying Wing - lack of power.

I have a Godicover from HK.
Standard motor and prop.

Flying with 3000mah 4s Zippy batteries.

When I fly with two batteries it flies, but just barely.
If I fly with one it is ok, but a bit slow.

If I want more power to this bird, what is the recommended motor and prop setup?

I haven't maidened my HKGD but based on what I read in the HK Go Discover thread (same sub forum) I'd suggest your problem is not normal. Using a different prop? Bad CG?
Anyhow, suggest reading other thread (heaps of info, if you hadn't already) and posting in it as the regular HKGD operators are likely subscribed to that thread.
Good luck.
