Parkzone Sukhoi SU 26M Power issue.

I have a new Parkzone Sukhoi SU 26M but is seems to have no power.
My Champ can run circles around this thing. Using a 160 30c battery and it can hardly keep the nose up. Is there a way to adjust this to get the normal speed or do I need to chance the stock prop. I have watched the video of others and mind does not fly that way. "Major Gutless Wonder".

What do you mean by 160 battery? How many were the exact mAh of the battery that you used? Was it fully charged? Did you check the voltage? Try a fully charged battery and report back.

The Su 26M isn't meant to be a racer, it's an aerobatic model, so it require more thrust than speed.

You may find the motor take a few runs to improve, (brushed motor), plus flying in anything with even a slight breeze will make it look slow travelling into wind.

I got bored with mine and modified it to look more like a Tempest II. It didn't fly any better, but it looks better in my opinion. It also used the 110mAh cell, going too big just adds weight.

Keep trying and flying, also check the gears are free running.
