You should have ballistic power. I think your batteries might be weak.

"Weak" is being too kind for brand new batteries.

Just placed an order for more TH 250mAh batteries. Specifications are the same as Thunder power G6 and currently at a better price.

There's been a lot of conversation across the forum about a bad batch of Nanos.
They are supposedly better now...

These were purchased 12/11/2012 from the USA warehouse. I don't see any date code on them. It is possible that these are from old stock but for me it is not worth the risk to order more plus I would rather have 250mAh batteries.

Bad thing about the nanos is you never know if you will get some good ones or bad. Though that goes for any batteries, I got a few bad hyperions back before.

My charger has the ability to measure internal resistance (bad thing - lower is better).

I have attached PDF showing the two 800 mAh GensAce I used for testing as well as the Twisted Hobby and HobbyKing batteries for my Mini. Note that the HK Nano's are high and all over the place.

Batteries are here, yahoo! Just playing with the location so far it looks like mine will be just ahead of the spar. Now I just need some better weather, been blowing bigtime.
Next one I'll put a solid spar got some strips just the right size and some wheels.

Star just check the TH site for the motor here. There is a good pic of the back of the motor.

Yeah with it's smaller size you can't help trying small areas to hover and all. Had to redo one if the aileron pushrods didn't get it right the first time. Thank god for thin ply and a soldering iron.

Just realized this vid never made it to the build vid post. Here is the maiden of the first CY Mini production plane. Yes the music is over charged (on purpose). That's because the volume on the Mini goes past 10!

Mini 1 (1 min 7 sec)
