Help with my first T-IFO
I just finished my first T-IFO and I don't have much lift. It almost seems under powered. I went through quite a few ifo threads and people don't usually seem to have this problem. I am using the gws A motor that came with the kit along with a 950 mha lithium poly. Could it be that my motor is slanted at too much of an angle?

I have the same setup as you.
I know this sounds stupid, but is your prop on the right way? ie; GWS Logo on prop blades should be facing forwards.
It's a real nice bird when trimmed properly. Also, make sure your CoG is correct. A little nose heavy is better than tail heavy.
How about some pics?

The prop suggestion is the most likely culprit. In fact, I'm pretty sure you'll soon reply and report success.
If not though, you could also have a bad motor or a bad or improperly charged battery.
Apparently some of the GWS A motors are better than others and the efficiency varies somewhat.
I don't know the first thing about LiPos, but you should probably find out what voltage your pack should be at when fully charged then use a voltmeter to check them.
[EDIT: Changed paragraph about battery. Didn't see that you provided info about your pack.]
