You should be getting 190 to 200 watts on that motor. Prop is too small. prop up to an apc 10x4.7 sf or better yet a gws HD 11x7.

What is your battery voltage dropping down to at full throttle? If it's dropping below 10 to 10. 5 volts and its fully charged the battery is toast or not rated at a big enough c rating. 12000 you want 20c burst for that motor.

Hope you get it figured out.

Spaz, whats all that white stuff out there?
