All,

read the review at hobby king for this product and there is a respond that you need to change the exhaust with a paper cup cut to 55mm and the thrust increased termendously on a 3s

If the motor is rated using a 1300 mAh lipo, a 2200 mAh will be too heavy for any kind of decent performance. Try a lighter battery with a high discharge rating like 30C. Many of my jets fly great on smaller lipos, weigh them down with a big lipo and they barely fly if at all. The Phase III F-16 is the exception, that one does great with a 2200 mAh.
