Try a higher C rated battery or check the connections on the battery (including soldering). I had that problem and doing both of those things sorted it. Also check the programmed settings of the ESC (if it is programmable) and check if the high and low points on the throttle stick are set correctly.

Love the sport, not the plane
That stinks. What is your current C rating?

Checked all the solder joints.. The ESC is programmable, but only if you have a programming card, but yet no programming card is mentioned being available or needed (until you get the esc).. and when i try and set the high and low throttle points, it doesn't act like the directions say it should.. And since i had to chop the servo cable, i doubt the place will take it back if its bad... Luckily the LHS has a CC phoenix 10 on the wall, so i may go pick that up tomorrow.

C rating on the battery is 16c.. which is good for 4A continous and 6a burst. With the prop i'm running, i should pull about 4.5a at full throttle and make about 190g of thrust.
If i go to a GWS 6030 i'll pull about 3.2a at full power, and make 150g of thrust

that stinks. Why did you chop the wire?

Try i higher rated C battery to test the setup, not all of them are true. And if you made the pack yourself, or connected any wires on the set up, your solder may have been "dirty". Go back and resolder connections aswell.

I like the cart, beastII. It would be good to see it from a few more angles.

I made a model based on my Citroen Saxo (small french hatchback) with a Vapor brick, which was meant to fly, only it didn't. It was a bit too heavy anyway, and the GB07 brushed power system just wasn't up to it. I might have another go at a flying car one day though. That one may as well remain as an ornament.

Got the issue w/ my bipe fixed. I put a CC phx 10 esc on and it works great. Overall weight came out to 95g. 15g heavier than i wanted, but i could probable shave 3 to 5g of weight be getting rid of some excess wires. but i'm not to worried about it. it will hover at a little under 3/4 throttle right now w/ a apc 7x3.8w prop.
