I'll mess around with radio/esc placement... but I smell lead in the tail already :/
or
Maybe just a bigger motor and a 3 blade?
I'm not surprised as it was designed for about a 1500 3S only without any additional FPV / other gear.

Personally - its already heavier as designed than a Polaris - so adding more weight IMHO can only make it even more worse than the Polaris.

I fly mine with a 1500 battery, which is about the right weight. I get about 10 minutes with that. Also, it does fly okay without the canopy too. If I'm flying it back-to-back several flights I'll do that to let the ESC cool, but I also fly it off grass so am not worried about water intrusion.
