    Motor not developing full power

    I have a Starmax P-51 & the motor doesn't seem to develop full power. Everything is stock: 400KV motor, 80A ESC, 3800ma 4s 14.8v battery. At full power it is barely flying. Using a watt meter, it is pulling about 700-800 watts. It is my understanding that for the motor to develop full power it should pull about 1200 watts. I don't know this for a fact, but it is the general consensus of opinion. Have you any idea as to what the problem might be? Plane weighs about 6.5lbs.

    As stated at the top of the expert form, the forum is dead and no one will respond to your questions, so I am going to move your post to an active forum.

    I will close the thread.
