    My Taft Hobby is a slug....How do I get it to perform as advertised?

    I bought a Taft Hobbies 90mm viper from KMP. The first time I flew it, it barely had enough thrust to get off the paved runway. I put a thread out asking for advice.....several guys told me to " calibrate" the throttle, which I did. Better, but still not very fast......one of my club buddies downloaded the ESC manual, and tried to program it to get more thrust....not much difference. I am stumped. I see videos of this jet, and it seems quite fast......mine is a slug! Help,

    Hmmmm , What ESC ( could it be faulty ? ) Have you tried another ESC ? ( To confirm or deny )
    Battery , is it rated high enough ?
    How was the ESC calibrated ? ( Servo tester ? ) Does the ESC require a program card ?

    I had a 40A esc in one of my helicopters that never performed , even the cheapest Chinese 40A esc would kick it to the curb ..
    I ended up putting it in the rubbish . ( I ordered 2 of them at the time , the other is still un used in my spare parts box , it could be rubbish as well )
