Default AERO ACE POWER PROBLEM??

My son and I have been have some great fun with his Aero Ace planes but have noticed that they both seem underpowered lately. We have changed the batteries and recharged but they don't have the same lift that they had previously. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong. We have only taken them out about 6 times to fly.

Try charging them twice.

Fly into the wind, and try adjusting the tail to get it to climb more.

try running the battery until it shuts down and then charge it as many times as you can. I think thats deeep cycling.

Someone correct me here if I'm wrong...

Deep cycling of lipos is a BAD thing and something that is not necessary.

As for the lack of power.
Have you changed the TX batteries?
Are you using rechargables? If so, are they 2500mah or better?

You can run the lipo down to the ESC cutoff, but I doubt that is going to help your power problems. Deep cycling was something that was done on the older NiCad batteries and other batteries with 'memory'. Lipos, if I understand this correctly, do not suffer from memory issues.
