Default Larger battery bigger ESC??

Someone gave me an Axe Cp recently and I found out that the 950mah battery that came with it was recalled. I sent it off but in the meantime I purchased another battery to keep flying. I purchased an 1150mah battery. Since using this battery I have noticed a surge in the throttle. It will bounce in mid air while just trying to hover. Is this caused by not purchasing a bigger esc to match the larger battery? And if so any suggestions on which one I need? I am new to this if you can't tell and real inexperienced. Any help is appreciated.

Also I am reading about people replacing thier e-boards with a gyro. Am I understanding this right and if so is that better or just a cheaper fix to a fried e-board?

I would really appreciate any response that might help in this matter. I really can't figure out why the motor seems to surge. With the throttle stationary at at any position the motor will speed up very quickly and then slow down just as fast. All in a split second. Until I get this figured out I will not be able to learn the hover I so dearly need to practice.

I have an Axe CP, and I have a set up that works pretty well.  I'm using the Axe 400's esc and motor, and I'm using a 1300mAh 25C 3 Cell LiPo.  I can only speculate as to why your throttle might be acting up, but I bet that if you use the esc and motor combination I'm using, you should be fine.  If after that your problem continues, then you are probably dealing with a TX/RX issue.  Either way, you can't lose by removing the e-board and replacing it with the axe 400 esc and motor.  If you choose that route, be sure to get a head lock gyro.  Hope this helps
