Im running a Mega 22/20/2 plus Phonix cc45 with 8 cell 3000 nicads.
I do get about 8 mins hovering, but there does not seem to have enough power to do anything other than a few slow controlled circuits. It really does seem to be very underpowered.
Is this normal?
Thanks in advance.

even using the biggest pinion available you will not have the headspeed the eolo likes.
The mega spins at 2850rpm or so and the recommended motors spin at 3700 rpm, you can see the big difference.

If I change to lipo's, will this help a lot, or do I need to change motor the as well?

4s 2p lipo and 14t pinion should be sweet. HS just above 2000 and little bogging, amp draw should be an average of 15.

Yep,

On 4S2P lipo, that would make a great combo. Start with 14T pinion when you're learning and try the 15T and 16T pinions when you're progressing to Aerobatics.

Thanks chaps.
lipo's are obviously the way to go.
My mate has a 3s2p that I can try. Will this be as good as a 4s2p?

A 3s2p will probably not get it off the ground. If it does it won’t have much power.

Also, you can’t use the Phoenix 45 BEC with a 4s2p LiPo – you will need to disable the Phoenix BEC and add a UBEC or SBEC.
