I've figured out that I almost never crash when flying the larger batteries (300 mah 30c) even though I'm much more aggressive with them. And I've narrowed that down to the fact that my tail (stock) virtually never blows out with the higher power batteries. However I blow my tail out several times per flight with the stock 200mah 20 c batteries. And if I'm not flying high enough I don't have the power or time to recover and the results are often crashes. Fortunately I fly over grass so damage is generally minimal. So from now on I'm using my 200 mah batteries for easy, basic puttering around. The larger batteries will be for all 3d or just plain fast flying around. Has anyone else noticed this?

Have you swapped your tail boom for one that is made of solid carbon and is 5.5in long.

Id start there.

The stock packs have just enough umph and they do sag more so than they probably should under load which really affects the tail. It's not as bad with the long boom though.

From there buy 10x 300mah packs and you will be good to go.
