Hovers beautifully, but if I try to pull a bunch of collective, increase throttle, i can hear the rotor rpm decrease a bit then it kind of dies. After that the ESC red light flashes and I can get it back in to a hover, but weak. I checked my batts. They are good. Batts show 54% after ESC cuts power to motor completely. I also rebound the radio. Any ideas?

Even though the battery I was using was showing 100% after charging I decided to try another batt based on a thread on another forum. Flew fine with the other batt. Guess I have more to learn about LiPos.

Yep lipos lose their punch with age. I recently experienced what you describe. Although it showed good capacity.
