Bumblebee ST550 Questions

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I've just purchased and assembled a Bumblebee ST 550 model, After assembling and Binding all TX and Flight controller I find that I can't get enough power to get it off the ground or even to hover in the air.

Not sure What I can do to achieve flight.

the only thing I've done is purchase a 4200 30C 3S 11.1v battery over the recommended 2200 30C 3S 11.1v battery.

1) Is There a better Scorpion model of brushless Motor and ESC I can buy that would allow me to gain flight?

2) Is there a better lighter battery I should be using for payload as well as extended flight??

3) Am I possibly overlooking something? Size of propellers??

4) Is there a model of Giro I can add to the Onboard autopilot controller of the Bumblebee??
