Need to lift 11lbs:solved

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Need to lift 11lb(HCS MIV) camera system. Using a new(1 hour runnin) Benzin Trainer with 421 semi 800mm blades. Can lift 8lbs, but it will not hold the 11 lbs for more than a few secs. Oil is Amsoil at 30:1. Needles are at 2T on high and low.Headspeed is 1300+.
Ideas appreciated.
Anyone know how much a 23cc gasser with 800mm blades will lift reliably?

Update: repitched for 9deg max with 100% throttle and setup mid throttle curves(5 deg and 40%). Head speed is 1400 and solid. Heli now lifts the 11lb rig easily.
