battery switch mounted to floor - I would move that to help keep exposed terminals from forming corrosion. And if its mounted on top of carpet - carpet stays wet plus dry carpet - a fire hazard waiting to happen. Just wanted to let you know. Not picking on you but safety is important as well.

Itís not mounted at all It screwsto the side of the engine cover when the engine covers installed and is approximately about 1 foot above the floor

Have you tried the 14x19p prop AFTER the top end work?

You added a blade and went up about 2.5 in the pitch. You need to try a smaller prop.

Try a 21p Mirage Plus prop. with that setup.

yep, this will give you an idea of how much power you have gained. With that setup you want to spin at minimum 5000 rpms.
