check wings to make sure you don't have " wash in" stbd wing wash in will cause left roll, especially if you have washout in the port wing.

The 160 245 kv...should be the same as the E-flite power 160...which will definitely turn a 24X10 prop...I used the power 160 245kv and 24x10 prop on 6 cells for a season in my 1/3 size DR1

What about the Turnigy G 160 245 KV...also in-expensive, and a good motor. I believe the 63/74 is not a high enough KV for you. you need the 245 KV no matter what brand you choose.
