Default Fliton Edge 540 Mini, AUW?????


I have a Fliton Edge 540 Mini. I have flown it a couple of times now and I have noticed that it flies really heavily and will not perform 3D maneuvers as well as I thought.
I use:
Axi 2208/24 / 11x5 E Prop
Jeti 30 amp ESC
Hitec HFS-05MS Receiver
8g E-Sky Servos
11.1v 2200mah Mega Lipos (150g)

At the moment the plane has an auw of 720g (25.4 oz). I was looking at down-sizing the motor, esc and lipo, but im not sure this will benefit the planes performance.
This would be using:
Axi 2212/20 (or similar)
Hacker X20
Hitec HFS-05MS Reciever
8g E-Sky Servos
Thunder Power 11.1v 1320mah

I calculated the lightest I could get the plane was around 650g (22.93oz), with using the 2212/20 set-up.
Would this be too much weight for a Axi 2212/20, Hacker A20-20L or a similar motor?

If anyone else has a Fliton Edge or Extra Mini, could you please tell me your set-ups and weights?

Any Advise would be a Great Help!!
Many Thanks

Anything in the 19-23 oz range for that plane is the norm. That alternative setup looks good. You should still have some good power with that one, and a much better flying plane. Go for it!
