Atomic 4 Slow forward

Make certain that the prop is clean. It only takes a small amount of fouling to really de-power the A4. I had a similar experience last summer and did a quick haul to clean the prop. I was amazed how little fouling was on the prop. After cleaning and relaunch, it felt as though the motor was new.
