I suggest using ecalc and confirm that you are not under or overdrawing current

from having a quick look I see nothing blatantly wrong with your setup if you're using the appropriate prop, it looks like you drew too much current so that strongly suggests the prop you used is high pitch and / or larger than 6 or 7 diameter which you shouldn't do for this config.

No offence but with all the RC and quadcopter websites out there - why not ask in a dedicated forum???
People who do this stuff on a daily base are far more likely to give you the answers you seek...
