Default charger rc airplane setups

Hey guys,

I haven`t found or seen any official thread about these airplanes yet and just thought of starting one. Since they all use about the same power system, I think that it would be good to have them all posted in one post.

So what setup do you guys have? 3D performance, hovers, flight times with your battery packs. Quality of the kits and so on...

I have the first charger plane and I added SFGs to it and alot of bracing. I wasn't trying to change the design, just having fun with it whenever I rebuilt it from a bad crash. I started with an A-20L and had to use that for my new stiffy so I put a Himax 2816-1120 spinning an APC 12X3.8 with a PQ 20C 1500. I have a seeker RX and HS 56HB servos in it. It has provided hours of fun in the back yard. It hovers somewhere around 1/4 throttle minus a couple clicks...lol. Vertical punchout causes flutter in 2 seconds.

I just got the Shifty-Pro 3D from Charger. I flew it yesterday and this morning for the first time. It flies great! I'm using a Hacker A20-22L and a 3 cell 1320s, and an APC 10x4.7 prop. It has super power. It would perform great with less motor and smaller batteries too. I use E-Flight S-75 servos on all my foamies. It weighs 14 ounces with their landing gear. The plane flies real nice. The balance point is recommended to be a half inch behind the spar. My plane flies best at abou 1 1/4" behind the spar.

IMO, its the perfect foamie. It's a well designed foamie, no over-kill. It builds in a few hours, it's good size, it flies great, the motor mount simplifies motor mounting, comes with vinyl decals, and Charger RC's service is the best there is.

I don't work for them, I'm just impressed with the whole operation.
