Default Super Kits

Hey I've been flying foamys for a little while now and I'm looking for one that flys more like airplane should. I think the planes with unreal knife edge and rudder authority are fun to fly but really don't teach you a lot about flying 3D like it has to be flown with a giant scale. I like the design of the Super Cap(plus it will match my 33%H9)
I noticed that the website lists the weight at 12.5 to 20 oz. What do most of the planes weigh out ready to fly? I know that the gear that I have(rimfire) will be sufficient at the lower end of that range.
Sorry if this has been asked before.

My new Super Cap came it at 18.5 oz

But for my test flight I had to add 1.5 oz of lead to the nose, so that put me at 20 oz. I plan to try it again in about an hour WITHOUT the lead weight to find the proper CG.

OK, she still flew great with no lead with a nose heavy attitude So that means I can start to move the battery pack back So the final weigh in is 18.5 oz

I am running a Hacker A20-20L with a Thunder Power 1320 LiPo that weighs in at 3 oz. The plane flies great so far, I love the rudder feed, flat turns nicely While I am still mastering the hovering/torque rolls skils, she does pull out no problem.

The wind and sun hasn't been in my favor at my flying spot but so far the low speed stunts are awesome! She'll snap roll at crawling speeds

I hope to get out one morning with no wind and really try to set it up[&:]
