Really, I wouldn't worry too much about it. If your cells don't go above 4.20V or below 4.15V, it's essentially a non-issue. No charger is perfect and the more expensive ones are probably a lot more...

From what I can see, the Tranchant needs standard size servos, so the HS82s will be too small. In any case, I've found that the 82s are a bit too weak in the design to withstand 3D. I already have...

Realistic enough to convey the exact "feel" of a T28? No. No simulator can do that.

Realistic enough to help arming you with the necessary skills to fly a T28? Yes, if you put enough hours into it.
