Default Lipo's setup on a aerobird challenger? First plane

Hi all,

I just bought my fist plane a Aerobird challenger on ebay, $67.00 including shipping. It included to two spare sets of wings and tails, it has a six cell and a seven cell battery with it.

I can not wait to get, it was only flew once and nose dived so the guys son lost interest in it and he wants it out of his basement.

Does anyone know the best the best setup for it with lipo's on stock internals, so when I learn to fly it, I can have longer flights.

Thanks

Jeff

You'll want a 2S LiPoly with at least as much mAh as your biggest NiMH pack. Look for something with approximately the same weight as your 7-cell pack, as the plane needs the battery weight to be balanced properly. The 2S is about the same as the 7-cell pack, and a 3S will destroy the electronics.

Be careful! The stock ESC in an ABC will not cut off the motor soon enough for a lipo!
