E-flite T-28 1.2m and the P-51D 1.2m

Can someone explain why the recommended batteries for both the T-28 1.2m and the P-51D 1.2m is the 3S 2200 and the Optional replacement battery can be all the way up to a 3S 3200 battery? I have both of these batteries and that is quite a difference in size and weight. Wouldn't that be a big difference in set up for the CG?

The CG is the CENTER of the weight of the model. Yeah the two batteries may be in two different places and over all weight of model will change but not the CG.

T28 and P51

I have both planes and run on 4-cell 2200 or 2500 battery. I upgraded the ESC to 45 or 65 on both. A Rock Hobby prop on my P51 gives me all the power I need. Not sure why all Horizon models use a 3-cell power plant.

Blondie has a movable battery tray to compensate for different batteries.

I don't own the T-28, but I do have the P-51D 1.2. They designed the movable / sliding battery tray in " Blondie " to compensate for different weight/sized batteries.

The new P51 1.2M also has the sliding tray.

3S 2200 is recommended because that's what most e guys have laying around. I have the 28 and prefer a larger (3S 3200) but it flies fine with a 2200. I don't pay much attention to battery placement in my electrics and have never had a CG problem. I'm waiting for the new Mustang.
