New T-28 for Formation Flying
3 Attachment(s)
Well, I think it's cool at least....

New T-29 that's had a some paint and electronics overhaul. This was the gray paint scheme. Went with bright white Krylon short cut paints, 3 cans. The dots are craft store neon colors, about 6 coats. Then two coats of poly although for some reason the wings got a bit yellowy after the paint job. Still plenty bright I think.

Upgraded to a 40 amp esc and Turnigy 1100 kv motor that should make between 400-600 watts depending on battery use.

I picked up another plane from at my club and plant he same makeover as here with the exception of the paint job. This new one will be bright yellow with red or orange flames, not 100% sure on that.

My hope is to get two of these in the air for some formation flying. I just need a willing partner that is (yes, I'm hinting at you Stefan).

Had the maiden flight this weekend. Went with the stock prop but it clearly can't handle full throttle. Pretty good flight overall. Used a 14.8 2200 30c battery and it was very fast, but never got more than half throttle. I'll need a 10/6 apc to get this done right.
