I was looking for a thread about stepping up to the T-28 I have a PZ P-51 and I was speaking with someone at the hobby store, they said that the T-28 is actually a little easier to fly than the mustang?? Not sure if that is true or not? My P-51 is a 3 channel and has no rudder control. I was thinking of getting a T-28 for my next plane.
+1 for sure! The T-28 is much easier to fly, I had a friend of mine get the P-51 for his first plane (because it was cheaper). After trying to fly it a few times he was ready to throw it in the trash because he was having such a hard time flying it. The P-51 is a great little airplane, just not a good first plane. After Buddy boxing with me and my 28 a couple times he ran out and bought his own.

Also Tunerm, A few people have mentioned using a buddy box. That will make learning much more enjoyable and much cheaper. Even if you just do it for the first flight or two to get a feel for the plane....
