Yes, I had the 800mm Airfield T28. It was pretty heavy for its size so I had to keep the speed up all the time. I even created a thread asking why it lost altitude during turns. It flew well once I learned how it needed to be flown. Then I was bitten by the spare-parts issue you will read so much about. The motor mount on the 800mm birds is a weak piece of plastic that breaks easily.

Mine broke and, of course, there are no spare mounts. Only a spare fuselage. The spare fuse + shipping from NP was more than a PZ T28 fuse from the LHS so while the initial cost may be lower, the spare parts (if you can get them) are certainly not.
