Park zone t28 vs FMS t28

Hi guys. I want to get a warbird and thought that the t28 would be a good start. Is there much difference between them in flight chacteristics? And what about quality with the fms one? Any help will be appreciated

Can't comment on the FMS models but will say the PKZ have amazing models. You would not be gambling with the PKZ version, it was very popular.

Wich FMS T28, the 80cm one or the 140cm one?
A flying buddy at the field has the 140cm one and PZ one. And he sais the FMS flies really well, it visibly tracks better then the PZ T28 Lands a little faster the the PZ. It also has retracts and flaps and is just way more detailed.
The PZ T28 is smaller (112cm) and allot more simple but flies very well. Have this one myself and it flies very nice.

The 80cm FMS T28 i am not familiar with. The PZ is then bigger and a little heavier so should handle wind a little better. But how the total package is i am not sure. The PZ T28 is 100% ready to fly once you put in the battery. No CG problems or whatever.

If you want to be on the safe side. Then just go for the T28 from ParkZone. It's a proven plane, and as you can see on the forums here very much liked. But the new FMS planes are certainly good too.

Hope this was of some use.

I am on a pretty tight budget (around the $150 mark). I am also playing on using it at the local school field as well.

you can add sky angel t-28 to list also if you want. it is smaller (around 30") but fast. belly lander. for around $150 you could get 2 of them ($80 each + free shipping over $100 right now at BH). they have other planes in the line if you want to get 1 t-28 and another plane instead for the 2nd. i can't comment on this one as i have it on order and haven't received it yet but i have the F4F from the line and love it.
