I've had this plane for some time now, and I love it. Ever since I went to 3s it's been great. Other 800mm birds in the series fly decent on 2s, but the T28 was a dog for sure on 2s. Shes happy as can be on 3s though.

stock motor
stock prop
30-amp speedo
orange 4-channel rx
stock servo's
i86AP flight stability system.
Turnigy 3s 1300mm 30c.

Fast, fun, reliable. Flies more solid and feels heavier than my old Dynam T28 did (great plane also). Doesn't get pushed around in the wind like it use to.

I got a little too excited... and lost it.. lol

Should I still reinforce it by inserting a bamboo barbecue stick inside?

Best solution please?

Oh attached the photo on my previous post, and one more here.

Thanks Diesel, will toothpick do the trick and some epoxy? gorilla glue and shoogoo are scarce here in Manila... or non existent.

Gee thanks guys for the quick replies, I'm on it now..

Can't help seeing a broken wing, my 4yr old son cried when he saw the plane in 2 parts after I retrieved it.

I got disoriented when it flew at the end of the field and the trees in contrast

Clean break. Like mentioned epoxy works good. I use a lot of epoxy, I also use hot glue a lot. If you can squeeze a popsicle or 2 ((1)one in the middle / (2) one aft one forward) that will strengthen also. If there's no room or you don't have any use like 4 toothpicks. I would definitely strengthen it though .

Ouch! That is a fast T28. What battery did you have on it?

Gotta love these 800mm foamies. Did you break anything else in that crash?

Drop a 3s 1300 30c in it and hold on. You'll need more room
