The T28 is fairly simple like the Cub. If you are using the Spektrum radio, you have Throttle, Aileron Elevator, Rudder. If you are using one Channel for each, the Wing Type and Tail Type is Normal. Since it is an Electric, you usually put the Throttle Trim at Zero. When you connect the motor battery, the Electronic Speed Controller should Arm and make a series of beeps. It is best to keave the Prop off until you are sure the the motor is turning in the correct direction when you push the Throttle up.

Set the Low Dual Rates at 50% and Expo at +30%. Usually Parkzone suggests where to start with Travel, D/R, and Expo.

Be sure the CG is correct (Balance). If you can, have an experienced pilot fly a Trim Flight and suggest any changes to the Control Throws.
