It's more for FPV Racing than Stealth Works :-)

Some video of why I like my T-28 so much. I will apologize in advance, this our first ever digital video camera so our filming is not very good. My wife was struggling to keep the plane in the frame.

Here's a take off with a tail dragger. I'll make an excuse here and say that I am used to rudder being on the left stick, but I know that's a weak excuse....

00007 (0 min 19 sec)


Here's a take off with my T-28

00015 (0 min 30 sec)


For me, it's much easier to keep a tricycle gear plane straight on the runway. I'll get better at the tail draggers, but the trike is sooooo nice!

Nice
The T28 is great for scale take offs.
I really dislike unrealistic warp speed departures!

The take-off was pretty good, but here's the first landing from Saturday. Fortunately, no damage, not even a nicked prop. The subsequent landings were much better. I need MORE stick time. My dad just had a knee replacement, so he's got my simulator, getting ready to fly his new Apprentice. It's a sacrifice but it's worth it

It's just too bad the other two landings didn't get filmed, they were so much better!! This landing is definitely not "scale"....

T-28 bumpy landing (1 min 15 sec)

Like they say, "Any landing you can walk away from is a good one."

ERGO: "Any landing that doesnt end up with scattered foam is a good one."

The sad part is that this was really the only bad approach with the T-28. After this first flight, I was much more relaxed and everything got smoother... stupid jitters.....

Speaking of scattered foam, I just had my first plane wreck I have had a HZ SC for a while never wrecked. But had to happen sometime. Anyways gust of wind coaught my T-28 while I was doing a turn, flying kinda low. Threw it right into a tree. Split in half fusaloge, damaged wing broken cowel. Sucks. But electronics are good :thumbup:going to rebuild tomorrow. Anyone know what that glue is that they use for the servos and esc ? I need some
