*ESM T-28 Torjan*

ESM is coming out with an 80" T-28 Trojan that can be powered by a 40-50cc gasser. Very nice looking plane but it wont be available until April or May of 2010.

Thats sick! Ive always loved the trojan. This would be a great candidate for a little scale bashing. Any word on the price? retracts?

webdr,

I was told the price would be well under $490.00. The plane will use retracts. Fiber glass fuse and built up wing and tail feathers covered in Solotex and painted. You can use the ESM retracts that have not be made yet or when the delivery of the prototype is in it will be sent to Seirra to have a set made as well. So I'm told.

Oh boy, just what I need - another T-28....gotta love that bird! Any chance it would come ARC instead of ARF? Not a fan of the yellow.....but it sure would show up well in the sky

I dont think any of the other ESm birds come RTC, so I doubt this one will be. Since the wings are sheeted foam core and the fuse id glass, it will be a prime candidate for a glassing and painting

ESM is Ever Soaring Model and they are a Chinese company. There seems to be a even mix of good and not so good reports on quality, but overall the report is decent. Do a google search for more opinions.

ESM was, until recently, marketed as KMP. Still YT is Britain

I guess it will also be my first 2-stroke. It is a shame there are not more gasoline 4-strokes.
The Saito FG-36 is probably not enough power for me and hell's bells it is expensive!


Perhaps a DA-50
