The Goose got goosed, tooo funny. Watching the Jug and the adventure you are providing us, gives me a real heads up when I start to fly the Big Boys.
Great Job Blu

Gonna take my time little here, little there, and dont know which one to try first. I'll let you guys know how it goes. Much too windy to fly Champ today 15-20mph. Can you tell I like the yellow and red scheme

Ya know, I have no idea yet. I used way too much glue on the Blue one and it is heavier than the bigger yellow one. Gonna need to find out before I order a motor.

I placed it in, went for a spin, I made sure I had my glasses on, the Sun recorders, and Hd cam on floor. hope I got footage, as always I forget to delete old files LOL.

I got height, I want more height, I want great height, only if She wants to go, the T28 will go, she is tricky to get her high, you have to build her, or fenice her in incriments, and that was what I did.

At one time I got her sweetly up there, and She WOOSSHHED by me like mac II heard a Boom.

I even was out of control, and never panic'ed, was invert to the tree and just responded with a stick move this way, that way, and I heard a SPIT- she reflected and missed those Huge arms reaching out. like a rebound shot. I hope again I got it all on film. I was CCC cool calm and collective, lets leave collective out of this. no peices to pick up, that is A plus for me LOL.

I am loving this T28, but its only sesson Four and that I have stepped up to the plate here. how sweet it is.

Said no flying, and I just needed a taiste. well enough said. wait for the vid. I think the Trojan was showing off out there
The T wil carry the 808, But COG is critical or she goes crazy in a hurry. If you are going to try go nose heavy, I went twords the tail and man did that suck, as I kept thinking I could save her got to 50 feet and it was cut the power and get out the tape lol

If that is so, I am amazed of the power, and length I flew. I feel its a lot longer thaan the champs batt time, could this be possable due to different motors and esc if being the same or different?

Champ is a lighter plane, while T28 is heavier?
Actually what makes the difference is your flying. I use to get 8-10 minutes easily from my 150's, now because I fly almost WOT all the time, I maybe get 5-6. The T-28 makes you want to fly harder and better because it's so much fun.

Blue I get 6 min safe but after pushing hard on new stunts hit LVC at 5. So I agree 100% how you fly makes a diffrence. Also one of the 120 always played short. But 99% 6 min is safe

I think things will go OK, She is bound and op's check done all flight surfaces work, motor up to 50% check. Had noticed up deflection on elevator mechanical trimmed flat aircraft, was powered up and TX on trims at Zero. rudder had slight deflection to the left now straight. (pinched the loop on both)
made sure both wheels rolled with no interference ( snicker). But I watched your Vid and eliminated a possible issue (thanks blu)
