F2F,

You can't blame me for wanting to be ready! I downloaded the manual (to keep the box pristine) and have it next to the King's throne. I'm ready. I have everything except the servos. I'll have that baby ready to fly in a matter of hours after the word GO! Before noon on Xmas day.

Servos? So many choices. I've searched alot of seller's websites. I just want 4 that match or are very close to the dimensions that the manual calls for without paying $100. There has to be some that are drop in's somewhere?

Servos? My weak spot. But I'm learning. If anyone here is a servo guru, here is a link to the servos that are prescribed. IM me with your thoughs and I will be greatly appreciative.

Hey guys! I'm new to this website, but it looks like a great place to get the information I need as I am somewhat new to this hobby!

As of now, I've gotten pretty good at flying my first plane (a multiplex easy star), and am looking for a second plane (preferably one with airlerons).

Would the Trojan T28 RTF version be a good choice? If you could, let me know how the Trojan compares to some of the other good options for a second plane after a Multiplex Easy Star.

Thanks!

Hey Fire,
First off welcome to RC Groups. Youre following exactly in my footsteps from EZ* to Trojan. The trojan is a very stable airframe to learn ailerons with. I actually put ailerons on my EZ about the same time I got the trojan (a few years back). The trojan is very forgiving in flight and more importantly, quite easy to fix. Grab one and enjoy!!!

I have to add that if youre planning on staying in the sport and have a couple extra dollars, dont go with the RTF. Get yourself a DX6i or other computer tx and just buy the pnp version. The radio equip in the RTF is going to get "old school" on you very quickly

Awesome! Thanks!

I was wondering how much more powerful this plane is than the Easy Star? Also, if I got skilled enough and wanted to, how difficult and expensive it would be to make an upgrade on it to where it could have extremely good vertical?

Also, where would be the best (cheapest) place to buy the rtf kit?

Hmm okay, so it looks like the pnp versions run about 180 and the rtf versions run about 250. The pnp's need a radio and battery to fly am I correct? I don't have a charger for lipo's as well, so if it doesn't come with a charger, I will need one of those too. Between the dx6i which i think runs about 150 and the charger i might need plus the 180, this might be a little outside the price range i can ask from my parents from christms. I will definitely consider it though!

Here's some of the cheapest and best upgrades out there. The Hobbyking HK Turnigy G10, a power 10 clone for $40 cheaper

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=14403

HK Turnigy 2200mah Batteries, about $35 cheaper

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=8932

HK OrangeRX, about $40 cheaper

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=11965

HXT900 Servo's. $10 ea cheaper times 3. You'll need a Metal Gear Rudder/Steering Servo

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...?idProduct=662

HK Turnigy 30a ESC, $30 cheaper

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=2164




Your chooses are Bind-N-Fly BNF, Plug-N-Play PNP or buy the individual parts. If you buy the individual part you can save by buying the HK products.

Bind and fly is the most complete and Horizon is currently doing free shipping. You'll need a Spekrum radio transmitter for the BNF Plane. The PNP you'll need to supply your TX, RX, Battery and charger.

Interesting! Thank you for the info!

It looks like I will be able to get the RTF version for 250, which would be 10 dollars more than the BNF without a radio. I think I will probably go with the RTF version to simplify things for me to begin with, then later down the road maybe upgrade the radio. Thanks for the input!

Also what would it take to upgrade the t28 to get unlimited vertical?
