Rob and Prof have been on here beatin this same horse with myself and a few others for over a year now. T28 and the corsair. What ever happened to Papabatman? Good to see you fellers still kickin, Happy holidays bro's!!!

PS I remember that vid Bill
That motor is a workshorse. I just put one in Funcub with guess what? An 11x7 prop. Now I tend to run a 50 amp or 60 amp ESC just for safety sake since the latest batteries can deliver a lot more current.

Bigger esc is not a bad idea. Awesome looking lil bush flier there. Love those huge tires.
Kinds sux that HK raised the prices on the motors and esc's after we put the word out and that setup got popular. Keep waiting for my royalty checks but never seem to come.

I think a 50 amp would be sufficent but ESCs tend to come in 40 amp then 60 amp. The Funcub is running a 60 amp Hobbywing.

The Funcub is another great offering by Multiplex. The German engineering is apparent when you build it albeit the instructions have some holes in them. I have only been able to fly it one time since I built it. It's a very fun plane.

I have a soft spot for Multiplex myself, stemming from my first bird years ago being the easy star. They do make a decent flying kit. I still have an EZ and a couple Twinstars. Nothing stock of course. The one Twinstar has twin Himax 2815-2000 motors on it. And for a big heavy plane it moves right along and quite aerobatic for a foamie trainer

The Easy Star has created a cottage industry of clones. I have one NIB I want to build for FPV.

Saw that Funcub at the I Hobby show, it was a little bigger than I though it would be. Looked like a really cool plane, didn't realize that the large wheels were foam, wondering how they would holdup on pavement landings?

Hey everyone!

I'm looking to buy the T28 RTF kit for my second plane after my multiplex easy star. Anyone have any suggestions on where the best place to buy it would be?

Thanks!

Local shop if you can. Every place sells them for within $10 of MSRP, so if you can skip the shipping by going local, thats the way to get it the cheapest.

Most LHS's will have T-28's, they're a very common plane.

I concur, support your local economy and buy from your local hobby shop if you have one within driving distance. If not you may be able to find some deals on Ebay or shop for the the lowest shipping among the on-line vendors.

Im thinking about buying the Parkzone t28d trojan for my second plane. Currently I have a Hobbyzone Super Cub, converted to my dx6i. I was wondering if the t28 has any known issues or bad habits? Ive been doing research and it looks like a great flyer. Thanks.

Its a great 2nd plane. You'll love it but stock its not the greatest performer but for a 2nd plane you will be very satisfied and when the time comes you can do some upgrades, motor etc.

Some people have complained about the AR500 that comes in them but so far I been good with it.

So whats the best solution for when the battery compartment starts to loosen up? My batteries are sliding in and out with no friction. Or does the foam that sticks down below the canopy hold it in place when the canopies down?
