Painting the T-28

What paint will adhere very good to the Air Force T 28? Is there a primer needed?

Home Depot Glidden samples don't stick......after a sample dried, I rolled and rubbed it off with my finger!!

Thanks,
Andy

curious what your experience was as in what prop, esc, lipo, amps etc...

Yup, for the last 2 years... also in my Mustang.

I use the Corsair 3 blade as my prefered prop but also the stock 2 blade Trojan prop. I really like the handling and control with the 3 blade... seems to make a difference to me. Speed is good and thrust excellent.

I'm using a 40A ESC (HK SuperSimple) with 2200mAh batteries... anything from 20C to 40C. The power with the 3 blade is 328W and with the 2 blade 303W (Stock motor is 220W with the 2 blade prop).

I find it a great reliable motor that is faster and stronger than stock but still light and conservative with the mA's. I easily get 12 min flights.

You must run a serarate BEC then right? I didn't think the SS ESC had any sort of onboard BEC.

I'd be interested in an answer for this too. No plans for awhile to do any mods, as I still only have 2 flights on mine, but maybe down the road I'll be in the mood for a re-paint.

From what i've read the Krylon "fusion" for plastics rattle can paint works well.

I have the same set up in mine and with an 11x7 it has unlimited but very slow vertical. You have to keep on the rudder and elevator to keep the nose up but it does keep climbing.

It's not necessary - and, in fact, there may be a weight penalty. It depends on the tuning of the whole plane (trims, CoG, etc.).

For sheer power the Turnigy 35-36 can hardly be beat. And coupled with a high-amp ESC (40-60A) it doesn't matter on what I previously mentioned on the weight penalty.

That said, I'm pretty happy with my Power 10 / 40A ESC combo, coupled with an MAS 10x7x3. If it DOES stop climbing in the vertical, my eyes aren't good enough to perceive it. lol!

For speed, you'd probably want to go with a 10 or 11 - maybe 12 (clearance, though) diameter and 9-10 in pitch. Not on 'stock' rig, though. I don't have much interest in sheer speed, myself.

oh my gosh. I was thinking that we were in the P47 thread. Yes the 3536 is a beast in this plane. It is super duper way faster than stock. And a pretty quick unlimited vertical as well. You will be very happy with it. I am actually trying to put my 3536 in my t-28 right now. I have ran it in 4 other birds the same size and weight and I just haven't put it in the ole t-28 yet cause I don't have an esc yet.

LOL! I did the same thing a week ago, thinking I was posting in the PZ Stinson SR-10 thread.

I had to "walk-back" a lot of throws and CoG comments.

so a turnigy 35-36 and a 40-60 ESC will make this baby a rocket? like are we talking close to 100 MPH/hour?

what about flight times?

I guess 4S lipo would add considerable more weight, throw off CG ect, a high out put 3S like the ones I have which are 2200 MAH 25C should work.

I dont necessary want something that is stupid fast.. I like speed sure enough, but climb out power and acceleration are what I crave
