i've been using 850 and 1300mah 4s batteries lately. much more power when you need it especially for thrust, vertical, etc. 1300 fit much better though. 850 are a bit loose and you need to secure them well.

those dubro are a little tight at first but wear in fine.

I had 2 of these.nice flyers. ..cheap HK servos, motor, esc. Trick is to use nylon blots for gear, they break before the balsa. Doing it again I would go for a 3D Hobby Shop 42" Slick or the more durable 3DHS 40" Edge. I would have gotten to where I am now a lot sooner. Less sport, more aerobatic/3D.

My last flght before I boxed it up and shipped it to a guy. I also had a few bigger 50" Pulse XT. Another good flyer.

exactly what I did. MPXT after the T-28.

I mentioned the Edge and Slick because they make very good sport planes to. But also have the ability to go further....if one chooses to. The Edge with it's $99 price(now $109) and wire gear have only been out for a couple years.

I have plenty of the Turnegy 2200 batts and I understand that I may have to make some mods to make this size batt. fit, is this correct? Thanks.
I have experimented with lots of Propellers and the best that I keep putting on all my STOCK F4U and T-28, T-28D "is" the Master Airscrew 3-Blade, 10 X 7 X 3 propeller. Yes, it is classified as a glow propeller but, the inner hub fits nicely on the Stock T-28 Prop Adapter and F4U adapter. A few who have purchased this propeller have told me that they had to ream out the propeller some but, I don't understand this since I have slip all that I have purchased directly on the Stock Prop adapters.

Okay, using 25C discharge Turnigy 3-Cell, 2200mAH, Li-POLYs or similar, your effective airspeed will be very good and thrust is good as well. The Master Airscrew is very robust, much more so than the Park Zone 3-Blade in my opinion.

Assuming you do have the T-28 with the STOCK power system, try out the 3-Blade 10 X 7 X 3 from Master Airscrew and make sure you use 25C discharge as a minimum in the 3-Cell, 2200mAH cells and you will see a significant performance increase, both in airspeed and thrust. I can command my T-28's to maintain continuous Knife Edge all around the field.

Good luck!
Carlos

BTW: A few pictures of my T-28D with the MAS 3-Blade:

This forum is huge! I need to replace the motor on my t28 (after a mis-calculated splash down with the floats on)
Wouldnt mind some more power on this bird.
I mostly fly 3s 2200 30c batts. Can we discuss motor options (I guess an esc replacement as well)

Just a though but if your electronics are just wet. Put them in a bowl of uncooked rice for a few days. Then power them up.

Did you let the motor dry out real good before trying it? Motor under water usually not a deadly thing if you let it dry. I have a little turnigy 35-30 on my mus that's been underwater 3 times. It's still on the plane, only motor thats been on the plane. ESC's not so lucky.

What I did after I recovered it with my kayak was, dry it off (salt water...) with a towel, held it upside down ran the motor through various throttle positions then flew again right away
Before long the motor started making a loud noise and stopped spinning in flight. I lowered and cranked the throttle and it came back just it ime to give me a smooth landing. Bought it in the house and hung it upside down. Got up this morning and although the motor runs it make a whining sound and it seems there is some resistance.
When I get home I plan on taking it apart.
Any other advice is greatly appreciated.

You have corrosion build up most likely. Salt motor in particular does not work well with electronics.

This will sound odd but run cold tap water thru it before putting it in a bowl of rice. But I suspect the damage is done.

Well next time I would probably end the flying day if it went into the water. If salt rinse it with fresh, then dry it inside and out, overnight. Maybe some WD 40, etc. On mine 2 were in fresh water(2-3 minute dunks), one in brackish for about 30 minutes. Prolly a 50/50 if it can be saved.
