Also what is a good size of carbon fiber rod to use to reinforce the wing? I'm switching over to a 4s setup and want to keep the wings from folding.
I have plenty of pushrods. IM me.

I used a 2mm cf rod in my wing.

So I have built me up a T-28 from all the spare parts I had bought thinking I would need replacements for my first T-28 but it made it through me learning to fly still intact! So in my second T-28 I am using this set-up ...... Turnigy D3536/8 1000KV Brushless Outrunner , Hobbyking SS Series 50-60A ESC ,3s 2200mah lipo's and I am looking for prop suggestions? Yes I am reading through the thread(actually started reading posts from a year ago forward!LOL) but there is just so much info and I am trying the search button too....any help would be great!

I have the D3536/9 (910kV) on 3S in one of my T-28's and am running the 10x10E. Fast, no issues other than sucking the life out of my batteries in 6 1/2 minutes!

10x6 prop. I had that motor, sold it, got the D3542/1250kv. Both are great motors.

I have both, but the big one will fly anytime in wind, the micro gets tossed around by the wind pretty good.

It won't go forward into wind at maybe 10mph or so. But it takes a lot of turbulence if you don't mind it bouncing around some, and is a lot better than say the mustang in the wind.

the micro t28 can fly in any wind you are brave enough to fly in. i have had her going backward at wot before. if you keep her pointed into the wind she will surf the turbulance just fine. its alot of fun but just dont let her get slammed into the ground in wind like that! bad news for sure.
