I was just browsing You Tube for Trojans with retract mods and came across this customized Parkzone T28.
I don't know if this plane has featured in the thread before, but I was just blown away.

So....

I know someone that has all of the GWS Slow Sticks and has every Color that came out. He has two of each, just in case.

The funny thing "is" he still Loves his Original faded RED one with the STOCK EPS350 GWS power "Brushed Motor in Gearbox" system!

i dont but if you youtube custom t-28 paint jobs you will find it. its a video of all the planes sitting outside of his house as he pans over the lot! very impressive. he also has individual vids of some of the other versions as well. that one is probablt my favorite though. talk about obsession! lol.

Hey guys,
I am kind of wanting to rebuild my original t-28. It was my first 4 channel plane and I have always said that I will never get rid of it. It has some pretty good hangar rash though. I really don't want to redo my flaps but I just might... Anyway, it would cost around $100 for wings, tail and fuse at hobbyzone.com anyone seen the parts cheaper anywhere else? Its the white one by the way

I got a BNF T-28 in October and had DX5e remote that I got to use with a Super Cub. Setting up the remote for the T-28 out of the box both plane and remote work perfectly. For Christmas I decided I wanted a remote that I could bind both my T-28 and my Super Cub too so I picked up a DX6i off Amazon. I binded both planes to the remote and everything on the ground seemed to work fine. I took my Super Cub out and it flew just fine once I trimed it out, it did seem a little sluggish (I figured it was because I had been flying the T-28 and was used to that) but flew fine. So I went to fly the T-28 and less then a second after takeoff the plane began and uncommanded left aileron roll and hit the ground, doing a fair bit of damage. I figured it was something I did or the trim was way off, so I fixed the plane, set some trim to counter the roll and went out to fly it again. The same thing happen less then a second off the ground and it had rolled to the left, no slower then the first time cause another crash. Now what I dont under stand is that the plane worked fine with my old controller and just changing controller seem to do this. The Super Cub works ok with the new controller but not the T-28, so I am left with a question is it with the plane or the controller, has anyone heard of anything like this or has anything that may help me?
Thank you for your time.

Are you sure your ailerons aren't reversed on the new TX. I know mine were when I moved my PZ T-28 Trojan from my Spektrum DX6i to my new DX7s. Did you even do a ground check? We had a new guy out at the field last week and even though he did a ground check on his new plane, he didn't notice that the ailerons were reversed. The result, exactly like you described.
