I flew this past saturday around 7:30am when it was still 22 out or so - broke one tooth off the main gear on my raptor 50 and tail blades had hairline cracks. They didn't crack on their own one rough landing with some literaly numb thumbs is all it took... Luckily the t28 doesn't have too much plastic besides the NG to break and prob would of made it better

Hi guys, i broke my steering arm in a crash and was real surprised to see you couldn't buy that part you would have to replace the fuselage that

well i looked around and found the DU-BRO 1-1/4" Nylon Steering Arm for 5/32" Nose Gear Wire (Cat No. 166) now this was all our hobbie stores had it was way too big but was Nylon and had a Brass insert with a Real screw

i got the hobby grinder going and shaped it down to size, the first standard hole was in the right place, so it was easy to do.

I had bought some 5/32" tube when i bought the larger wheels for the T-28 so i just cut a piece the right size drilled a hole in it so the lock screw could get through to the landing gear rod and fitted it all, much stronger than stock and only cost me $2.50

sorry, quality of photos not that good, but you get the idea

cheers chuck
