My video for the day. Dang wet field blew water on the lense. It looks like some of it dried part way through. This may be as high as I've been straight up, still can't get that perfect shot when I level out to see how high.

Enjoy... Rob

it was decent weather here, just cold today. too cold to fly(30 degrees). But saturday I got a good 30 minutes in. I got about 15 good touch and goes...only one small incident, the wind blew from the side as i was turning and it tipped over upside down haha. I noticed that my left wheel is coming loose. But I'm getting about 30 minutes a flight outta my stock battery. I give it about 3/4 throttle to takeoff. then cut to half throttle and go up about 300-400 ft and cut the power and it'll glide a nice while. I can still do rolls and a loop or two with it gliding. then I land. Then a few minutes i'll do nothing but takeoff do a circuit and land to get some touch n go's in. And of course I have a few minutes of full throttle to get some inverted and flips and spins in. All that adds up to about 23-30 minutes.

T-28 and F4U are both Awesome. They both handle about the same= OUTSTANDING!! Your going to have to go ahead and have both. To me RC Flying is kinda like building plastic display models. The only difference is the RC's are displayed dynamically. Thats what I say when people ask why I have so many. Even if 2 planes fly the same, they still look different and that is a substantial difference.

T28 First flight and wreck

I had the T28 with me at work. All my batteries were topped off so I took it to the flying field and there was no wind and no one else flying as I expected at 10 degrees out. I flew it around for about 10 minutes with about 4-5 landings. After landing long I decided to take off the other way and see how that went. well long story short I got out of control to close to the ground and sprialed in. The wing is in one piece but it broke out the mounts. Allso the nose riped off right fwd of the canopy. Looks easy enough to fix and i was told I would be doing this at some point when i have a wreck. Where is info on the good fixes for this damage? I was planning on just epoxying the foam parts back together. And mods that helps with this damage? I'm going to start reading thru these main posts on the T28 to see what I find. That was my first flight of an Ailerion RC plane and I would call it a sucess even though its in a few pieces now. The plane really flies nice and easy if you have the basic idea of RC flying.

Your on the right track - I use CA vs epoxy but only as I hate waiting for the stuff to dry... I've had a similar crash (stuck it in tree and had to throw balls to get it out) wing ripped off at the bolt area and tail broke off... CA and 15 min later it was flying again - there just as easy to repair as they are to fly

Best of luck with it m8,

Steve

It happens, I broke the nose off one of mine on the first flight to, came in a lot faster than the Skyflys and smacked a curb. I fixed mine with white gorilla glue. I like the expanding action to fill the voids. It's help up well. You just have to tape the 2 pieces together while it expands. You can also use this glue to fill puncture holes and such. After it expands out, just cut it flush. I use a slow set CA with the activator spray for most other stuff.

Here is that very plane with the bigger motor and prop. You can see the crack and where the tape removed the paint. I'm not to fickle about the way my planes look at the moment. It is a "T" rated plane anyway!

And if you go back a few posts to the youtube I posted, yep, the same fixed plane is the one in the video.

Post some pics for us.
