Got mine at the LHS. Price of about 2.50 to 3.00 is close enough to any internet price. Just just have them in boxes on the wall. All kinds. I went with a regular prop, not an E prop(didn't know there was a E (electric) for a while). Previous page there is a pic of the MAS prop. Last one I tried a APC gray colored prop. Didn't look as good but LHS guy says they seem to work better and are better balanced. Who knows, same price and they looked more agressive.

To fit in the stock adapter, you need a METRIC prop reamer. I think "standard" props come about 1/4" ID hole. The T-28 prop ID hole is 8mm. Who knows why they didn't go standard....that's right parts sales.

Got my reamer off the net for $13, LHS only had a US size. Real easy to do, takes 30 seconds to ream one out and its pretty fool proof.

The motor shaft is 4mm so you could buy a standard e-flight adapter.

guys, just got back from flying- i was a bout 10* from disaster

was rolling at about 10 feet, giving down when the plane was invertd, and up when normal to keep the 10 feet of altitude i had (continuous aileron deflection, just move from top right to bottom right) and all of a sudden i heard a shout from a kid somewhere, it distracted me, and i accidentally pulled up while inverted at 10 feet. went straight towards the ground, time kinda slowed down, and i was sure it was a goner. i forgot to let go of aileron (or mabe i ment to keep holdong it and by some miracle it hit wheels first. the canopy flew off ( i was expecting an explosion- had been at WOT) and it bounced back into the air and kept flying! i flipped the flaps down ( going towards a wall) and landed with bout 20 feet to spare. hte only damage so far is the front wheel is bent back, and one of hte wing wheel mounts is cracked...

Better lucky than good sometimes!

My son thinks it's hilarious when my pilot pulls the eject handle!

Look forward to pics and video of how it flys.

That prop was intended for a Predator UAV I got from UH (Looks fantastic BTW)

The 10 Inch prop protrudes below the virtical tail so Im using it on the T28 instead.

There's nothing stopping me from putting in the 1250kv version which would prob suit the prop a bit better.

Im just playing it safe untill I see how it flys.

Just ordered a new Trojan after having crashed my beloved old one. I have been looking into the Parkzone Corsair and the EFlite Sea Fury. I still like the Sea Fury very much with the high "cool" factor having retracts and the Corsair is just plain beautiful, being a warbird.

But, I figured, with the Trojan having main and nose gears, take off's and landings are so much easier for me on the rough grass fields I fly off. Sure, I can always belly land the corsair or Sea Fury but I just love to do ROG's and touch and go's.

So, an other Trojan it is. I will look into adding flaps on the new one and make it a bit more scale looking. And the old airframe makes for great parts.

Well, only a few more days to wait before the Trojan arrives from Germany here in Holland. Most versatile and enjoyable plane I have ever had!

How is this comparable in performance to the stock motor? Is a 40a esc needed or will the stock 30a suffice?

That motor should be killer, looks to have more power than my 35-36c. I run the 11x7.5, you seen the vertical videos? You'll have to relearn the throttle, it moves. If you keep that motor you really should ditch the stock plastic mount for one of the ebay metal mounts for $20. I don't have one but I know how easy it is to break the plastic mount, I broke one on the bench with a slightly out of balance prop!

Awaiting you hear your flight report!

Hey, Y'all

Some really sweet looking T-28s here. I bought one from a guy getting out of the hobby and am painting it in Marine colors. I decided to use craft paints as they were closest to what I was trying to reproduce. BIG MISTAKE! The paint is sooo thin, it's taking too many coats to cover! Hopefully, it'll still look good when finished. Pice below of the plane I'm copying- pics of the plane coming soon.

I need a speed control for it. Without spending the money Park Zone wants for theirs, Has anyone found a good, cheaper one to use?

The Tower Pro, the first one, I used the 25A version for awhile and had no problems. The second is what I'm currently running and believe it to be of excellent quality. The last one is from HeadsUpRC which I have bought numerous things from in the past. You can get the last speed control with connectors and everything for under $30 shipped which would be cheaper than the Hobby City ones. Personally, I really don't see the need for anything near a 60A ESC for this plane.
