Here are some pics of my 'new' T-28, formerly belonging to my friend Doug Cohen who is a master figure painter and a true artist with an airbrush!

The problem is that nothing I do seems to repair that crack in the firewall to keep the gear from doing the same thing over again. I've tried epoxy, CA, CA+hinge tape (for the springiness) and even gluing carbon fiber strips over the area in front and behind the firewall... Nothing stops it, although to be fair the last was another nasty nose-first landing (unexpected TX battery failure, it was get it down fast or not at all).

Anyone have any other suggestions? I'm hoping that the carbon fiber will hold through most normal uses, but I've had to fix this thing about every other flight and it's getting old... Hoping for a permanent fix here.

Thanks.
This is working for me, regular 1/4" ply and screws, no glue. Many other ways.

If you get time start making your way back through the thread, lots of info. You can get through it. I usually look for the pictures first.

Good Luck,
Rob

Dawnron1 - Skyraider

Amazed of detail.. If you do an A1-A skyraider please post..

An A1 Pilot saved my life in 1968 being close air support in an area about four soccer feilds in area.

That Tank of an Airplane was like a "crop duster" in a very small valley, and was able to climb out without hitting the hills. He was probable shitting his pants. I also was terrified, and pity-ed the poor opposing troops. What a waste of good troops.

The Dougles Sky Raider and it's little know cousin that lost the bidding war to the Raider, the Martin Mauler were amazing aircraft.... They could lift their weight in armament, an accomplishment still not met today. The only one that comes close is the A-10 Thunderbolt.

Check You Tail

Yesterday my PZ Typhoon ran away from home (field).

Really windy day, but got in two short flights at our local field. Immediately after takeoff on the third flight the plane pitched up and I couldn't get any down elevator response. As it continued to pitch toward level (inverted) I would roll it so it was then pitching up again and not split S into the ground. I kept this up until it got to maybe 150 ft, all the while it was being blown far over the surrounding trees. Realizing that there was no way to get it back to the runway area I chopped power and watched it flip flop flutter down well behind the surrounding trees.

Found it after a couple hours search in a small tree unscathed! Sure enough, up elevator was OK but no down elevator. Thought initially it might be a stripped servo, but on closer inspection saw that the entire horizontal stabilizer was moving aft when down elevator was commanded(elevator horn is on the top)! All 4 pieces of the tape holding the stab to the fuselage had come loose!

I checked my PZ Corsair today and the tape on it is also starting to loosen, so I'm on the way to check my T-28 as well.

I'm not set against the technique of tape securing the stab as it makes it easy to remove for repair or replacement, but from now on i will be periodically changing the tape with some good strapping type.

Y'all be careful now, ya heah!

I agree, I put this motor on both my Trojan and Corsair with the Plush 40A ESC. You can still fly just as slow as stock, but you get a lot more power when you want it! Loads of fun and quite inexpensive. It's equivalent to a power 10 on 3 cells, though I dont' think it'll handle 4 cells like the Power 10 will. However, it's less than half the price of the power 10.
