I stalled onto the nose wheel, causing it to push back into the fusilage.

Fixed it up using about 1" of a popsicle stick and 5 minute epoxy. Nothing fancy, no removal of foam, the stick just slides down the gap. Seems to be stronger that the original stock, so we'll have to see if it holds up.

I'm trying for a more scale look. Want to upgrade the cockpit along with
retracts, lights and maybe flaps. Right now using flaperons and they seem to work ok.
Questions:
1) Has anyone fiberglassed this? I'm thinking 3/4 oz w/ wbpu
2) Any motor upgrades?
3) Any three bladed props that will work here?
4) Anyone know the c/g?

Any info will be appreciated.

Smoke if you got 'em and watch the replies. I will take #2. Search for "35-36C motor mount" in this thread and you'll find tons of posts. Here is a link to on board video of it wearing out a lipo. The video camera weighs another 5 ounces.

I stripped an aeileron servo on a belly landing and have to replace it. I have a couple of HXT900's that I will put in. Has anyone used these? Are they slower than the original digital servos?

Yes, they work fine. All of the planes I have of this size fly with the venerable HXT 900 servos. They're too cheap to even bother repairing.

You are welcome. The video is from last year and the plane is still flying fine. I took the gear off for more air speed. It's also suffered one crash due to making a final approach into the setting sun. I had to pluck it from a farmer's muddy corn field.

I found out like some did here you have to replace both with the hxt900. When I tried replacing just 1, they both moved in the same direction if I recall. I guess it's the 2 digital servos, have no idea. Just a heads up.

I replaced my ailerons with them, even though only one stripped. Its good to have them the same.

Works fine for me.

Well, I CRUNCHED my T-28 today. It was totally pilot error...I took of with my TX set to my Mini Pulse XT and ailerons were reversed. It went in to a shipping container at about 3/4 throttle and really exploded on impact. They all have to die sometime, and at least mine went out with a bang. Not sure if I will get another T-28, try the Corsair out, or wait for PZs suspected release later this summer.

I hit a rock on take off today and the same happened to me. I'm gonna have to come out with something like that also.
