Oh I think he is just an older fella and not too up to speed with computers and such. Heck if you'd of asked me ten years ago how to post a youtube link I wouldn't have a clue... and I'm only 30. I'm sure he'll find us and jump right in.... but your right he would fit in great here.

Oh I know, no disrespect intended. Im 45 and struggle thru everything on this puter thing the first time but its self explanatory and un intimidating once you getter goin. Like I said no disrespect intended and look forward to chattin with him. Another brain to pick!!!
I help out alot of my club members that are "above me in age" with the puter stuff. Links are very helpful. I just send em to them and say "click on this" and they getter done. LOL showing them how to "favorite" or "bookmark" really helps alot too.

Looks like 10 minute flights are the rule. Worth the trip out despite the weather. You folks up north flying in the snow and frigid cold are my heros.
Not sure if hero's is the right word.

A question that's been bothering me. Just got a T-28 PNP and got it set up to fly but I'm baffled by the battery locations I see in all the posted pics. My Trojan came out of the box quite nose heavy with no battery installed. CG is about 1.5" aft of LE 1" out from fuse. In order to get it back to the 2.25" most people report preferring, I have to mount the battery as far aft of the CG as I can get it. This seems to conflict with all the pics I see which show the batteries mounted well forward of the CG, even protruding into the ESC compartment.

I'm using 2200mah Zippy 3s and a Spektrum 6100rx. Everything else is stock, no changes. Am I the only one who got a nose heavy plane?

can you take a pic of your battery location?

Couple of questions:

First: I am fitting my second Trojan with a 3536C Turnigy 1450Kv motor. I will be using 3300Mah 30C batteries with this one.
Should I still get a 40a ESC, or should I move up to 60a?

(I currently have a Turnigy 1100Kv on my first Trojan, with a 40a ESC, I am wondering if 1450Kvs requires more a's in the ESC than 1100Kvs)

Second: Trojans come with AR500 rx's. Is it worth considering 6200's as an upgrade? The reason I am considering them is because I have experienced a brown out with the AR500 that made me lose a fuselage. Just would like to avoid that sort of thing again.

Out of the box my plane was nose heavy too. Once I put the receiver battery in place back where the indentation is, that sort of evened everything out.

I noticed that my ParkZone battery can fit either vertically or horizonitally in the battery space. I place my horizonitally so that I can slide it a bit further into the area behind the engine. This gives me the best balance.

I have 1oz of lead on the tail (horizontal stab) and secure my battery 1" into the foam bumps towards the RX tray (space). The forward end of the battery is barely under the 'foam bridge'.

I substituted the motor for a Turnigy 35-30 SK 1100kV but otherwise stock.

After a great day of flyin I have a question for the group. Wanting to get faster rolls I increased the travel adjustment on the ailerons to 125%(DX6i) This did help but would like it even faster. I have now moved the clevis to the bottom hole of the control as in the pic's. This seems to give me almost another 1/4" of movement. Seems to move pretty fast too, maybe I need some exponential now.Am I crazy to try this or has someone else already done this who could give me some advice?

I finally maidened my T-28 today. I got it for christmas and it sat in the box until last week when I put it together. I ordered some 2200mah 3s 30c batteries and was waiting to get them before I flew my T-28 but I just couldn't wait any longer so I dug out an old 2200mah 3s 15c battery that I have not used in months. I charged up the battery and did a range test. All was well so I took her up. Once I trimmed it out I had a grin on my face from ear to ear. I think I'm in love.
