I have both versions of the full sized, as much as I like the micro's I need to resist this micro 28. Trying to wait for a micro jet from PZ. Already have two PZ micro's
I'm thinking it should fly pretty close to it. While it's the heaviest, it also has the largest wingspan at 16.5 inches. I believe the current available largest is the Hobby zone champ, with a 15 inch wingspan. FWIW, the champ also has a larger box than the UM P51. That extra weight is probably due to nose steering gear and just it's overall size.

That said, the champ flies like a much larger model, very docile and floaty. My guess is the Micro T-28 will be stable, with predictable stall and great tracking. It might do ok in light breezes too.


whats irksome is that we won't see these till October (although the wild cat came in pretty quick), right around when we loose daylight, and those perfectly quiet summer evenings.

The Champ has a 20.25" wingspan and is huge compared to other PKZ micros, but flies fine @ 41g (empty weight is 37g) and will loop from level flight at full throttle. A Mustang Motor should fly a 50 gram plane OK, and the T-28 will likely have a Mustang Motor.

If the um t28 flies great like the big brother sign me up. I have had many foam edge and rag planes and the trojan is the best. Everyone says the same thing.

I think you can manage to start a second row or maybe build another deck for the other micros that are coming!

Way to many airplanes!
I once went to the Hobby store to get a motor for my micro Mustang. They told me I had to wait one week to get one. I ordered it, but then bought a second Mustang on the spot so I could fly that week. Now, I have one at work and one at home. No need to carry the box every day anymore.

I use to have 6 Vapors as well. (now only 5). Two are at work, and 3 at home. I let anybody fly my Vapors, so they are quite often on the bench. Sure enough, a few spares are a surely welcome.

Just checked, and your right, it's 22 inches across. don't know where I got my number from.

My UM p-51 is pretty beat up, so I'm deciding between swapping all of it's parts to a T-28 frame, or for what works out to about $40 more, just buy a whole BNF.

Yes but EDF is scale but not efficient. I think a pusher jet is better and has longer flighttime.

Well, I said I wouldn't tell what the planes are, but didn't say anything about hints...
