Difference between Parkzone's different Ultra Micro planes?


Aside from aesthetics, can anyone explain the differences between Parkzone's ultra micro planes? For example:

F4U Corsair
T-28 Trojan
Sukhoi SU-26xp
P-51D Mustang
J-3 Cub

Thanks in advance!

Probably too many to list, but basically
J-3 cub - 3 channel, smaller motor and frame - mild
Champ is probably better choice for this
T28 - 4 channel, not quite so mild but not wild
P51 - 4 channel, even less mild, but not quite wild
Sukhoi xp - 4 channel, borderline wild unless you're
new - then it's wild.
Corsair - 4 channel, unknown at this point.

As far as the electronics go, only the T-28 and Mustang share electronics

The J-3 uses a AR6400 based PKZ3351 3 channel Brick and a 6mm motor (parkzones most powerful 6mm motor).

The T-28 and Mustang use an AR6400 6 channel Brick and an AS2000 Aileron servo and a 8.4mm motor (black belled... Parkzones most powerful 8.4mm motor)

The Sukhoi XP uses an AR6400L long throw servo 6 channel brick and a regular throw AS2000 Aileron servo and the same spec motor as Trojan and Mustang.

The Corsair will use an AR6400L long throw servo channel brick and two AS2000L long throw aileron servos and is spec'd to use the same black belled motor that goes into new XP's.

John Redmon said the Corsair is the best flying of all the new micros.
Seth Arnold designed the Corsair and he said it is one of the best flying new planes. I believe he said it can be set up to be "wild" or "mild", depending on what you want to do.
I have to agree with the bobly about the sukhoi, it is a handful if you are not used to it. I had to cut the throws way down and the first few flights were off the hook for me, I was all over the sky, not intentionally. I got it tamed down now, later I will change the throws some.
I think the J-3 Club doesn't fly very scale like, the Champ, is much better in that regard.
The Corsair will be here from what I was told, about the end of March or early April from what the Horizon people said at E-Fest.

I really like the looks of that Corsair, but apparently no one has much info on it yet ( wild vs mild vs somewhere in between )?

Seth Arnold says it is a sweet flier. You can set it up however you want.
Will be here in April, late March. I want one for sure. I got the large one, it is sweet, this will be even better. I saw it fly at E-Fest, flies like the Trojan, just a bit faster.

I was at my LHS yestday and the guy there wondered if it would be more difficult to fly due to the gull wing design.... Could be a good question...

I love HAM
I am having trouble choosing between these models as well, but lean heavy towards the corsair for it's nice scale looks and clear canopy!

My birthday is in April ... mhhhhh

Well, What did you get? I'm trying to make the same decision....


Two more to throw in there are the Mosquito and the not yet released Pole Cat.
Any ideas. I'm looking for a logical next step from my first plane the Hz Champ.

It depends what TX you have.

If you have the Champ TX, get a T-28. All of the others fly better with a real radio.

If you have a computer TX, you can get others besides the T-28, but the T-28 is by far the easiest to fly, and the Sukhoi is the hardest... and the others are somewhere in between.

Thanks for the advise. I do have the "Champ Tx" but will get something better before I buy my 3rd plane
Any of you fly the Mosquito? I was thinking that with the 20" wingspan it could be flown slower and be more controllable than the T-28.

No the T-28 flies better slowly than the Mossy, especially right out of the box.

If you get a computer TX, you can switch the brick to flaperons and deflect the ailerons up 30% for slow flight and the mossy is rock stable and much less likely to drop a wing if you fly too slow.

Ok I've got alot to learn. "switch the brick to flapperons"? Does this mean the with the comp. Tx I can turn the ailerons into flaps and basicly fly as a 3 channel with the addition of flaps?

And I think what your telling me also is as you said before T-28 with my current Tx, but the Comp Tx and Mosquito would be even easier to fly?

Sounding like I should get the T-28 then a better radio then the Mosquito hmmm or maybe the Pole Cat.
