I kinda' pimped out my T28 a little too...painted some silver on the face of the cowl, painted a tad of silver in the exhaust area, added a 2nd pilot, a 'student' ... and tried out a new prop, 10x7 MAS... and I painted them tips ruby red heheh

Is it wise to put a 3 prop on a stock T-28??

thanks, this iPhone can take a decent pic every once in awhile...

well, I guess it all comes down to preference, but... between the T28 & Corsair which fly grrrreat, the T-Bolt is pretty dang awesome. I think it's almost (maybe is) as stable and easy to fly as the T28, but maybe that's "the newness talking"

I have the E-flite e-tracts and flaps on her and that makes it a real blaaast.... no disappoints with the P47

T-Bolt looks like a great plane not heard a bad word about it. love the Retracts and Flap options that can be added form stock with no modding. will it beat the T-28 from the No1 spot though !

I just love the P-47 for its sheer awesomeness in war history


I would definitely mod it to have unlimited vertical and want to climb like the real thing and leave the rest in its wake.

Plus lights, retracts, flaps.

oh yeah

creaming my pants lol

Unlimited vert is no problem with the p-47, put a 12x6 apc on and run a 4s and you have it. Thats running stock esc and motor.

This isn't my first practice run with the t-28 though. Have a few more tricks up my sleeve.

Power 25. I want to do some shaving on the plane to thin it out abit and change the wing loading also. This won't be an over night project but going to start on it next weekend.

Australian PZ T 28s


G'day guys,
I did my first flight with my T 28 in September, the weekend of my 44th birthday. My older brother had been trying to get me to fly since we were teenagers. He convinced me to get the G5 sim, which I flew heaps before I actually flew. My brother watched me do the take off, then talked me through some circuits and approaches, then off one approach he said , "OK, land it", and I greased her on. It was the greatest feeling. He flew my T 28 heaps, until I bought him one as well. He has about 30 model planes, and I now have about 16. The favourite is definately the T 28. We have flown our models together and ALWAYS have a great time flying together. The pic was taken at my local park after we had flown our T 28s together. Life is good. Thanks Park Zone.

Just ordered my t-28 and it is on the way. Was just wondering if anyone has used the telemetry system that comes with the dx8? I am hoping it will all fit in there and not have to wonder when the battery is getting low. If anyone has any ideas on this some input would be greatly appreciated. I also purchased 2, 2500 30 C eflite batteries. I am hoping they fit in there also.

I have been flying helis as an amateur for about 2 years now. Mainly the blade mSR and SR. Have a trex 450 and can hover it and fly around some. Nothing special but i love flying them.

Anyways just picked up the UM t-28 and i love it and instantly had to have the PNP of it. Have a feeling that i might enjoy fixed wing flying a lot!

So if anyone has any info if i will be able to use the telemetry with my dx8 that would be great.
