Nose is much heavier now with the beefier motor and the glue and all the CF in the nose. So battery location and overall CG will be checked many times and blessed by a third party so I don't fly tail heavy again. Tail heavy sucks.
Wow must be a weak spot my friend broke his PZ T the same place.
Another weak spot is the front landing gear. Grass strips are hard on them.
So iare 1 point landings
I hope my T fares out better..

Maidened


Well, I maidened my T-28 Trojan today, maybe I should call it soloed. As I am a new flyer it was recommended I have someone with more experience trim my trojan. That was done for me on the weekend. It was a good suggestion because it had some roll.

Today I took it out to a section of frozen river and tried to take off from the snow crust, but there was no way, the wheels just dug in. I ended up shoveling a strip of smooth ice and took off from there. What a rush when the T28 got off the ground and it is going where I am telling the sticks to send it.

After a few circles with a big smile on my face I tried to line up with the small cleared strip. About 5' wide and 30 or 40' long. I knew this was going to be tricky, and it was. As I'm sure you can imagine I didn't make it, but ended up floating down on the snow where the front wheel dug in and it did a nose dive, but no damage.

I took it up and down a few more times, not without incident. The cowling is cracked, but I suspect it was pretty brittle because of the cold (about 30-32F). And a dent on the leading edge of the wing where it hit a tree branch.

But all in all, what a blast and a T-28 with no real damage when I was done. I think I'll make some skis for it and try again. I will be nice to be able to land anywhere there is smooth snow.

Thanks everyone for your advise and information contained in this thread.

Happy flying.....

I'm still grinning.

Does anyone have plans or pictures of skis that work well the the Trojan?

I hope to have time on the weekend to make something, most likely with wood although I do have some aluminum that might work.

I guess part of the issue is to ensure they don't flip fully up or down to cause more of a drag, particularly on one side only.

Grab some Minwax Polycrylic Protective Finish aerosol spray,
to coat the fuselage and wings with a hard coating and give your plane strength and rigidity.
Water-based, fast-drying, low-odour and easy to use.
Adds a slight yellow tinge to white but other colours seem fine.
Aweome stuff! Definatley worth trying. Durable foamies? Yes.

Available at Wallmart, Homedepot, Lowes, Orchard Supply, Sears.

Laser,

how good is the strengthening of your Jug with the Protective finish?
What are we talking here? Will stop minor dings and scratches or a full blown protective coat that stops anything?

Just bought a PZ Jug so might be worth a try..

Regards,
Nath.
