Not seasonal here in Utah. We flew this past Saturday with temps in the 20's and it was snowing when we started.

How do you keep your TX safe?

I do my best to teach it to not hang with the wrong crowd and always buckle up....Oh wait, I am the wrong crowd. It wasnt snowing heavily when we started just light snow. Some of our guys have transmitter mits. I dont have any yet. My wife and her buddy sew, and I have asked them to make me one, because I am too cheap to buy one. But it has been a month since I have asked, I guess I will have to buy one. I have to find the right one though since I hand launch some of my planes and I am right handed, which means the elevator/aileron stick will be unattended if I cant get it in the mit quick enough.

I'd recommend getting a new shaft or a new motor.

Can the wings on this be glued up easily like the SC ?? or are they to thin??
Are the wheels decent sized or should they be changed for bigger ones (which size if yes)??
Thanks

Yes the wings can be repaired very easily. Wheels work fine but I have seen people put bigger ones on also. Does help with longer grass. Like 1 3/4" or so

I've put these on as the grass is a little long where I fly even after it's been mowed :http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/s...idProduct=9855

I actually took off with the undercarriage for the first time the other day instead of hand launching it. Went pretty well taking off and touch and goes until the fateful last landing (if that's what ya want to call it). It was rather windy but it landed on the nose gear and broke the firewall a bit. I pulled all the undercarriage off and kept flying. Shouldn't be a problem to fix though. I'm so jealous of you guys that have big concrete/bitumen areas or nice grassed areas to takeoff and land at. Landing on the wheels just adds another dimension (and element of danger if ya saw my landings) to flying. My belly landings are quite smooth so I obviously need more practice

Video of my Trojan in Toronto at the weekend. Cold and windy but sunny for a while

Parkzone T-28 at Downsview (8 min 44 sec)


It was too windy to use the flaps, too bad as the keyfob camera was perfectly placed on the horizontal stab.

Cheers !!

Something else you folks should think of when winter flying. Condensation.
You know when you walk outside and your glasses fog up.

Guess what else does the same? The components you fly with. And it works both ways.
You take a nice warm bird and tx outside to bitter cold conditions and they will fog up inside also. When you are done and take the chilled equipment back inside it's just like cold soda sitting in a hot room, condensation forms. Electronics don't like water.

To help allieviate the problem you might want to think about keeping your stuff in maybe an unheated garage, so it's not being abused by the drastic temp changes and what it does to them.

I think most of what you see as wing flex is actually the fuse rocking side to side. Mine rocked side to side so bad I choose to glue mine on. Since then I've noticed some serious wing flex, performing high performance maneuvers. Gonna pull the tape off this winter and make sure the spar is firmly glued in place.

wing flex


I am new to RC but as an experienced pilot can tell you this. A wing that does not flex tends to break off. If you happen to fly in an airliner sometime check out what happens to the wing tip during turbulence. I would assume this to be true no matter what size the airframe. RC or not

Cool video! Looks like you almost lost the canopy (pops up at about 4:46).

Flew mine for the first time last Saturday, and it met/exceeded my expectations. Stock power system flies so nice! 2200 25C packs no doubt help! Ground handling is awesome, not a hint of tip-stalling on super-slow approaches, and very controllable when flaring. Best ARF I've ever had.
