ParkZone's T-28 Trojan for sale has a wingspan of 44 in. and it is 36 in. long.  The ARF is powered by an included brushless motor.

Pilots report that the 1,425 h.p engine provides robust acceleration.  During take off, engine torque pushes the aircraft nose to the left and must be countered with pressure on the right pedal to keep the aircraft tracking straight. At just before 70 mph, a little back pressure on the controls will get it in the air.

Joe McGowan from Riverside, CA writes:
"I would like to tell you about my experience with the T-28 Trojan for sale from Graupner. It is a high quality ARF made of all wood that has some of the best construction I've ever seen. Although the kit comes with a fuel tank, I decided to use an AXI 990 Kv motor for power.

The airplane went together quickly and looks terrific. The motor has more than enough power and you have to throttle back if you want the model to fly at scale looking speeds.

I was surprised at how well the T-28 Trojan carries its speed through maneuvers. Although it looks a bit bulky, it is pretty slippery. It will do huge, perfectly round loops, with power to spare. It doesn't seem to mind cross winds and just goes where pointed. A slow pass over the runway really looks great.

My favorite maneuvers with the T-28 Trojan are touch and goes. It does really well with just a touch of power carried until it sets down. Then it will get back into the air with just a slight roll before the throttle is fully advanced. When you are ready for a full stop landing, it will roll out straight and true, with no tendency to nose over.

While the real aircraft was used as a trainer, I recommended the T-28 Trojan for sale from Graupner for pilots who have some flying experience."

Thank you very much for telling us about your T-28 Trojan for sale from Graupner, Joe, and happy flying!
