NEW MOVES FROM AN OLD FAVORITE
Introduced as a ParkZone® model more than a decade ago, the T-28 Trojan 1.1m quickly became a favorite of low-time to experienced pilots alike! It had the scale looks of the North American Aviation T-28 Trojan used as a trainer by the Navy from 1952 to 1984, yet flew better than most sport RC models because of its incredible handling with no bad habits. The model's simplicity, durability, and easy handling made it especially popular with low-time pilots moving up to their first sport, low wing or warbird model after mastering a trainer. Plus, the convenient size allowed it to be flown at large parks and sports fields and transported easily without disassembly. Now the T-28 has been updated and upgraded to be more powerful, more capable, and more fun to fly than ever before! Stronger and reinforced parts combine with the more powerful 3S and 4S compatible power system featuring a telemetry-capable ESC to deliver higher speeds and higher energy aerobatic performance — while offering the same slow and scale-like, sport flying and easy handling capabilities the original was always known for.
A T-28 AT THE TOP OF ITS CLASS
Updated and upgraded, including a fully-painted, high-visibility trim scheme, the E-flite® T-28 Trojan 1.1m reaffirms its status as an excellent "next step" model for low-time pilots who have mastered a trainer and are looking for their first low-wing, sport or warbird model — while expanding its performance for experienced pilots with higher speed and higher energy aerobatic capabilities! With a common 3S 1800–2200mAh LiPo battery, the brushless power system featuring a specially-tuned motor delivers plenty of thrust and speed for low-time to intermediate pilots. Or, install a 4S battery for more speed and unlimited vertical performance without modifications or upgrades! Four servos and linkages are factory-installed for full aerobatic capability to perform loops, rolls, knife-edge, inverted flying, and more. The composite-reinforced EPO airframe includes stronger parts to handle the higher speeds and additional aerobatic capabilities, and for improved durability overall. Final assembly is fast and easy, no glue required, and the T-28 fits into almost any vehicle fully assembled — or the wing can be removed for even easier transport and storage. Any traditional RC flying field with paved, dirt or grass surfaces makes a suitable flying site, although skilled pilots can fly in smaller areas such as large parks or sports fields. The T-28 is inherently stable like the full-scale trainer platform, but the BNF® Basic version, featuring a Spektrum™ AR631 receiver, gives low-time and intermediate pilots the added benefits of exclusive AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select stabilization technologies. Best of all the ESC included with both versions is telemetry-capable to deliver real-time battery voltage, current, motor RPM, and other data via compatible receivers (including the AR631 included with the BNF Basic version) and Spektrum™ AirWare™ equipped transmitters. And it all adds up to offer improved scale-like and sport flying, higher speed and higher energy aerobatic capabilities to deliver a sport scale flying experience you simply can't get anywhere else!
The lightweight yet durable composite-reinforced EPO airframe has been updated to handle more power, higher speeds and higher energy aerobatics. A stronger motor mount and nose gear steering arm, plus a new spar to better reinforce the wing, combine to make the T-28 Trojan 1.1m more capable than ever before.
The factory-installed brushless power system features a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC plus a specially-tuned motor to deliver an abundance of thrust with a 3S LiPo battery, or more speed and unlimited vertical performance with a 4S battery without the need for any modifications or upgrades.
The T-28 Trojan 1.1m is equipped with an ESC that can provide a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more via compatible receivers (including the AR631 installed in the BNF® Basic version) and Spektrum™ AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, the NX6, 8 and 10, the iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.
No glue is required for final assembly, and you can have the T-28 Trojan 1.1m ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery! And although it's conveniently sized to fit fully assembled in just about any vehicle, you can also remove the wing for even easier storage and transport.
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!
This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a heightened sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.
If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.
With SAFE Select enabled, you get:
Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
Easy Switch Assignment—No Complex Programming Required
If you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.
The Trojan was my second plane after learning how to fly. I love the simplicity of it. No worry about the gear. Colors great so you can see it in the sky easier. Plus hobbyzone is a great place to buy from. Dan and the guys are fantastic.
Nice plane. Seemed very well made. Was easy to assemble. Most difficult task during assembly was the nose gear. Make sure you insert the top of the nose gear strut so it just touches the upper portion of the firewall. Be cautious with paint finish. Finish was easily removed by tape. You need to use the batteries specified to fit mounting. After mechanical trimming for first flight, additional trimming of elevator to give it more down was necessary. Aircraft flys well . It flys well slow. Like having the telemetry.
The Eflite T-28, after 10+flights is super fun and an easy plane to manage. Hard to improve upon the original Parkzone T-28. Truly deserves the 5-star rating. Happy that they kept the same general features/construction. Good to have the ability to run a 4 cell (goes like a bat...) in addition to the 3 cell. Looking forward to many more flights! The added plus is dealing with Dan and his staff at Hobbyzone. They are the best!!
It took me a few flights to figure out how to balance this airplane, I started flying tailheavy and was not able to trim it , so after watching some videos I did a manual adjustment on the Elevator giving it a good bit of down ,Flys on rails now very fast on 4s and very fun, I would have given it 5 stars but I had some shipping damage on the wing and the rear elevator tore apart and had to retape it, I suggest mabey nylon hinges as it's pretty weak back there, overall I love it flys great!
If you owned an original Parkzone T-28 . You will want this one too. The upgrades make this “Icon” even better. It is a perfect low wing trainer with Warbird style. The SAFE select and AS3X keeps the drama low . It’s perfect for touch and go practice and more than capable aerobatic maneuvers , even on a 3 cell pack. If you prefer 4 cells you ain’t hurting anything.
I ABSOLUTLY love flying this aircraft!!
It is a great Intermediate aircraft for intermediate pilots like me!
Such a fun plane that cuts through the air. It’s constantly windy here in NM and the plane handles the 10-20mph wind pretty well.
I’m a new pilot this year and this is my second plane. I enjoy flying the T28 even more than my Aeroscout trainer. It’s so smooth and I was able to land it the first time out. The yellow color makes it easy to see. I could see it being used as your first plane as it is that easy to fly!
Small size. Very good performance even in windy conditions. I installed larger wheels as I often fly off grass. Usually fly with 4s2000-50 C battery. Modified battery bay. My new "go to" plane.
