There may be other T-28's on the market but none are as good as the Durafly t-28. The Durafly T-28 has the smoothest finish along with all the bells and whistles.
Keeping all the great features from the original Durafly T-28 Trojan, like pre-installed navigation lights, servo-less electric retracts with gear doors, flaps and all servos. The new features include a fully functional dive brake and a cockpit designed specifically for FPV flight. You will need to add your own Pan and tilt camera with a head tracker, VTX and antennas. FPV is a great way to get that full flying experience being fully immersed in the T-28's cockpit. The V2 T-28 has an increased internal bay to house all your electronics and battery. Under the scale cowl, we have added an AeroStar 3536-750kv brushless out-runner motor coupled with an AeroStar 40A ESC driving a scale 3-bladed propeller on 4S will provide you with all the power you need for loops and rolls and awesome performance.
The Durafly T-28 Trojan 1100mm V2 is designed to screw together in just 6 easy steps, getting you in the air faster and glue free. All electrics are pre-installed and all you need to add is your choice of transmitter and receiver, battery and of course your choice of FPV equipment.
The T28 is a rock solid performing warbird and an extremely stable flying platform. The servo-less electronic tricycle undercarriage makes ground handling, take off's and landings a breeze. The T-28 is an extremely popular warbird and RC flying model, Now with this exciting new USMC authentic scheme and new features to match The US Marines want you and the new V2 T-28 will make your flying mates go all "Oorah" with envy.

This is a nicely made and presented model.
I did have issues with the spats on the main uc legs with our grass strip so I have removed them.
I used the 4S2200 lipo but the plane is a bit heavy I think and have ordered some 3S2200 bolts to power this one and I think it will be a lot better with a lighter wing loading.
Looks great in the air but I think there is a typo in reference to battery required.
I’ll post another review after flyin* with the lighter battery pack.Most of the plane is fantastic. But mine had one bad retract. I requested another, but HK customer service is not good, and instead sent a replacement and then wanted me to pay shipping on the broken plane. So instead of sending me a $7 part, they sent me a whole plane, then want me to pay $40 to ship the bad one back. Typical Hobbyking Really bad customer service. If something is broken, just fix it yourself. Don't even bother with them. Oh and their customer service agents will close your tickets so they can't get a bad rating, since you can't rate a closed ticket, so good luck.Whilst this plane goes together quickly, I found some parts needed attention: Speed controller gets hot powering all the servos and lights; Rudder needs proper hinges; All hinges need additional reinforcement as they do eventually separate (I use small strips of reinforcement tape); The prop to ground clearance may be an issue for grass strips.
This plane is not quite up to the standard of the P40 and the Spitfires of the same make.Very nice plane, just a pitty I crashed it and damged the nose a little bit.Very nice plane, look at this video https://youtu.be/NHgIJqxAaOsAlso just received mine from the UK site and also no instructions, I just need to find them online nowAlso just received mine from the UK site and also no instructions, I just need to find them online nowSo after sorting out the issues with the main retract gear not functioning - the multi connector in the wing was u/s so I put in my own Y Lead, the gear then functioned perfectly - it was off to the field for a flight. I have to say that I was impressed. With a 4 cell LiPo the T-28 flies with aplomb and exhibits the characteristic of a much larger model. Landings are easy with the flaps and air brake deployed and the ground handling excellent. The power train is excellent on 4s ( giving 6 mins plus flight times with mixed flying manoeuvres) and wipes the floor with my (more expensive) E-Flite P47 which struggles to give me 5 minutes flying time. Overall I am very impressed with this model and would have given it a full house 5 star if I hadn't had to sort out the electrical problem with the main u/c - just a little bit of poor quality control. I would most certainly recommend this model to anyone looking for a scale tricycle undercarriage aircraft.I got my t-28 last week. No damage in packaging. Went together really easy. Flaps, dive brake, lights and retracts all work great. I put the first 3 flights on it today and it flew great. C.G. at 55mm was right on. Flew great with zippy 2200mah 4s packs. Has high roll rate. Half flaps slow it to a near stop. Gonna try a 2 blade prop for a little more speed but no complaints here. Was a little breezy but still flew great. Gonna fly with fpv next week. I recommend this plane if you like the t-28. It's small but fun.Arrived this week from UK store.
No instructions included so had to down load them from the 'files'. No problem here.
Went together quite well.
However the main u/c does not work at all. The nose u/c will work on its own when connected to the gear channel but the main gear is stubbornly stuck up and will not sequence!! When the nose gear is connected to the main via the included Y lead this then does not work. I suspect that the sequencer unit is u/s. I have logged a email with the help centre so await a reply. I will try and return the model and ask for a new one. I guess yet again this is poor HK quality control.
Further review to follow if and when I get my problem resolved.
