78" Wingspan E-flite Carbon-Z T-28 - Bind-N-Fly (BNF) with AS3X Flight Stabilization - EFL1350

The Friendly Warbird

The E-flite Carbon-Z T-28 airplane is a big warbird model with all the benefits that make RC flight fun. Exclusive Carbon-Z construction allows a large airplane such as this to be rigid like a conventional all-wood airframe, yet lightweight so it can have friendly flying characteristics. Plus, the durability of the Z-Foam™ material means that any bumps along the way are simple to repair. Numerous scale details include a cockpit with instruments and pilot figure while the fitted cowl highlights a dummy radial engine. Of course, no warbird would be complete without functional flaps and operational retracts—both are factory installed.

Since the boom of practical electric power, foam has been an important construction material for RC aircraft. Stable and lightweight, revolutionary Z-Foam material came along to add a level of resiliency and reparability that made RC flight more fun, especially for pilots with very little free time. Exclusive Carbon-Z construction combines the durability of Z-Foam, the strength of lightweight plywood and carbon-fiber with a specially designed hollow-core airframe to take high performance flight beyond any other construction method. Today, Carbon-Z delivers “Big Foam” with a platform that’s as friendly as the iconic ParkZone T-28, yet maintains all of the above benefits for an experience that’s impressive at the field and in flight.

The advanced AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel AR636A receiver is what helps give the E-flite Carbon-Z T-28 an incredibly solid look and feel in the air. It works behind the scenes to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining 3-axis sensing with specially tuned flight control software. As a result, an impressive model like the T-28 is made even better because your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced.

When you go to choose a transmitter and receiver required for a quality airplane like this big E-flite Carbon-Z T-28 model, consider all the advantages genuine Spektrum™ technology gives you. Not only will you possess a proven radio system at a great price, you’ll get the safety benefits that only ModelMatch™ and SmartSafe™ features can give. In addition, the Bind-N-Fly technology built into every Spektrum receiver and transmitter entitles you instant access to an entire fleet of aircraft that can be ready to fly in the time it takes to charge a flight battery.

Features:

  • Carbon-Z Construction - Exclusive Carbon-Z technology features composite construction that allows the wing to be chambered, significantly reducing weight while increasing rigidity comparable to all-wood construction.
  • Electric retracts - The tricycle landing gear of the Carbon-Z T-28 feature nose wheel steering and the reliability of servoless retraction. Split-main gear doors and strut covers add to the scale appearance.
  • Operational flaps - The operational flaps feature movement much like the full-scale T-28 and independent servos for the most reliable system of control possible.
  • Scale detail - Under the clear canopy sits a pilot figure and additional cockpit detail. The cowling features a dummy radial engine and the scale-inspired paint scheme offers excellent in-flight visibility.
  • Powerful 60-size motor - The potent 60-size brushless power system drives a custom 2-blade propeller and is able to use a wide-range of 6S Li-Po battery packs from 3500–5000mAh (battery sold separately).
  • Easy assembly - The main-wing separates into two pieces for easy transport and features a fiberglass wing joiner. Each plug-in horizontal stabilizer half attaches to the tail section with a single screw.
  • High-quality metal gear servos - Seven servos throughout the airframe help deliver the primary control functions. The single micro-class servo for nosewheel steering saves weight while offering precise ground handling.
  • Large canopy hatch with latch closure
  • Two-piece, bolt-on wings and stabilizers
  • Vivid trim scheme with U.S. Navy inspired graphics
  • 2-blade propeller (included)

After 200 plus flights

Here is what the deal is after 300 plus flights.First I want to say this is a great flying plane great quality.I use an 8000mah lipo mounted all the way forward.Probably could go even 10.000.weight isnt an issue at all. Front retract doesnt like grass.It tends to bend after time but is very easy to just bend back.Ive had to replace one retract and two servos.Not bad for as many flights.Ive literally tried to tear the wings off but couldnt.I abused and used this plane and the darn thing is still flying great.Little faded on cowl but sun tends to do that as much as its been out.Built very tough.I did manage to tear the aileron and flap off but only after belly slamming the run way while having way to much fun.I mean hard.With them hanging on flapping in the wind still managed to keep it flying and landed just fine.Just bought the servos to replace because it was worthy of spending more money on it..Seriously dont let the size scare you it is the easiest plane you will ever fly.I fly giant scale T28 composite with achmed as my pilot and many other giant scale warbirds.This is a great plane hands down.Just thought Ide let people know if they were worried bout it.Just buy the darn plane and have a great time.FLY IT LIKE YA STOLE IT

Beautiful plane!

What I found, all T-28s flying nice,from ultra micro up to this one. Plenty of power for vertical maneuvers and high speed low passes. Only one think, for that amount of money, E-Flite could at least equip this plane with nav.lights.

Carbon Z T28

Hands down amazing right out of the box so easy to put together. Assembled at the airfeild in less than an hour binded and flew it without having to make any adjustments or trim. Flew amazing even in 15mph winds with some guts to 20. Side slips and crabs well on crosswind landings. Attempted to tip stall but wouldnt do it just nosed over stayed level.

OMG What a Nice Plane

I must admit I bought this plane recently from a competitor and had my first flights today. What a joy to fly. It was an easy build although I did take the advice of several people on the review section like changing out the clevises and rods to the Flaps and Ailerons. I also applied baby powder as a lubricant to those tight joints of the horizontal stab and wings as well as a few other things. This plane sounds awesome when it makes a fast past in the clean configuration. The only thing I would change is perhaps a 3 or 4 blade prop. I think I will be flying this one a lot.

Beautiful T-28

Well there's not to much to say about this model besides WOW! This is the nicest plane I've ever flown. From gentle slow flight to full throttle it's locked in and does great even in a 10-15mph wind. The build is also very straight forward and the plane goes together in about a half hour. If your thinking about this T-28 pull the trigger you will not be disappointed at all. MotionRC is always great to deal with also and has extremely fast shipping!

Big Plane Goodness

Flys wonderful and looks great in the air. A few minor issues with construction, like cowling a little off center and flap servos don't actuate the same, but overall a nice model. I was able to make everything work. Had a bad Y harness on the gear channel and Motion RC sent a new one real quick. They' a great company. Highly recommend the T-28 and Motion RC.

Fanfreakintastic Plane!

I've always heard these CZ T-28s flew good but I can honestly say this is the best flying plane I own (out of over 70 planes), the assembly was fast and easy. I use the new Admiral 6S 5000mAh batteries and get 10 minutes of scale flying...I love this plane!

E-Flite Big Foam T-28

Got this plane after drooling over posted pictures for a couple weeks. Had it now for awhile. Got 102 flights on it now with just minor problems. Had retract issues within the first month of flying it. Motion RC handled the issues like pros. I started flying it on a 6S 5000 mAh battery for about a 7 minute flight. I now fly it on a 6S 8000 mAh battery and get about 12 minutes in the air and this bird handles the added weight with no problems. It has absolutely no bad tendencies. I highly recommend this airplane.
