Product Updates:

  • August 22, 2017  -  This new V4 uses a water-based paint that may have a tendency to flake from the foam compared to oil-based paint.  We recommend using Beacon Hobby Coat to protect the paint and keep it from flaking.  You can purchase Beacon Hobby Coat here.
  • June 5, 2017  -  Changes from V3 to V4 include:
  • Shock absorbing metal oleo struts covered with scale plastic parts for looks
  • Glueless wing "Servo Pockets" (servos in the wing are screwed in as opposed to glued for easier replacement)
  • Upgraded (larger) 4258-650KV motor with Japanese ball bearings and magnets
  • Pre-installed ball links on push rods as opposed to the old clevis-control horn setup
  • New FMS multi-connector system for cleaner wiring and easy wing removal
  • FMS removed the functional cowl flaps. While technically a downgrade, there are two less servos to worry about
  • New Motor shaft New detailed cockpit with 1 pilot figure

Dive to destruction

I lost it today. Previously had 6 uneventful flights and expected the same today. But right after takeoff and turning downwind she nosed over and "spun" into the ground. I had enough altitude to try control inputs but there was no response - just a perfectly vertical rolling dive into the ground. Regarding landing gear problems others have reported, the only thing I noticed is that the nose gear "chatters" when going up or down. But the gear always operated in the 6 flights plus one takeoff. I also found that the balance with a 2200 mah battery required the battery be moved aft to where only the rear most velcro strap was on the battery. I put velcro on the battery and tray though and that seemed to make it secure enough. Unsure what to do next. Try again - or retire. Very disappointing.

Pretty but problematic

I really wanted to love this plane. Every T-28 I've flow (even older versions of this) were awesome. As noted this plane has a serious flaw in the nose retract. The trunion and jack screw slider just can't line up. The slider doesn't have a flat surface. Result is any slight touch on the nose and it folds. I finally swapped out a FreeWing retract to fix it after hours of fiddling with the internals. Also to get balance with any battery I had to move the connection plate back so I could move the battery aft.

Numerous problems

I have had numerous problems since I purchased this plane. Initially, I experienced an ESC fire which killed all installed servos. Motion RC was great in their customer support, and provided all new servos, ESC and Nose Gear. The biggest problem is replacing the nose gear with no way of extending the gear. The rigging of the doors does not provide any way of manually lowering the gear, and the plastic parts break. There is also a tiny spring which holds the doors fully open, and it is nearly impossible to install. It took me over three hrs to get it in. The servos are different sizes, and even have different size screws to hold the servo arms. When I finally got it flying, it flys great, but after three flights, normal soft landings, the nose gear failed in the up position, so I get to have that fun all over again. The support from Motion RC has been fantastic !!!

T-28 1400mm

The operating manual is basically useless. Can't even explain the correct location of the CG. I had to epoxy glue the horizontal stab on. The provided screws would not fit properly. I had problems with both main landing gear from flight one. Failure to extend and retracting while taxing back after landing. Motion R/C was good enough to replace one of the main gear. The plane is a good flyer.

Best plane in my flight

I just took this plane out again yesterday...after I updated mine to a V4. I was amazed at how well it flew! With the new motor, this ol' girl is just as fast as my A-10! After a very minor trim adjustment on the first pack, it flew rock solid and so smooth I was in awe. I use a Spektrum AS3X receiver, programed with a moderate amount of gain. But even with the gyro off, this plane is smooth as silk. It settles in beautifully for nice landings. I use full flaps, and carry a little power on final, just before touch down, a slight (very slight, or it will ballon on you) flare and drop the power - the plane greases in just like I know what I am doing. Although I love my Freewing A-10 and P-51, this plane is probably my favorite. My only complaint is the gear door setup is a little bit finicky. I took off the outer hatch covers, so there is never a jam.
