good luck with this.......i love my trojan, but i think the landing gear is weak. i too fly mostly on grass, and it's hard on the model. after each flying session i usually have to remove the gear and bend them back to shape. during one landing that was not too bad, one of the mains caught a good bump......the plane cart-wheeled and the wing ended up popping off. fixed that with some epoxy (the wing attachment points got sheared off). mine does well of pavement, but it's not always easy finding a place with pavement where we can fly.

try making the take-off roll with full back-stick.......this is "soft field" technique for full size airplanes.....it's meant to get the airplane off the ground quickly. just be ready to shallow out the climb once it gets airborne. i use this technique for reasons mentioned above.......the trojan will get off the ground very quickly with this technique, if fact it will leap into the air, especially with a fresh batt.........rob
