Default Airfield T-28 is now in stock!

9 versions!
Red/White Navy, Airforce and "the Huff" trainer that is a scale model of the one in Australia.

I ordered the Red/White one Rx ready.
I'm sure these will go fast.

Hey Dditch - you think these will run on 6S? Might pull the trigger on one if the stock electronics are good on 6 cell...

I don't think so for the RTF or RX ready versions.
They sometimes use a 2-5S ESC but doubt it will run 6S.
I'll let you know what the ESC is rated for.
You could get the KIT though and put in the ESC/motor combo you want to run off 6S.

Thanks, dditch - the ESC can take up to 50A (the 2-5S limitation is dictated by the rating of the built-in SBEC, Ican always pull the Red ESCRx wire and use my own switching UBEC that can take 6S+), should be well within that Amp range on a 13" 3-blade prop on 6S, though RPMs would be a bit too high on the stock prop. I think the best option is to go for the Rx-ready version simply because you get the ESC + motor + all the servos for only $70 additional, can always use the stock ESC for something else. I guess I'm most interested in the motor, I could prop that 500Kv motor up another inch or so in diameter so that pitch speed isn't out of control, but don't see any specs on the motor they are including (I have extra motors also) ;-).

Let me know when your kit arrives, I may order sooner than that though (unless you expect your kit by the weekend). If it does arrive sooner, it would be great if you could run some brief WOT tests on the stock motor with a 6SLiPo pack...
