Overview

The T-28 Trojan was a piston-powered U.S. military trainer used in the 1950’s through the early 1970’s. The original Trojan had a frameless canopy and an impressive engine that gave it a top speed exceeding 280 mph. Now you can pilot a ready-to-fly, electric scale replica of this historical warbird. Equipped with an outrunner brushless motor and 3-cell 1800mAh Li-Po battery, ParkZone’s T-28 Trojan is a powerful, high performance aircraft. The Trojan is perfect for the experienced pilot who would rather spend his time flying a mighty scale replica airplane than building one.

The T-28 Trojan is also available in a Plug-N-Play version. The convenience of a Ready-To-Fly and the versatility of an Almost-Ready-to-Fly—just plug in your receiver and fly! You can fly the T-28 Trojan using any major brand of receiver and transmitter. Simply attach a propeller and plug in a receiver of four channels or more, and it’s ready for action.

Charge-and-Fly convenience, outstanding flight performance and beautiful scale detail with the T-28 Trojan you get it all.

The T-28 is an awesome aircraft. I Have a book that shows the different models and there arangement. The South Vietnam Air Force used them as COIN Fighters, ground support, and such as that. That Parkzone T-28 would look great with a new camo paint job and some 2.5" rockets hung from the wings, and some Willie Pete canisters.

Well, My mind is now made up. that is going to be my 2nd aircraft. Been flying the Super cub for a while but was looking for a warbird. Was going to purchase another Parkzone plane and couldnt decide between the P51 Mustang,Spitfire or FW 190Tthen i saw the T28 Trojan. With landing gear, steerable nose wheel and brushless motor. I think i am making the right choice. Parkzone are obviously taking on board the ideas of the people who fly these planes for a hobby, hence the motor and landing gear.

Anyway happy Landings.

I Just maidened my spitfire and love it. I love Parkzone/hobbyzone. I began with a firebird then went to a glow trainer and a now fly glow and electric. I had a f-27 for a year untill the batterie blew up and that was my favriote plane for awhile. I am going to get this plane when it comes out and when I get the money. Parkzone is a good RTF company

You mite have to download a newer Q time player but, the vid does take it's time to play. This aircraft seems vary steady at low speed when it lands in the vid. The BL motor is not a over kill but, the power looks to be there when it goes vertical.

What does the PNP not come with?
A transmitter, a receiver and a prop? Is that it?
Why, on both descriptions, does it say RECOMMENDED battery?
Do either come with the battery?
You would think that the RTF would, anyway.

Things are still in the works so, there may be changes in the item Specs later. All the item specs are from the PZ, HZ and HH websites so, give them a call and maybe they will clarify the misprint.

RTF includes 1800mah Lipo battery and charger.

PNP needs transmitter, receiver, battery, and charger.

There is no ARF, unless you are buying individual parts and putting one together. They are just available in PNP and RTF.

Actually, there probably will be what is effectively an ARF. A lot of the Parkzone warbirds have a replacement airframe available that is effectively an ARF.

Xeno,
Thanks. That makes perfect sense.

And your ARF point has merit, technically.
