Default Pica T-28

I just picked up one of these as a project for the winter. Its the 65 wingspan model. Anyone have or had this T-28? How does it fly? What engine did you use? Im leaning toward a four stroke engine but not sure of the size Ill need. Open for suggestions.

Mine flys like a champ using an OS 60 FP. Good Luck, Dave

I would use a ".90" size four stroker as a minimum.

A lot of gluing on this kit....so build it as light as you can....I personally feel the tail feathers are overbuilt requiring additional nose weight

The T-28 I bought had the wing built and the fuselage was partially completed. I plan on going over the built parts to see if I can lighten them up. I'm leaning toward the OS .95 FS for power. Just need to see if it fits.
Thanks for your responses>

I built this one back in 1989. Flew it on an O.S. .61 two-stroke. Flew it for years at around 8 pounds. Stable, forgiving and fun to fly. Flew it off a football field and with flaps down, I could bring it in over the top of the goal posts and touch it down on the 20 yard line. Always heard that you need to reinforce the horizontal stab as they were prone to fold, but never had a problem with mine. Recently stripped off the old monokote after all these years and glassed it. Converted to electric. Weighs in at almost 10 pounds with a Rimfire .60 on 6 cell/3600 motor battery. Still flies great! Good luck with yours.
Keep 'em Flying!
