This video shows some clips of me enjoying the heck out of my Parkzone T-28 Trojan Parkflyer taking off and landing on a dirt road in berry fields. I tried to do a lot of scale flight as well since this thing is so pretty in the air along with some basic stunts and tricks.


This was all captured with my new Sony Handycam, so there are some nice up-close shots of this plane in the air too

Just an amazing Saturday late morning in Central Florida! Kind of on the Chilly side for us warm blooded swap dwellers! However, we all came prepared with our Winter Clothes (Shorts, T-Shirts!)

Here is my buddy's, Gerry (simano) pictures showing my Continuous Knife Edge flight with my Park Zone T-28D "Airforce" Trojan all around the field.

Camera: Pentax K-X DSLR
Lens: Promaster 70-300mm, f4-5.6/w Tele-Macro Zoom.

Okay, a super nice gentleman located one for my beloved T-28D "Airforce" Trojan!

My Trojan's Firewall finally got to a point of no return so, needed a newer one!

Received the Stock Plastic Firewall on Thursday, September 15th, 2016 and in perfect conditions.

I wasted no time and cleaned off / took off the rubbery glue and it looks ready for installation!

Thanks again!

For those wondering, no one sells the PZ T-28 or T-28D Trojan Plastic Firewall !

You would have to purchase the entire FUSE!

I finally had time last night and early this morning to finish my Repair Project with my Beloved Park Zone T-28D "Airforce" Trojan.

A few more cleaning tasks on the newer Plastic Firewall to remove the rubberized glue and a little sanding to remove the RED paint along the outside rim and presto!

Used 5-minute epoxy and set it over-night with a large Lead Acid Battery to provide pressure and it cured very well. Looks like new! (Well, Almost!)

A few pictures!

The best NEWS ..... are you ready?

Ready?

Horizon Hobby about one week ago told me that they were going to look into a intact Stock Plastic Firewall from a donor air-frame and just yesterday, I received a notification that they shipped me a Brand New FUSE!

I hope it is the T-28D "Airforce" but, if it's the NAVY, I will make another NAVY and will have two versions!

The FUSE should be coming at my front door on Saturday!

Guys,

Once again Horizon Hobby does it again!

On Saturday, September 24th, I received one fully outfitted Park Zone "Navy" T-28 Trojan Fuse!

It all started when I realized that my 7 year old Park Zone T-28D "Airforce" was just not repairable anymore and I searched and even called Horizon Hobby Technical Support asking them about any donor "USED" FUSE that might be there and if so, could I have the Firewall as anything has to be better than what I have! I even opened a "Looking" thread over at the Electric Airplanes asking ......

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2738868

Well, to my surprise, Horizon Hobby sent me an NEW FUSE without any questions and it was outfitted with Servos and the Spektrum AR-600 Full Range Receiver!

Push rods were all in place and ready for action.......well almost!opcorn:

Okay guys,

Where can I get a new "Navy" version Wing and Tail Feathers to match up with the new FUSE that I received from Horizon Hobby?

Can some please post some links to distributors with stock and best prices?

Thanks in advanced!

Guys,

Saturday October 1st, 2016, I was able to jimmy rig my point and shoot camera ontop of my Cowboy Hat

Sharing a neat video of the action that takes place at my RC Club.

Make sure you select High Resolution and Full Screen:

Guys,

Not in any way announcing any new product and instead sharing a very early prototype that is in the works by a nice GERMAN friend, Peter.
