Default Park Zone T-28

Ok its in "Navy" colors (which will be changing soon to Air Force Grey) .... but was wondering if anyone knew a part number for the "X-box" jumper wire that goes from the receiver to a hard point mount under the wing (like the one in the Hobby Zone Super Cub) so that I could mount the "Drop Module" under the wing ....

umm.. if you are talking about the t-28 trojan, i dont think you can put the x-port on it... you may have done something but i'm looking on a site and it says it has no x-port plug... so sorry if i'm right...

yes the X-port plug is on the receiver block ... suprised me too ... so since I had the drop module for my Super Cub I was thinking I could mount it under the T-28 with some modifications ...

did you plug your drop module in and see if it is working, before you buy the extension cable?

very nice. here is mine that is in progress -- not nearly as clean of a paint job as yours. I built it from parts, as I can't bear to be with out my original plane - my almost "daily flyer".

We still need to touch up paint, insignia and seal it with Polycrylic. Then toss all the power and electrics in.

I am still looking for a more to scale pilot figure for my Trojan .... the one that came with it is not true . . . I flew back seat in a couple while in the AF and this is a very "large" aircraft ...

this is my next one to build out - probably a fiberglass big boy -- this is a shot of the 1948 air force version test plane- you can see how big this plane really was with pilots. I am working on the cowl markings - trying to figure out what exactly it says.

My dad has some great stories about these planes.

my best (memory) is "standing" on the left rudder to keep it on the runway ... it had a habit of "pulling" to the right . . .

So I always wondered, especially looking at Waytooslows picture, what's up the the cavernous canopy on the T-28?! That thing is huge! You could fly an rc plane inside of there! Maybe it was just for aerodynamics?
