Parkzone T-28 Trojan Parkflyer Unboxing, Review, and Sunset Maiden Flight
Parkzone T-28 Trojan Parkflyer Unboxing, Review, and Sunset Maiden Flight

Default Parkzone T-28 Trojan Parkflyer Unboxing, Review, and Sunset Maiden Flight

This Parkzone T-28 Trojan Parkflyer video review contains an unboxing, review, and sunset maiden flight to give the viewer and idea as to what to expect if they purchase this PNP (Plug-N-Play) RC model.

This RC Plane Park Flyer is brought to us by RC juggernaut Horizon Hobby. This is also considered by many to be the single best Parkflyer they have ever released under their Parkzone brand.

Making a special appearance in this video is a Parkzone Spitfire and another Parkzone T-28 Trojan without landing gear. Both were not expected but did add a little drama to spice up the video a bit. I also did a few rare stunts, tricks, and rolls on this maiden. John the cameraman did not expect this as you will note in his commentary.

My review notes for the T-28 Trojan are as follows:

Pros:
- Easy build
- Flies really well
- Looks great
- Flies as well or better than my Parkzone F4F Wildcat

Cons:
- Throttle plug was a little short (no others)

Takeaway: BUY THIS PLANE! This maiden was its actual maiden and was flown 100% stock with the exception of flying with a Gforce 2200mAh lipo battery.

Edit:

Here are some more recent flights with this bird to get a better idea as to how it flies:

A quick flight a few days after the maiden

Hey guys!

I made this new video the other night. It shows some clips of me enjoying the heck out of my Parkzone T-28 Trojan 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
