Oh to have a proper runway - you guys are spoiled in the US!
I've got to put up with landing tiny wheels on bumpy ground...

na, that's prado... We don't really fly there... they're really expensive dues... (like $150 initiation + 150 Per year)

ocassionally we fly there as guests when we want to see what those guys have..., its $10 to fly per day if you aren't a member... sometimes we pay... other times... well.... they don't notice...lol

Hey when we use wheels we land on country roads. No expensive dues, just keep it between the ditches.

Awesome. It is great to see what a pro flyer can do with one of the hobby's favorite planes.

Not everyone in the US has a "proper runway" . We mow the weeds down in the summer and pack the snow with a drag in the winter. Our runway is best in the winter because the snow fills all the holes caused by the moose prints. The area floods twice a year during extreme high tides. We flew today, the strip was very smooth but it was between +1 and +10 F all day. It was our first annual Chilly Fun Fly with lots of homemade Chili and corn bread.

The first thing I do with every plane is purchase some Dan Brown 4" wheels.

Fly hard and land soft!

I got to maiden my new T-28 this morning. What a nice flying plane!! I got mine used for 50 BUCKS!! It came with a 30 AMP E-Flight ESC. Is this the stock ESC? I was a little worried about the ESC being able to run all 4 servos with out a bigger BEC. I currently am running the factory prop 9.5 X 7.5 which gave me a 16 minute flight and I didn't even hit the LVC. I think I'll try the 10 inch DD prop next.

Stock ESC on newer planes is 30A with switched mode BEC so it should be able to handle the 4 servos without overheating.

Wow, that thing is fast!! What power system is he running. Also what prop? I just got my T-28 used, it has the stock power system however I'm running a 10X6 GWS DD prop for more thrust and climbout power. I'm currently uploading a video I shot this morning. I made a 2nd canopy for my T-28 to do some AV's. I'll post it later.

Here is the video.

My standard setup for power and speed is a Turnigy 35-48 1000Kv motor with a 60A Turnigy PLush ESC powered by Zippy 3S 3000mAh 25C packs. I can swing an 11x8.5 or a 12x6 depending on what I want to do that day

I couldn't find that motor, are you sure it's not the 1100kv version?
