The Parkzone T-28 Trojan is available as an Ultra Micro version, that is possible to fly in your own backyard!

The Parkzone T-28 Trojan: Ultra micro BNF

Model Description:

This is the exciting Ultra Micro version of Parkzone's very popular T-28 Trojan park flyer. If the wind is zero then you can fly this scale RC plane in your own back yard!

The tricycle landing gear (with steerable nose wheel) makes ground handling a pleasure and the slow flight is very safe but as with it's larger cousin, the scale aerobatics are very satisfying! 

With a wing span of 16.5" and an all-up weight of 1.34oz this is a truly micro scale RC airplane.

This  BNF version comes 100% complete and just requires your Spektrum or JR 2.4GHz DSM2 RC transmitter to be bound to it.

Note that this is a full 4-channel Trojan with rudder, elevators, ailerons and throttle control.

Do not through away the box! It makes a great carrying case, that you can use to safely transport the Parkzone T-28 Trojan, to the flying field or indoor arena.


Construction:

Injection molded from foam, like all Parkzone airplanes. The foam can be repaired with foam safe CA. I think that any other glue would prove to be too heavy.

When repair is not possible, then a full compliment of spare parts are available from the manufacturers (Horizon Hobby) Listed under "Parts and Accessories".


Kit Contents:

The RC airplane along with the charger and all the batteries
  • Completely finished and assembled Parkzone T-28 Trojan Ultra Micro.
  • DC charger, with dry cells.
  • 3.7 V 120 mAh 1S Li-Po flight battery.

Extra Components Required:

You will need a 4-channel minimum DSM2 or DSMX 2.4 GHz RC transmitter. Another option to consider is a second battery to lessen wait times between flights of your Parkzone Trojan.


Videos:

This video, by Horizon, does show someone flying in their own backyard. I would think we would all wish for backyard like this one! No fences and just a few trees. However it is a good video and does show the features of the Parkzone Trojan well.

 
 

Flying Impressions of the Parkzone T-28 Trojan:

This is definitely not a beginner RC plane. For more details of ideal first RC airplanes, take a look here - Hobbyzone Beginner RC Planes.

This is a good model for those with some experience with low wingers and ailerons. It is a stable flying airplane, that has the reputation for handling well and can be slowed down, for slow fly-bys and landings.

In some ways, an ideal first aileron airplane.

The steerable nose wheel is good for keeping the take-off straight.


Pros:

  • Small size and light weight means that it tends to bounce, rather than crash.
  • Comes with a 6-channel, 2.4 GHz receiver.
  •  Sport aerobatics are easy to do and a lot of fun!
  • Full 4-channel control is great in such a small model.
  • Landing gear can be removed and then hand launching is possible.

Cons:

  • Flies fast and can eat up a lot of space quickly!
  • Foam tends to be brittle and break easily, but can be repaired.

Reviews:

In general the reviews were very positive, the main criticisms were made by flyers with little experience and were generally about the ease of damaging the Parkzone T-28.

One point is to take some time to check all the surface travels of the elevator, rudder and ailerons. Check the manual and do as suggested there to get the control surfaces centered. No where does it suggest the amount of travel required. I would suggest you use +/-1/4in.(6mm) for high rate and 50% of this for low rate. As you get more experience, the travel can be increased. Start your first flight on low rate.
