The ParkZone T-28 Trojan 1.1m Plug-N-Play Electric Airplane builds on the legendary performance of the original, and takes it to new heights. Originally in production for nearly a decade, its friendly flying characteristics revolutionized what warbird flying in the convenient settings of park is all about. As a result, thousands of hobbyists realized the potent benefits of brushless electric power and that flying a small well-engineered warbird was nothing to fear. It also confirmed that construction with EPO foam proved that airframes could be lightweight and surprisingly durable.
Now, and likely forever, the ParkZone T-28 1.1m park flyer is the ideal model for solo pilots looking for the perfect first warbird. Distinctive in appearance, it’s growling radial-engine look, clear bubble canopy and stout airframe deliver exciting fighter appeal. Engineering with durable EPO material keeps wing load exceptionally low to offer great flight performance that has no bad tendencies. Steerable trike gear provides easy ground handling and the low-mounted wing delivers the ideal blend of natural stability and sport aerobatics capability. The vivid U.S. Navy-inspired trim scheme adds a historic connection that’s also easy to see while flying. Whether you want to enjoy low-wing agility at a local park, or just a fun sport-scale model to relax with, the ParkZone T-28 is the airplane you’ll never want to leave at home.
Durable Construction: Construction with durable EPO material makes it possible to replicate complex detail in a lightweight form. The result is an outstanding scale appearance that’s easy to maintain and allows the most satisfying flight experience possible to shine through.
Brushless Power: The powerful brushless outrunner motor installed features 960Kv and delivers smooth operation that’s surprisingly quiet. Excellent flight times and strong performance can be expected with 3S Li-Po battery packs from 1800–2200mAh.

What I'd work on:
The nose wheel connector that connects the front wheel ferrule to the control rod is notoriously weak. Mine cracked just putting the set screw in. I used the same part from a Mini Apprentice, which I had on hand and happens to be close to the same dimensions but has a brass insert. The set screw is offset so you have to adjust the clevis after installation to get the wheel to align straight. Shave a little plastic off the upper part of the bracket. It's not perfect, but it works and holds up. This fix is cheap.
Also, put some white duct tape over the wing wheel plates. They are just anchored into foam and will come loose after a few landings.
Otherwise a great basic plane for the money. I love flying it.
