Overview

The E-flite® Carbon-Z® T-28 2.0m is a BIG model that makes it easy to enjoy a large-scale warbird flying experience unlike any other. Exclusive Carbon-Z construction allows an airplane as large as this to be rigid like a conventional all-wood airframe, yet lightweight so it can have friendly flying characteristics. Plus, the durability of the EPO material means it can easily handle any bumps along the way while also being easy to repair if needed. Numerous scale details include a cockpit with a simulated instrument panel and pilot figure, a cowl fitted with a replica radial engine, plus many other surface details. It's also equipped with functional flaps and operational retracts—which are factory-installed so you can be flying in almost no time. Simply install a charged 6S 3200–7000mAh battery, bind the receiver to a compatible full-range 6–7+ channel Spektrum® transmitter, complete some easy final assembly and fly!

Carbon-Z<sup>®</sup> Construction

Carbon-Z® Construction

Exclusive Carbon-Z construction allows the airframe to be chambered, significantly reducing weight while delivering rigidity comparable to all-wood construction.

 

Electric Retracts

Electric Retracts

The tricycle landing gear of the Carbon-Z T-28 features a steerable nose wheel and the simplicity of servoless, electric retracts. Split main gear doors and strut covers add to the scale appearance.

 

Operational Flaps

Operational Flaps

The operational flaps feature movement much like the full-scale T-28 and independent servos for the most reliable control possible.

 

Scale Details

Scale Details

Under the clear canopy sits a pilot figure and additional cockpit detail. The cowling features a replica radial engine and the scale-inspired trim scheme offers excellent in-flight visibility.

 

Powerful Motor

Powerful Motor

The potent 60-size brushless motor drives a custom 2-blade propeller and is compatible with a wide-range of 6S LiPo batteries from 3200–7000mAh (battery sold separately).

SAFE technology

Bind-N-Fly Completion Level Advantage

Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3–aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a heightened sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.

If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits

  • These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.

Automatic Self-Leveling

  • The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It's also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Switch Assignment- No Programming Required

  • The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any programming and takes just a few seconds.

If you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.
