Introduction

NEW MOVES FROM AN OLD FAVORITE

Introduced as a ParkZone® model more than a decade ago, the T-28 Trojan 1.1m quickly became a favorite of low-time to experienced pilots alike! It had the scale looks of the North American Aviation T-28 Trojan used as a trainer by the Navy from 1952 to 1984, yet flew better than most sport RC models because of its incredible handling with no bad habits. The model's simplicity, durability, and easy handling made it especially popular with low-time pilots moving up to their first sport, low wing or warbird model after mastering a trainer. Plus, the convenient size allowed it to be flown at large parks and sports fields and transported easily without disassembly. Now the T-28 has been updated and upgraded to be more powerful, more capable, and more fun to fly than ever before! Stronger and reinforced parts combine with the more powerful 3S and 4S compatible power system featuring a telemetry-capable ESC to deliver higher speeds and higher energy aerobatic performance — while offering the same slow and scale-like, sport flying and easy handling capabilities the original was always known for.

Overview

A T-28 AT THE TOP OF ITS CLASS

Updated and upgraded, including a fully-painted, high-visibility trim scheme, the E-flite® T-28 Trojan 1.1m reaffirms its status as an excellent "next step" model for low-time pilots who have mastered a trainer and are looking for their first low-wing, sport or warbird model — while expanding its performance for experienced pilots with higher speed and higher energy aerobatic capabilities! With a common 3S 1800–2200mAh LiPo battery, the brushless power system featuring a specially-tuned motor delivers plenty of thrust and speed for low-time to intermediate pilots. Or, install a 4S battery for more speed and unlimited vertical performance without modifications or upgrades! Four servos and linkages are factory-installed for full aerobatic capability to perform loops, rolls, knife-edge, inverted flying, and more. The composite-reinforced EPO airframe includes stronger parts to handle the higher speeds and additional aerobatic capabilities, and for improved durability overall. Final assembly is fast and easy, no glue required, and the T-28 fits into almost any vehicle fully assembled — or the wing can be removed for even easier transport and storage. Any traditional RC flying field with paved, dirt or grass surfaces makes a suitable flying site, although skilled pilots can fly in smaller areas such as large parks or sports fields. The T-28 is inherently stable like the full-scale trainer platform, but the BNF® Basic version, featuring a Spektrum AR631 receiver, gives low-time and intermediate pilots the added benefits of exclusive AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select stabilization technologies. Best of all the ESC included with both versions is telemetry-capable to deliver real-time battery voltage, current, motor RPM, and other data via compatible receivers (including the AR631 included with the BNF Basic version) and Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters. And it all adds up to offer improved scale-like and sport flying, higher speed and higher energy aerobatic capabilities to deliver a sport scale flying experience you simply can't get anywhere else!

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 Complex Programming Required

  • The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any complex 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.

  • Updated and upgraded to offer improved scale-like and sport flying, higher speed and higher energy aerobatic capabilities
  • Easy to take off, fly and land, making it a perfect "next step" after a trainer, an excellent first scale or low-wing model
  • Spektrum™ AR631 receiver with fly-by range telemetry and industry-leading DSMX® technology
  • Easy to fly with innovative and optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection
  • BNF Basic completion level only requires a transmitter and charged battery to complete

More Capable

The lightweight yet durable composite-reinforced EPO airframe has been updated to handle more power, higher speeds and higher energy aerobatics. A stronger motor mount and nose gear steering arm, plus a new spar to better reinforce the wing, combine to make the T-28 Trojan 1.1m more capable than ever before.

 

More Powerful

The factory-installed brushless power system features a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC plus a specially-tuned motor to deliver an abundance of thrust with a 3S LiPo battery, or more speed and unlimited vertical performance with a 4S battery without the need for any modifications or upgrades.

 

Telemetry Capable
Telemetry Capable

The T-28 Trojan 1.1m is equipped with an ESC that can provide a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more via compatible receivers (including the AR631 installed in the BNF® Basic version) and Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, the NX6, 8 and 10, the iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.

 

Easy Assembly
Easy Assembly

No glue is required for final assembly, and you can have the T-28 Trojan 1.1m ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery! And although it's conveniently sized to fit fully assembled in just about any vehicle, you can also remove the wing for even easier storage and transport.

FAQ

The T-28 1.1m transmitter setup is brief and can be setup manually in a couple minutes. Refer to page 7 of the manual and use the DX Gen 2 settings for your NX8. Link to manual: https://www.horizonhobby.com/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-horizon-master/default/dwe8915904/Manuals/EFL08250-Manual-EN.pdf Here's a link to the transmitter file import process https://www.bladehelis.com/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-horizon-master/default/dw4167ab65/Manuals/SPM-Model-Setups-NX-TX.pdf

You can, though you would need to monitor motor and ESC temps initially. Performance will be very similar to the two-blade prop. Something like a 9x7 three-blade prop would be a good starting point.

Yes, flown by a skilled pilot that would be sufficient space. However, for your first several flights I would suggest a larger field until you get to know the aircraft and feel comfortable flying it within 100 meters.

Yes it has! :-) The horizontal stabilizer is now a molded foam, airfoiled piece. It has increased durability and stiffness over the stamped item you are referring to.

It would require some modification to fit a 3200mAh battery, especially the 4S. The battery compartment in the airplane is sized for a 4S 2200mAh battery.
The E-flite® T-28 Trojan 1.1m updates the longtime sport scale favorite with modern-day upgrades, making it even better equipped for scale-like and sport flying — plus higher speeds and higher energy aerobatics so it’s more fun to fly than ever before!
