A WARBIRD FOR GLOW OR ELECTRIC POWER
Are you in the market for an easy to build warbird, that’s compact in size and easy to fly? Check out our Classic Construction article coming in the Summer 2020 issue of MAN. Look at the desirable traits in RC trainers, big wing with lots of dihedral, tricycle landing gear, ample room for equipment and rugged construction. We’re not saying that this T-28 should be your first model after destroying three ARF foamie, but it is one to be considered if your interests lean toward RC scale. Designed by Rich Uravitch, this model has been built and flown in both glow- and electric-power configurations; and both versions performed well, each with its own advantages.
