The E-flite® Carbon-Z® T-28 airplane is a big warbird
model with all the benefits that make RC flight fun. Exclusive Carbon-Z
construction allows a large airplane such 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 Z-Foam™
material means that any bumps along the way are simple to repair.
Numerous scale details include a cockpit with instruments and pilot
figure while the fitted cowl highlights a dummy radial engine. Of
course, no warbird would be complete without functional flaps and
operational retracts—both are factory installed.
Since the boom of practical electric power, foam has been an important
construction material for RC aircraft. Stable and lightweight,
revolutionary Z-Foam material came along to add a level of resiliency
and reparability that made RC flight more fun, especially for pilots
with very little free time. Exclusive Carbon-Z construction combines
the durability of Z-Foam, the strength of lightweight plywood and
carbon-fiber with a specially designed hollow-core airframe to take
high performance flight beyond any other construction method. Today,
Carbon-Z delivers “Big Foam” with a platform
that’s as friendly as the iconic ParkZone® T-28, yet
maintains all of the above benefits for an experience that’s
impressive at the field and in flight.
The advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization –
3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel AR636A
receiver is what helps give the E-flite Carbon-Z T-28 an incredibly
solid look and feel in the air. It works behind the scenes to help
counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining 3-axis sensing
with specially tuned flight control software. As a result, an
impressive model like the T-28 is made even better because your
workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced.
Start flying right away with your full-range 6+ channel transmitter
with Spektrum DSM2®/DSMX® technology, a
3500–5000mAh 6S 30C 22.2V Li-Po flight battery and suitable
Exclusive Carbon-Z technology features composite construction that
allows the wing to be chambered, significantly reducing weight while
increasing rigidity comparable to all-wood construction.
The AS3X advantage
The AS3X® technology that’s a part of the AR636A
receiver installed in the T-28 BNF Basic version significantly reduces
your workload to fly smoothly. Only its specially tuned electronics and
software offer flight performance that feels rock-solid, right out of
The tricycle landing gear of the Carbon-Z T-28 feature nose wheel
steering and the reliability of servoless retraction. Split-main gear
doors and strut covers add to the scale appearance.
The operational flaps feature movement much like the full-scale T-28
and independent servos for the most reliable system of control possible.
Under the clear canopy sits a pilot figure and additional cockpit
detail. The cowling features a dummy radial engine and the
scale-inspired paint scheme offers excellent in-flight visibility.
Powerful 60-size motor
The potent 60-size brushless power system drives a custom 2-blade
propeller and is able to use a wide-range of 6S Li-Po battery packs
from 3500–5000mAh (battery sold separately).
The main-wing separates into two pieces for easy transport and features
a fiberglass wing joiner. Each plug-in horizontal stabilizer half
attaches to the tail section with a single screw.
High-quality metal gear
Seven servos throughout the airframe help deliver the primary control
functions. The single micro-class servo for nosewheel steering saves
weight while offering precise ground handling.
