The long awaited upgrade to my favorite warbird. Flew this full size advanced Navy trainer back in the 70’s and always had a love for the Trojan. Having both the V3 and V4 versions, in comparison the V4 has many improvements with one feature I loved about the V3 gone, working Cowl Flaps. While they really did not assist in cooling, they were just cool to open and close on takeoff and landing. The new motor in the V4 really increases the speed over the V3, while it was no slouch, the V4 easily pulls away when flying side by side down the field. The improved oleo style struts do take some of the bounce out of landings for the “skilled” pilot. The relocation of the tail surface servos and move over to digital for all controls makes for a very responsive bird.
Shock absorbing metal oleo struts covered with scale plastic parts for looks
Glueless wing "Servo Pockets" (servos in the wing are screwed in as opposed to glued for easier replacement)
Upgraded (larger) 4258-650KV motor with Japanese ball bearings and magnets
Pre-installed ball links on push rods as opposed to the old clevis-control horn setup
FMS multi-connector system for cleaner wiring and easy wing removal
FMS removed the functional cowl flaps. While technically a downgrade, there are two less servos to worry about
Detailed cockpit with pilot figure
Bright LED navigation lights
Scale details like chrome spinner and landing gear doors
Made of durable EPO foam

No matter whether you had an FMS T28 before, the new V4 is full of surprises. First of all, the foam ratio has been upgraded from EPO 40 to the lighter and larger EPO 52, which alleviates the airplanes weight, without weakening the airplane. Moreover, the original oil paint which has an unavoidable negative side effect of corrosion has been replaced by the latest environmental water-based paint.
The latest FMS multi-connector is used in the V4, which makes the assembly easy and simple while leaving the wires orderly and user- friendly. The 1400mm T28 V4 adopts the new design of ball linkage to remove the play for a more accurate flight. The updated 4258 kv650 motor increases the power and speed around 30% higher than the previous V3 version, plus the new power system can work with 4S, 5S, and 6S batteries to satisfy different customer requirements. Both front and rear landing gears are now metal, with a shock absorption function for hard landings.
In terms of construction and performance the 1400mm T28 V4 is totally different to the old versions. It is certain that the V4 greatly enhances flight appeal.
