I was able to do a proper loop with no problem, using moderate back pressure on the stick, (proper) and full throttle with prop at 2250 rpm. I then tried a hard pull, and she snapped, also correct. Pointing the nose down, opposite rudder and off the elevator, she stopped the spin and recovered, all exactly as she should.Required about 4500 feet to recover, again about correct. Excessive use of rudder will really snap a roll, and will cause big problems if low and slow. Aileron rolls, barrel rolls, loops, were well done, when flown fast and open, as a warbird should be. Well, as fast as a T-28 will go.:icon_lol:
I had one problem with the radios. Somehow, right after take-off, while on climbout, ATC weather, for a different airport than I was using, KSEE, Gillespie in San Diego, Ca. came on, and I could not turn it off. I had to turn ALL the radios off manually, never did find out for sure which one actually turned it off. I could then turn on the sim's ATC and use it, even though the aircraft's radios were off.
Other than that, I really enjoyed my short flight around San Diego with it. Excellent job, Anthony. Thank you.
