Mystery Gliders

I recently have taken possession of a passing friends glider collection and need help identifying a few of them in order to track down missing parts. Here is the first of many; any help would be much appreciated and links if possible.

Looks like a Trinity F3b/f plane.
SoaringUSA carried them in several different layups and configurations.
Doesn't look like they're listed anymore though.

I have a Trinity and yes, it does look similar.

Yup, that's it for sure. How does it fly? Any good at TD or strictly F3B?

Nice planes, not going to beat one of the latest greatest TD planes but good fun.

As long as its a decent flier I'll be happy since I just fly for fun.

Anyone have a Trinity wing they want to sell or trade?

It is a bit heavy (by modern F3J standards) for TD on a calm day, but is there is lift about it can do well. When it gets windy it is more in it's element!

That's good to know; we get a lot of windy days here and the lift is booming in the spring and fall. I've gone to 2500' on my Airtronics Legend at 90 oz. on a good day.
