Question
Glass Fiber vs Carbon Fiber

I was originally planning on getting getting an SK450 as me starting frame, and then transfer everything over to an AQ600 once i've learned to fly.

+Carbon Fiber Frame and Rounded Aluminum Arms
+400g
-$85

But HK came up with this

-GlassFiber frame and Square Aluminum Arms
-600g
+$34
+2 extra tiers for mounting points

Is 200 grams a lot? And would either of them handle vibrations differently? Would either hold up any better than the other in a crash?
