Trinity F3F Carbon D-box or full carbon

Hello

I like Trinity.
I may purchase it.
I am at a loss which I make it.

Trinity F3F Carbon D-box (balsa) 2500g
or
Trinity F3F full carbon (balsa) 2800g

Which do you have?
Please teach each characteristic.
Please teach how you liked it.

Can you perform DS in Carbon D-box?
Does not strength have any problem?

English is not good, and I'm sorry.

Hi Oyazi,

We asked this same question a few weeks ago on RCGroups. The advice was to get the D-box version for slope flying.

I had a full carbon version Trinity. Heavy, but strong. Probably stronger than necessary.

Carbon D box is PLENTY strong-- all carbon is too heavy for some F3F conditions. Depends on if you want to race, or fun fly!

I love my all carbon but if i was to do it again would go with the D-box. It seems to have a broader range of conditions it will fly in. Trinity is a GREAT plane though and you will be pleased.
