The name just annoys me since F3P and 3D are two completely different flying styles.

I think, like the HK "shark" pylon racer, it just has F3P styling. (it looks REALLY cool)

As mentioned it is a TechOne Trenches rebadged by HK. A lot of TechOne stuff rebadged by various people.

I've had it confirmed that the Trenches is a knock off of the Topmodel Kosmos.

I built and flew a Trenches in F3P-A at the EIM in Dec and my comments on the models aren't publishable on a forum like this.

As a fun indoor model it is OK but not as a competitive F3P plane.

Almost all of HK's profile foamies are Techone coppies. They do offer them at a good price though.

I don't think they are copies but genuine TechOne production, re-branded and with different printing in many cases (Galaxy / Malibu II for example). In some cases, HK adds a motor to the package.

Foam's Law
TechOne will make anything for anyone for the right price - as it happens, KingTech is their rebranding for HobbyKing, usually with a different name and colour scheme, but always the same foam and hardware.

Wildpalms comments on the original Trenches are accurate... its a pile of ****. Yet for some strange reason, I bought his one off him.... just what did you put in my beer that night mate?

Matrix F3P Build


Does anyone know if there's a build video for this model. My old eyes can't make out a lot of the required detail in the manual
