It is a Japanese homepage.

Mr. Kano is the person who is famous in Japan.

I'm sorry in Japanese.

I am glad if useful.

I'm sorry.

There were not the Trinity F3B settings data.

Please refer to settings(セッティング) of various F3B.

Thank you oyazi...I was able to find the CG range listed on the site: 112-115 mm. Also discovered from the photos I am missing that tail cover for the boom.

Anybody have a sheet with the recommended control throws? Thanks.

Throw, test, land, modify, repeat

You flew it and it was too twitchy. Land, modify, throw again, repeat

If it's like the F3F, I don't think a build guide exists. Personally I just maxed everything out and use dual rates/expo from there to tame it for various conditions. Having some idea for the crow/elevator comp travel is kind of nice though... or maiden in a place that's easy/soft to land.

Back off Rapid Raptor! Well I now have the CG range which is nice to know when comparing to where it is set at now... I will have to measure where this one is at right now. Tim told me it was a hot setup anyway and probably very competitive as is. I think I'm close to a good CG but will add a little lead to the nose and see where we are at.

I can deal with setting the throws just wanted to see if there was published recommended throws, for racing, crusing, thermal modes, etc. Guess not.
