Matrix is a high-performance glider model developed by Christian Fiedler and designed for F3B / F3F.

Freestyler 3 clone!  This is not a 100% clone but all the parts are interchangeable with Freestyler 3.   It has same feel and flying characteristics of the TUD Freestyler 3 without the price or wait.  It was created in part because the German F3B team wanted a similar plane with interchangeable parts. It comes in 3 layups.

In the design increased value was placed on the speed flight (speed), without having to compromise in the other disciplines such as high-start, cross-country flight and thermal flight. Profiles were developed that range from 7.9% thickness (C15679) at root over 7.3% (C15673) at the thinnest part of the wing to 7.5% (C16675) at the edge bend.

With a total of 9 profiles adapted in thickness and curvature, the outstanding all-round characteristics and the easy handling of the model are achieved. Due to the design of the fuselage, the lever arm and the tail size an excellent directional stability for the cross-country flight as well as the task F3F is achieved and at the same time the circular behavior is positively influenced in the thermal flight. The narrow hull offers little front resistance, but still enough space for 2x LiIo cells with 2900mAh for high voltage operation.

The matrix is ​​ballasted with connectors (4x150g) and area ballast (8x130g). 
This allows a precise shifting of the center of gravity for the different tasks. 
Only the latest technologies and the highest quality materials are used in the construction.

The MATRIX is an all-rounder that shows top performance in all disciplines.
