Donatas is very happy to introduce you to the new F3P biplane, the Citrino. This is a design from South Africa. During the origins of F3P, biplanes were extremely popular. Two wings allowed slow flight due to the extra lift and the drag. Biplanes were perfectly suited for the heavy equipment of the time and simple F3P sequences. Once everyone started to evolve and try to build lighter planes an use lighter equipment, monoplane concept became the logical solution. However the return of the indoor biplane was just a matter of time. With todays knowledge and light-weight equipment, a very advanced biplane is a good choice for F3P competitions starting from basic class to insane FAI sequences. Our friends from South Africa show that Citrino is very capable biplane, by putting solid flights in first world championship in Coburg, Germany.
The Citrino from Donatas Design, is slightly bigger compared to the prototype. The wingspan is 800mm , Fuselage is 960mm. The large wing area allows different equipment from the slightly heavy and cheaper budget gear, to the lightest F3P marvels like Lantsov coaxial system and Hitec 5035 servos to achieve best results. The Citrino flys very well if the RTF weight is kept in range of 90-130g.
This plane is inspired by F3A legend Mr. Wolfgang Matt from Liechtenstein and his latest F3A biplane Citrin. Mr. Matt has permitted Donatas Design to release the small brother of Citrin, so special thanks goes to Liechtenstein!
