Carbon Fiber vs Glass Fiber

Some people might question sometime about the differences between Carbon Fiber and Glass Fiber. Carbon Fiber and Glass Fiber are commonly used in RC Hobby Industry. Here we give you a little information between them.

Glass Fiber (Black)
This panel is cheapest and not as hard as Carbon Fiber.

Glass Fiber (Silver)
The panel is priced between Glass Fiber and Carbon Fiber Composite which is better than the Black Glass Fiber.

Carbon Fiber Composite
Carbon Fiber Composite (it might also named "glassy carbon") means the panel made by more than one material and it contains Carbon Fiber (one of the material). Usually mixed up by "Carbon Fliber + Glass Fiber". The panel is harder than Glass Fiber but not as good as 3K Carbon Fiber. In general, Carbon Fiber Composite Panels are not that bad and are commonly used more than 3K Carbon Fiber in RC Hobby.

The word "Composite" tells you that the materials of the product made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties (this means it is not full carbon). If you still do not understand, please visit Wiki page below:

3K Carbon Fiber
This usually means full Carbon Fiber material. So it is full Carbon panel and the quality is the best but it is expensive than Carbon Fiber Composite.

So do i get Carbon Fiber Composite or 3K Carbon Fiber for the product?
In most situation, if the panel is 3K Carbon Fiber, we would (if we know) definitely put a remark to describe it is 3K Carbon Fiber. This will attract the attention of our customers. But we would usually describe the material of the carbon fiber in the specification on the product page so you know which one you are getting. If there is no information on the material, then you can assume it is "Carbon Fiber Composite".

So in most places, if the seller does not specify the Carbon Fiber is "Composite" or "3K". You may assume it is "Composite" first because as we said above, "3K Carbon Fiber" will draw the attention to the customers. If it is 3K, why not to tell?
