Diatone 2019 GT R239 vs Diatone 2019 GT R349

Diatone 2019 GT R239 vs Diatone 2019 GT R349

Due to the larger size, robust carbon fiber frame and more powerful motors, the the GT R349 has almost twice weight of the GT R239. Another major difference between these two is the battery type. While the GT R239 is powered by 3S LIPOs the GT R349 by 4S ones. IMHO the GT R239 is suitable for indoor practice and the GT R349 for outdoor flights (it needs more space to unleash its full power.).

As you can see int he image above, there are no much visual differences between the GT R249 Rabit and the GT R249+. Both, features same kind of carbon fiber frame and protective canopy.

While the GT R249 has wheelbase of 95mm and 2″ propellers, the GT R249+ has wheelbase of 115mm and 2.5″ propellers. The rest of the electronic parts, including the motors are same.

  1. I like them all!
    Are you planning to review any of these cuties? I just saw a short video were they test the roughness of the Diatone 2019 GT R249’s frame. It is pretty impressive. It seems that the injection modeling frame performs even better than a carbon fiber one.
