C3 vs A3 Can't Post

I would like to know from people who flew both the difference between these two. I can presume better start and glide for a3 and better speed and handling for the c3, but it would be better to have people reviews. Thanks

not a lot of people that are not squirrel people have two different new suits, at least people I know. I have a c3 and love it there is nothing I would jump that the c3 wouldn't be able to do and an A3 would. depends on what your jumping. Ive never jumped an a3 but I had an A1 and jumped an A2.

I saw Scotty-bob posting a video of a new suit called the Corvis (I think) due early 2019. Itís supposed to be a bit mellower version of the A3 from what little I could gather on his fb. It might be worth sending them an email about that too :)

Yes I know for the corvid. But I was more "interested" to know about C3 and how it fly compared to the A3

Iíve done nearly 200 BASE jumps with my A3 and one with a C3. But I did the one on the C3 from Via and then the same exact jump in my A3 with same conditions less than an hour later. The first 3 ish seconds of the start weíre basically identical as expected and then the A3 was about 40-60í higher through the rest of the arc. I wouldnít say I was trying to start as fast as possible on either by it was same technique on both. The C3 was much easier to dive than the A3. Iíve got a C3 a couple weeks or so in a few months I can give more feedback but Iím guessing you want sooner info.

Message Gabriel Lott, he has a C3 and A3 and jumps them both regularly and can probably give you a much better opinion.

Thanks for the answers.
I managed to fly with guys in A3 and C3 since.
My actual suit is still good enough to follow both without troubles, good news for my money :)
