Default Is trinity going out of business?

If you look at Great Planes (tower hobbies) web site all of the Trinity products are being discontinued by GP. They have been selling trinity stuff for ever. Also my local hobby shop stopped carrying them. Anyone know what is going on?

Trinity is now Epic. Same company, just a name change.

The thing I hate most is Trinity's Customer Service sucked to the dealers. How are they supposed to make money if the hobby shops don't sell there stuff? They treated my boss like he was a nobody, on something that was 100% there fault.

The Itsy Bitsy mini truck fiasko.. Jeeze..

Not name change, they Dissolved Trinity and started selling under Epic which is a legally separate company. For what reason we can only speculate... I'm pretty sure it wasn't to avoid reimbursement for crappy items or anything like that. The world may never know...

Legally separate yes, but in all other ways, same company. You do know what Epic stands for right?
