Jim, when I asked about this, they told me they didn't use white because they didn't want their planes to be confused with AVAs.

So how well does this 47oz Perfection in a light brise 5mph , does it well in flying backwards?

How many inputs / correction are nescessary to keep a level flight when every ant fart possibly will lift a wingtip.

Too much speciaized and fragile for my taste


Cheers

Where did you come up with this one, we said we can do it but it might take 6-8 weeks. Our manufacturer does not have white transparent we will have to ship covering from us.

Yes we would like to distinguished our models from somebody else's. What is wrong with that?

I'm not saying its impossible, just over priced based on the conversations I had with your Pulsar rep. I'm surprised you'd have to ship the color to them when that covering is available throughout Europe. Anyway, we decided to go with stock planes and change the color ourselves.

4 meter Pulsars?

Howdy,

Blue and white looks good in 3.6 and 4.0!
And at a great price!

Bob,

You bet! BTW, Could they make those tips RED and leave the bottom naked black? I'll take the weight penalty and pay a bit extra, if needed. That is a serious question. That would really make my Christmas!!! Thanks.

Preston,
The wings are glass skin, no Naked carbon. That is how the 57oz model is achieved... Only on the ST model has "naked bottoms"...
