Pulsar / Simply the Best

The Pulsar aka Simply the Best is ready to fly. The only damage from its test flight crash was a small dent in the D tube of the wing at the center mounting peg, not worth trying to fix. The fuselage has now been faired into a 30mm spinner and painted with a rubbed out finish of red Krylon.

The wing tips were covered (as purchased) with a pretty apple green film that was almost invisible when the plane was up high, reducing the visibility of the plane by the area of the tips. They have now been recovered in the same red as the rest of the wing - seeing it is much easier now.

The motor, a Razor 2500 with a CC 25A ESC/BEC turned a 9 x 6 folding prop for the test flight. Next flight, with a draw of 12.5 amps on the 3S 1320 TP Prolite pack, will be with a Freudenthaler 10 x 7. The radio is a 4 channel Berg controlling the motor and a mixed V-tail.
