New Pulsar For Light Lift

Esprit Model has the new Pulsar 2E in stock and it's a looker. This version is based on the Pulsar 2000 M and features a built up D-box design made from balsa and plywood. The wing and tail section is covered with transparent Ultracote by hand so you can see the wing structure underneath and appreciate the quality of the work by the builders. The fuse is made from 2.4Ghz friendly gel-coated fiberglass with kevlar reinforcements for strength.

The Pulsar 2E Ultra Lite is an ARF that you'll need to do the final assembly and electronics install on. One nice feature is that the control surfaces are all pre-hinged with kevlar tape that will make finishing the model quick and easy. All up, this sailplane should weigh in around 19-23oz which should yield fantastic performance in light lift conditions.

I see this as a sign they prepare starting a F3-RES version... the assault to destroy this class has begun

I saw these planes at the RC model show....
why do they look and feel sooo brittle?


for this much money and the technology these days,
can't they make a much more 'less flimsy' version?
I know they perform well, but one bad landing its its tooth picks all over the field.

This is why I've been hesitant over the years in buying "professional" E-sailplanes.
Foam/molded lightweight dense plastics' planes these days can go just as fast, and travel much further now because
the ability to hold sooo much capacity in batteries.

There are foam/plastic planes that glide faster then with the powerON

I own a few of these sailplanes. They are not brittle and will take more pounding than you think. Unless of course you are a completely ham fisted glider driver. A number of mine are 10 +years old with lots of contest work on them and they are still in fine fettle.

No ideea for other versions, but 2.5m electric fuselage is indeed brittle, cracked gelcoat on mine only by grasping him too tightly in a launch more vigorous than average. Just two fingers...

You cracked Kevlar fuselage? What are they feeding you in Romania?

I have 5 pulsars now and have had over 20 over the years, I have never ever cracked any yet.
Neither seen any cracked yet, unless somebody crashes it straight to the ground.

As a member of both the crappy builders club and fliers with little children I hope they do come out with a competitive ARF. I have an X-RES that probably will always remain an unfinished center section.

No biggie and probably a typo, but empty weight is not .5 oz? 295 grams is 10.4 ozs. Lovely plane just like all the pulsars. Woukd love to see a 2m RES or flap version.

I love my electric 3.2 REF and 2.5 FH and REF. All three from Esprit.
I have abused my 2.5 more than I should and its shows no signs of wear or damage at all. They are much tougher than you would think.
