Yellow is one of my favorite colors on models. Easy for me to see.

It's cute, but do I read the price right @ 164.99? Hey, thats great and all but the 40 Pulse is CHEAPER at some stores!

Bring the price more in-line with the .25 Stick and Ill buy it!

It's a pound lighter than the 40 size and only 2 inches shorter on the wingspan.....probably end up being a better performer than an electrified 40 size.

A pound lighter? They must get to that number with smaller batts and motor/gear, no?

I could not see how they could build the Pulse 40 any lighter. With a Power 46, 5S 4000, CC-80, BEC and full size servos I was right at 6lbs. You had to be careful where you picked the model up or you could damage it!

I do like the yellow though!

And here I thought this was going to be another Gotcha! thread. I may be flying my first pulse when this is released.

Yellow - yes!

Yellow is the best color for visibility. Count me in on this one. The 40 is a great electric but I assume this will be even better.

I wonder if the cowling fits a Sig Four Star 40?

Hi guys, we are about a pound lighter than teh 40 size model. When you design for electric from the start that is the benefit.

Anyways, as for the price. We have seen an ever increasing rise in pricing from China. With all the new labor laws and such prices are going up. This is our first on to hit with the new pricing from the start.

Really great flying model. I am not a huge fan of yellow either, but we all were getting tired of the same red, white, and blue colors we have done for years. It really pops in the air against a blue sky!!!

I wasn't a fan of the orange on the Hangar 9 Sundowner 50, but, I have started really liking it. I have a Mountain Models Switchback Sr. that I am going to put orange on now. The yellow may be the same for me.

Very true, but I didn't see anything saying it was included with the kit or that it could be purchased as a spare part. Can someone confirm?

BTW, I do like the floats. Sure wish they'd make some for their 480 sized planes like the T-craft.

Typing this in my hotel room in China. I saw the Pulse XT 25e's under construction at the vendor's place a couple of days ago. They're coming together nicely.

As far as weight vs. size, check the wing area, not the wing span, for a better comparison of how this one can be lighter than the 40.

The aluminum spinner will indeed be available as an option part, along with a few close friends in normal sizes.

Vendor visits in China are always interesting. Tonight I had to eat bee larva custard. I'm not kidding. What we go through for you guys...
