Update to my earlier post. My Pulstar has now flown. Very pleased with it, will be adding some more down-thrust to the motor mount this evening, but glide was spot on from the word go which made life a lot easier. I will also be trying to find a smaller prop to reduce the power a bit as it is over powered with 35 Watts on tap on my 5 x 3 prop.

Regards

Gordon

No idea what it weighs as I've mislaid my drug scales :lol:

Found my scales! 160 grammes = 5.6 ounces ready to launch with its 450 lipo.
Not sure how that compares or if it even matters now!

It’s very light Phil
Mine weighed in at 9.6 ounces and that’s why it was orriible

Ron
Ps- my excuse is my pixie receiver weighs 3.5 ounces alone.

Mine was just about 8 oz. with the battery I flew it with at Ponty: it did have slightly greater than plan wingspan, whereas Phil's model's wingspan was less than plan. Phil's model flew fine and with easily the greatest duration following the mass launch.
