This is a lightweight electric glider with ailerons and FLAPS. This is what you need for those accurate landings required in glider competitions. The PRO version replaces earlier models of this size, which started with the Bingo and now comes with a hatch in the one piece fuselage pod for easy access (great for F5J).

The Pulsar 2.5 PRO is made in the Ukraine by free flight modellers who know how to build strong and light. The total weight of this kit is 390g. That's right, only 390g!! And that's for a 2.5m glider!

The wing is a three-piece unit of carbon construction with balsa ribs capped with carbon strip, and already covered in Oracover Lite. The leading edge is all carbon/kevlar weave cloth back to the spar. The trailing edge is a thin strip of carbon. The joiners are carbon rods. The wing section is an AG25 modified - thin (for a fast climb) and slightly undercambered (for a great glide). The wing now has slight dihedral in the centre to aid with thermalling in light conditions and tight thermals, and the flaps are now split and require two servos.

The fuselage pod is made from kevlar (2.4 GHz friendly) and has a white gel coat. The fibreglass nose former is already fitted and strengthened. The tail boom is a rolled carbon tube.

The tailplane and fin bolt on (bolts supplied). Other accessories include control horns and carbon fairings for aileron and flap servos.

Controls are ailerons (two servos), flaps (two servos), elevator and rudder. Sub-micro servos like the JR-375 or the Dymond D60 are recommended for low cost, or Hyperion digital servos for maximum power. A new possibility is the KST range of metal-geared, metal-case compact servos: KST-DS245MG and KST-DS245H

The nose is a slim 30mm, so the Hacker A20-6XL with 4:1 gearbox fits this model coupled to Hyperion G5 or Hyperion G6 packs (850, 900 or 1100 mAh packs) for a battery, or another motor - the superlative, thin motor/gearbox in a Leopard/Reisenauer combination, and for direct drive, a Hyperion ZS2218-14 provides an economy option if you can cope with the motor cables.
