StarFlight kits, hand-made by experts in the Ukraine, have become famous for quality and value. The Pulsar 3200 PRO is a development of the popular Pulsar 3200, but has been completely redesigned. The new design incorporates extra dihedral at the centre of the wing to maximise thermalling potential in small, tight thermals.

The completely new nose pod is now moulded in one piece with a canopy to access the internals - ideal for the new F5J event where you need to access the data logger after each flight. The nose is also longer for easier balancing and has a slight droop.

The wing is in three pieces mounted on a slight pylon to enable split flaps to be operated by two servos. This gives the ability to employ crow-braking for effective landing control (flap down, ailerons up, compensating elevator). A well-tuned model with this feature is a delight to land on a chosen spot.

Carbon/kevlar/balsa construction has been used throughout (except the power pod, which is only kevlar to minimise interfernece with 2.4 GHz radios) to give great strength with minimal weight. A D-box leading edge, carbon-capped ribs and carbon trailing edges are features of this model. Ailerons, flaps and rudder are pre-hinged with integral shrouds to cover the hinge gaps. This is magnificent construction!

If you are looking for a large size, superior glider, beautifully constructed, at a reasonable price, you need look no further!

This model has a cross-tail as illustrated and now employs an all-moving tail mounted on a carbon stand in front of the fin and rudder.

Specifications are:

  • Power recommendation 1: MVVS 4.6/840 SPORT outrunner and 3S with a 14x9.5" prop at 40A or 4S with a 12x8 at 36A
  • Power recommendation 2: MVVS 5.6/690 outrunner and 3S with a 15x10" prop at 35A or 4S with a 14x7 at 43A for more lively performance
  • Power recommendation 3: These new versions are so light, I would even try an MVVS 3.5/960 with a 12x6.5" prop at 27A for F5J - it should have plenty of power for that event! Yes - this is successful!

  • Power recommendations 4: Hacker A20-6XL

  • Power recommendation 5: Scorpion-Reisenauer geared - small heli motor grafted to a superlative Reisenauer gearbox for light weight and slim lines

  • Please note: New versions have a larger 40-42mm nose and will accommodate a range of motors.
