StarFlight kits, hand-made by experts in the Ukraine, have become famous for quality and value. The Pulsar 3600 PRO is a stretched version and 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 thermaling 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 giving down-thrust.

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:

  • wing span 3.62m
  • wing section AG-25 modified
  • R/C functions: rudder, elevator, ailerons, flaps, motor control
  • kit weight 960g
  • flying weight 1.7kg approx.
  • 4 x Hyperion DS13 servos for wings or KST-DS135MG
  • 2 x Hyperion D09 servos for tail or KST-DS245H
  • Spinner size 40-42mm
  • realistic price for a glider of this size and calibre - completely assembled structure -
  • New shipment just arrived - price $1,595!
  • Book one now so that you do not miss out.
  • Power recommendation 1: MVVS 5.6/690 outrunner and 3S with a 15x10" prop at 35A or 4S with a 14x7 at 43A

  • Power recommendation 2: MVVS 4.6/840 outrunner in a case with 3S and a 14x9" prop at 40A - I have now launched my new Pulsar 4.0 PRO with this motor combination and a 1300-3S LiPo - because it is much lighter than previous verisons at 1.6kg, this set-up has plenty of power and even climbs out at half power!

  • Power recommendations 3: Hacker A20-6XL

  • Power recommendation 4: Scorpion-Reisenauer geared - small heli motor grafted to a superlative Reisenauer gearbox for light weight and slim lines


    Please note: Aussie versions have been ordered with a 40-42mm nose and will accommodate a range of motors. 40-42mm spinner required.
