Esprit Models Pulsar 2S Pro Sailplane

The Pulsar 2S Pro Competition is the latest addition to the ever-growing Pulsar family of hand-made competition/sport sailplanes. The wing is a built-up Carbon Fiber D-box design that utilizes carbon fiber faced balsa ribs and a carbon fiber strip trailing edge. The rear section of the wing is covered with Ultracote. The fuselage pod is made of kevlar with canopy as well as tail boom made of carbon fiber. The hand-built tail is made from laminated carbon/balsa strips covered with Ultracote. All control surfaces are pre-hinged with KEVLAR tape. This fully built sailplane needs only your radio installation. The Pulsar has been built to minimize weight and maximize strength. The careful use of composites combined with an underlying wood structure in the wing ensures a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time. This synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to design and construction. This is extremely light competition model. We have found the Pulsar to be an excellent light lift performer. The long tail moment and large tail surfaces enhance low speed handling.
