After what feels like quite a long wait for the new canopy, I’ve managed to get over to Northwick Park to maiden the Pulse. Lovely October afternoon, a little breeze, almost no clouds in the sky with glorious sunshine. Perfect conditions!
I put 3 packs through her, all completely uneventful, which is how I like it. I tried a few gentle aerobatic manoeuvres and she had ample power to pull round a loops without even using full throttle. I’m now pleased I didn’t bother putting the bigger motor and 4s setup in her.
I had thought about rigging up the ailerons as flaperons, but now I’ve seen how she handles at low speed I’m not going to bother. The stall showed itself with a very slight mushing around, no worrying wing drops thankfully! And landing with just under idle power meant she just floated on and on.
I’ve updated the page for the Pulse which is here. I’ll update that with any significant updates!
