Default Pulse Xt 25e From E-flight.

Is anyone thinking of Adding Her to your hanger, I know i am when i get her in September. She looks like a great Bird. I just want to know, If i go with the power 32, Should i use an 11.1v 2100 mah? I Can't wait to get her.

Wayne, a member of Moon Port Modelers RC Club sent out an e-mail of him selling two of his models and both were in the 50 inch wing span.

I just could not pass the deal he gave me of an E-Flite Pulse XT 25e for a cool $80.00 The model had been striped of its Yellow and White covering and he re-covered with quality Hangar9 White and looks spectacular.

Also, it is at least one pound lighter than my E-Flite Advance 25e and the tail boom is NOT built like a coffin!

I can't wait to place another E-Flite 480 (1020Kv) motor and see this zoom with zest appeal. Why the smaller motor, just personal taste as I like to keep all my models as light as possible and I have already done this with several models such as the E-Flite Advance!

Here is the picture of the model:

Can't tell you about the model - all my models are made by a custom design/build service that comes up with precisely the right model for what I need - but on that Power 32 motor, I've had one for a while now. I fly it on a 4S 3700mA LiPo and it pulls around 40A in its present application. A 3S 2100mA pack is not really going to deliver what this motor is capable of putting out.

If you're looking to keep weight down, and already have those 2100 packs, you might want to look at the Power 25 and prop it to match those packs.

Thanks Dereck,

No, I just don't think the Power 25 is what I need on this lighter model. My E-Flite Advance 25e is presently flying with the higher Kv of 480 (1020Kv) and swinging the Park Zone 2-Blade 9.5 X 7.5 and it is almost 4lbs. with very good mild sport manners. It is not a rocket ship but, does not display any Ton Tossy manners either.

Many have come over before and after I have flown my E-Flite Advance-480 and even though I have posted the Video for all to see they still come and say my model is under powered?

I am very satisfied with the exception that the E-Flite Advance tail boom is built like a coffin and I am excited to place the same power system on this model (Pulse XT) with that E-Flite 480 (1020Kv) and same propeller!

I will do a weigh-in comparison tonight between the two models as like you posted, I can use the lighter and smaller capacity 2200's !!!

What do you mean by "built like a coffin"? I haven't looked in any coffins lately.

Hum....I have heard of this reference at my RC Club from mostly retired gentlemen so, it seems they have seen many coffins

I guess what I was trying to say in that reference in which you called me out for is....

a model built with lots of wood and surrounded by nothing but, sheeting and without any lightening holes and certainly no cooling holes.

I do hope this suffices your question.

My dad's advanced with two 1800's in parellel on 3 cells only averaged 7 mins a flight. A single 4 cell 2200 hit 6 minutes with much better performance.

Well I can say first hand that this plane fly's XLNT on a super lite weight setup
Mine was built using micro servos and a Bp Hobbies 2820-6 1000KV motor with Apc 11x7 prop. I run this on a single 2200 40c 3s battery pushed as far forward as possible into the cowling area to balance it.
All I can say is this plane is so fantastic at this weight (51oz AUW)......lighter by 8oz than the lowest advertised flying weight and mine has had it's landing gear revised to a much more heavy duty setup.

I don't mind that it won't pull verticle forever but doing low, fast runway passes terminating in slow victory rolls and huge airshow type loops are fun too. Runtimes are in the 6mn range, landings are slow and sweet with no hint of stall and the tail staying active right up to touch down
