Energic Speedpulse

Started build on the Energic from speedpulse. It came late and missed last slope season , so getting it ready for this season. Its able to float in light wind and go fast when pushed. Its available in both glider and electric version. Kit quality by Jan Stonavsky is superb, fit and finish is one of the best out there.

Some build pics. 

Kit comes complete with all hardware
