Pipsquirter 1 is a period-6 pipsquirter that was found in November 1997 by Noam Elkies. It features a block acting as an induction coil and its phases have 50, 50, 53, 50, 52, and 53 cells, respectively.

Synthesis

Martin Grant found a 276-glider synthesis of pipsquirter 1 on March 17, 2016.[1]

As a reflector

Pipsquirter 1 has the ability to act as a 90-degree glider reflector when it is combined with a block, boat and eater 1. The input path (in green) and output path (in red) of the glider are shown below.
