well what can i say 2 good maidens in one day.
the polaris only needed 5 clicks of left trim and goes extremely well.
speed on the grass is fast and hard to keep on the ground. tracks well to.
in the air its super stable and flys hands of with ease. speed is pretty quick and glide is really nice also.
let SAM fly while i filmed and he was starting to high alfa it lol.
so just need to add the rest of the wing tip floats and the nose cone and then the colour scheme.
so would i build another one.........you bet i would. may be 125% next time on a 4s

on a side note on cleaning it i have noticed a fracture on one side of the motor pod about 3mm after the motor mount. don't no if iv done it on building changing the motor or just the stress of the motor pulling on the depron, i will have to keep a eye on it. mine has gone the same as Pete's did on Sunday. mine has had soft landings so will keep checking it.

Good video jeff, I loved hearing your reactions to the flight Its what scratchbuilding is all about m8, you just cant get that buzz with a kit, I know I'm right as its my reason for building.

You've covered most of the build techniques in the polaris jeff, You could easy take on any build you like from now on, Congrats on the plane jeff now go enjoy it even more in the snow.

Dont forget to add some tough tape to the bottom, Since doing mine its been run on tarmac and gravel without a scratch. I'll bring it with me next time we fly and its quick and easy to apply.
If your in range in stockton its available in their. I posted about it on this site.

Jeff the shop is over by the prison in stockton if you've never shopped over there you really need to, its one of my favourite areas to pick up model related stuff.
look for the B&M signs and Range is next door to it.
Dont take the wife you'll never get away from the place.

Nice one jeff, your confidence with the polaris has really gone up, try edging back on the cg a little for the better high alpha moves in slow flight. looks like your a tad nose heavy which is no bad thing usually.
Time to tweak Laughing

well its finished and its turned out really well imo Cool Cool






well just a edit
run it up on watt meter and the figures were impressive.
these little motors are very cheap and make some power.
3cell 2200 25c
30amp esc
2212-2200kv
6x4 prop
290wats@28amps
think they might just become my motor of choice.
