Everyone on the waiting list will receive an email before the end of the day with purchase details. The kits will not be on our website for a day or two.

Can't wait to see you guy's getting your hands on the Ultra kit and hearing more about it. Had a good look at the manual, looks very good. That main hatch/canopy is a very nice touch and there looks to be some very clever design features. The tail section aught to be pretty tough with that ply running up the centre. Hope you get some supply arranged for us over here Scott.

Here's a video of the Polaris Ultra. Sorry for the poor quality. But it will give you an idea of how she flies.

It looks and flies like a Polaris! Hahaha

I like the plastic underbelly, seems like a very good idea.

Thanks Tim.

A lot of you may not know Tim Wan. Tim's company, RC Lander Technology, is the company I chose to produce the Polaris Ultra. I have known Tim for many years, and we use their high quality EDF units in our Aqua Jet. Tim really cares about his products and customers, and without him this project probably never would have happened.

On another note, I've started a new thread for the Polaris Ultra over in Foamy-Kits.

That will be more specific to a fully molded Polaris "kit"... But the Polaris flat kit you sell was a kit also was it not?

Just sayin' . Not to be a instigator
