Latest vid for those who enjoy them. Polaris Ultra cruising around a winter wonderland. Three feet of snow and six foot drifts. Perfect for the Polaris.

Which one? Last tree? Unfortunately I do not have it. Video link cuts off about 5 seconds before tree contact, mobuis disintegrated on impact. SD card was in but empty. Mobius does not power up anymore ;(
Zippy compact 5000mAh turned into the shape of a pear - it become shorter by an inch. Surprisingly EC5 plug did not disconnect and it was powering the model when I found it. I would expect it flame out but it did not. May be they did not put lithium in it

I had a 52" grim reaper wing from Crash test hobby that had survived at least 100 plus crashes. Late last year I tried an orange R615X on it and the receiver cut out in the middle of a power dive. The wing bounced 15 feet into the air after it hit the ground and the motor bell and prop flew off into the weeds and was never found. The battery a 4000 MAH 40C was shaped into a U but it never caught fire. I had to retire that receiver, the wing and the battery after that.

The same thing happened to a friend of mine with an identical receiver we bought at the same time, so we got rid of those receivers after that.

Offtop!!!

Back on top ... it did not need to die. it was more like a bush it was caught in. Anyways, lasted for me about 40 flights and 3 crashes. 2 video link loss and one take off with one aileron disconnected were the readons for sub optimal landing approach. PU did good in crashes mainly due to detachable wings on mine. But when nose hits thee trunk it cant be saved.

Sorry to see the demise of your Polaris Ultra. You had a ton of flights with the plane!

Two years and two very full winters of Polaris Ultra. Great, great plane. Who knows, if there's a Polaris Ultra V.2 in the future.....

Cheers.
