You could also see it as a demonstration of good taste and sound judgement. If you are going to steal something, why not steal the best?

Seriously, it's a compliment. It's the best designs that get stolen.

Doesn't make you feel any better though.

I know what you mean. Don't forget the Vaseline!

That seemed to have worked, the listing has ended early!

Yes, believe it or not I sent him a message on EBay and he responded with a respectful and apologetic note. Nice to see!

That's good, I see the listing is listed as "no longer available", I had also reported the second listing. I think Lockey's "Polaricat" would have a better chance of getting away with duping a Polaris for nefarious profits and getting away with it as it does have some "non stock" elements, (the twin pylons), but the one listed was obviously a Polaris in every detail.
You and Model Aero have been very gracious by allowing the plans to be downloaded and used by scratch builders, and that is a great gesture, it's too bad some people take advantage of that generosity. Hopefully this will be the last such rip off, (but I fear it won't be).

Bad second Polaris Flight,,


I had a great launch but got so wound up
The ground launch was sweet,,,,,,,
I went to turn left at about 300 ft up and I lost her..
But for sure I will fix her broken nose and WILL try again..
Over here the weather has been very forgiving..
No wind and 40's 50's It's was a blast anyways..
Want to thank every body for all the help to get this far..
Some photo's to show the owie's caused thru Pilot ERROR
Later,
Lenny

This was explained to me by some one on RC Group some time ago..
And I find it very helpful to find PDF files and Photo's to help with your build or interest of any Rc Group Forum..
Take a look
But very Sorry though,,
I'm a little shaky with the camera,,
but I hope you get my Drift??
Later,
Lenny

As you have pointed out the show attachments function is very valuable for finding photos and PDF's. However it's a shame that there is no way (that I am aware of) to reference the post that any PDF or photo came from.

Well scratch that last statement. I just found that clicking on a picture and then the word "post" under the picture takes you to the appropriate post.

Hey Glenn,
Yep it's a lot easier to shot thru over a 1,000 pages this way and be able to click on the photo or PDF and do your thing..
Some people might just have a little hard time at first but once ya got it..
Easy pickens...lol
Hey peacon what's with the link it won't come up..
Maybe another way to search??
Later guys,
Lenny

You have my sympathies! Always sorry to see that kind of outcome, but glad to hear you're going to put it back together. Even a major rebuild is less work than starting from scratch.
Any thoughts on what went wrong and how to avoid it in future? Was it just an orientation problem when the model got a bit too far away? I know what that's like (having crashed the Aquajet on its first flight in poor seeing conditions).

Ouch Lenny, we've all been there and we feel your pain.
I'm sure you'll get back in the air again soon.

Yes, nothing ever works first time! It's always worth another try!
