both!!! both have there own flying charicteristic

drongo is a more
"yank and bank" type of plane cuz its elevon control and very limited on things you can do but she flys like almost any wing type plane fun

Polaris is a great "all weather and ground" type of plane that can do anything and everything
land n take off on grass, concrete,ice,snow,water,mud and a VERY stable flier.
many get mess up flying the polaris cuz the do the controls too high so it become VERY twitchy. so when setting up make sure to dail it down and add expo to have a nice flying polaris.

drongo is MUCH easier to buld whele the polaris has many more parts, example, it take me about 6 hour to make a polaris and it took me 2 hour to make the drongo

i say build both!!!!! you have fun!!! really
hope that helps rich

made another mini drongo for a field member, it was a big hit there!!!
this time i foam tac the canopy also like Eric did on his battery hatch, GREAT idea Eric!!!!


also, the polaris and drongo i build last week , the foam tac hinge was made with taping up the surface and using a credit card and squeeze out the extra

this time i run a bead on the top part of the 45 degree cut on both the wing and airlions then touch them together then pull them apart for a min then reattch it and wipe off exceese glue on top, 10-15 min later it was nice and tight!!! and move very freely

Foam Tac

Hey Petey, They call me "The Deacon of Beacon" because I work for the company and I like to build, but you are Foam-Tacstic!!!!!!! not only do you build fast, but you also do beautiful work. You are the "Polaris Prince" the "Duke of Drongo" the "Depron Don", just amazing what you do, I love it, keep them coming.
