bit the bullet and built a Polaris... along with thousands of other happy foamy scratch builders....

i think mine features on page 1317 of the thread now nearing 2 million hits

gave it a little coat of "looking at" and made it my own....

quick video of my second flight with it... test flight was similar but video quality better on flight 2

built this one about a year ago and has given me hours of fun...

buried in "pusher prop jet models" it just doesn't get the hits it deserves..

a Cracking model for the experienced pilot... faster than a fast thing tied up in fast string... its a peach of a design and tracks as true as a Dart....

here's my own design called the Wot-Next..

its a "second model" ideal for someone who has learned the basics on a Rudder/Elevator/Throttle high wing trainer and wants to try out an Aileron model.. with the control throws reduced it is very forgiving, and due to the shape and design of the simple plank wing it is very very stable and almost impossible to stall. it flies round on a wiff of throttle which all helps the novice pilot get the hang of it.

however it has a very broad flight envelope from docile to just plain crazy depending on how you set it up so experienced pilots will have a ball too

"WOT NEXT" a 34" span own design aeileron trainer/sport rc depron model (3 min 26 sec)

with twin aileron servos and flaperons...
