thanks Avi!
rescue boat is a Hobie inflatable with pedal power, great for fishing to! Folds up and goes in the trunk of the car or on top inflated

Well, I appear to be at a distinct advantage in the weather department so I hope you'all aren't grinding your teeth in the snow belt! Spring will come! Seems it's just here year round.
I found this sugar white groomed beach that I could not pass up!
The Paper Towels stuffed into the Polaris Ultra served me well today cause I've been goofin' off inverted which seems to pour all that saltwater through the cracks

Great stuff. Thanks for the video (as we await windchill tonight approaching -40C/40 below F).

Where next on your itinerary of flyable Florida beaches?

Wow they come in at about 2000 sterling. Very handy tool though.

Love the white sands on your latest video.

Unfortunately there will be no Polaris Ultras at the WRAM show. However, we will have them at the Toledo RC Expo in April.

Ok, so I am ready to replace my aging FPV Aquacat platfoem and think the Ultra will be perfect. I have many fpv planes but the stability and ease of takeoff and landings with the Aquacat makes it one of my favorites. The only things I would change would be to make it a bit more duable and faster. So it seems the Ultra will be perfect.

So, if I order the stock motor and esc, along with the 2 blade prop, I should be able to switch between 3s and 4s with no other concernes?

Thanks

Yes you can switch between 3s and 4s with the stock motor and ESC, but you must prop down from an 8 x 6 (3s) to an 8 x 4 (4s).

We've had one report of the stock motor wires overheating on 4s, so we have decided to rewire all the kits to upgrade the motor wires to 16 gauge. All kits shipped after 1/25/13 have been fitted with 16 gauge wires. For kits shipped before 1/25/13 we recommend sticking with a 3s setup unless you upgrade the wiring.

Additionally, we are pre-installing the rudder push rod and guide tube on all kits. There were a few complaints of interference inside the push rod channel.

Of course you will be offering a free retrofit package to all loyal, Polaris junkies who bought one of the first runs of the Ultra, who also happens to be attending e-fest in two weeks?

Looking forward to seeing you there Scott. So far I have one original kit Polaris, 2 mini-Polaris kits, one of the first XL kits, and the Ultra....still in the box, though.

I luvs me some Polaris flyin'! (not now, though. Cold and nasty weather lately)

Looking forward to E-Fest AeroRecon. I'll fix you up!

I will be sending out an email to all customers offering a free wiring upgrade package with instructions for those who want to rewire. As long as you are running 3s and less than 24 amps I wouldn't bother.

Note that it is much easier to rewire before the wings are glued in.

You may contact me via email at info@modelaero.com for further information.

Model Aero is an example of a company that listens to it's
customers and takes action.
I wish all companies were as responsive.

Good for you Model Aero.
