I finally got to see a Polaris fly today - Dick Weaver had one at the "New Years' Day" fun fly out at Flaming Geyser park (the meet was postponed to today due to weather).

I couldn't watch in much because I was also flying at the time, but what I saw was impressive. It certainly handled the grass field better than my small planes did. It got up and went when he asked it to and had a rather insane roll rate. My robbe Gemini is like that, too....

So when are you gonna build one, Bernard? If you don't have Polarisitis yet, you will soon...

Well, I had five kits on my Christmas "wish list" including the Polaris. I got two of them (SA Helium MG and FredE), but not the Polaris.

From a practical standpoint I have to thin the fleet quite a bit in order to make room for any new planes. One of the things that surprised me was that the Polaris is a bit bigger than I thought. I didn't get to ask Dick if his was the regular size or a scale-up. (He does build those Gemini-inspired flying W planes in a number of sizes).

At the moment I can't really answer the "when" question, but I have a low-grade version of the disease already.

I never go to the flying field with out mine. Long time modelers watch it fly and say ," It doesn't look like it would fly that well"

Ahoy Captain, any chance of sharing the rudder mix with a newbie. I am fascinated by the promise of what mixes can achieve but have no real idea where to start.
