Ken, I received the Polaris foam yesterday. Thanks
Not sure what some of the 3D printed parts are though. Is the build guide in RCGroups somewhere?

I'm up for it. Does Romeo Cafe sound good? What time should we meet? Mike is the aerodrome ready for us?

aerodrome ready, Airnet shows winds low until about noon when they rise to over 10, no rain, partly cloudy. Probably want to hit Cafe early like 8?

Hi Joe,
Sorry I've not gotten back to you. Been very busy and not on RCG lately. Glad the kits arrived.

The flat trapezoidal plate with a slot is the reinforcement for the base of the vertical fin.

I don't have a build guide, but I do remember creating an image with part names in the sheet.

I was quite happy with the 3D printed parts, especially the nose and wingtip floats.

Joe and Ken, have you been following the goings on in the official Polaris thread? Interesting actions, apparently ModelAero has quit and Bob Neitzke is taking over the official Polaris kits.
