Model Aero is adding to their popular Polaris family with the new Polaris EX seaplane parkflyer. The Model Aero Polaris is the kit version of a Steve Shumate design , originally inspired by Laddie Mikulasko’s North Star seaplane.
The Polaris EX features a new level of power system flexibility. This model can be built as a either a prop powered plane or as an EDF that utilizes the new RC Lander 10 bladed 68 mm EDF power system. And for those pilots who cannot make up their mind, it is possible to swap back and forth between the two in less than ten minutes! The Polaris EX performs equally well on both power systems but jet jockeys may prefer the incredible sound of the new Lander lightweight electric ducted fan. An AUW of approximately 28 ounces gives the the EDF version exceptional performance! This Model Aero kit features laser cut sheet foam construction and includes all required hardware. Twin tail booms add strength and stability and help make the EX the best flying Polaris ever!
