Model Aero is very excited to bring you the Polaris seaplane parkflyer! This model, conceived by noted designer Steve Shumate, is a parkflyer adaptation of Laddie Mikulasko’s beautiful North Star seaplane. Constructed of laser cut 6 mm Depron foam, the 29″ wingspan Polaris features excellent handling qualities, both in the air and on the water. In flight, the model is smooth, majestic, and stable, yet also very aerobatic.
The versatile Polaris takes off and lands effortlessly on water, grass, or even snow, and it possesses an amazing speed range—with the recommended power setup the top speed approaches 70 mph, yet the model slows down well and can plop down into the water at high alpha under full control at less than 10 mph. The low wing loading ensures very docile flying qualities.
The kit includes all laser cut 6 mm Depron foam, carbon fiber spars, pushrods and control horns, motor mount, and detailed construction guide on CD. The plane builds easily in a few evenings and is suitable for anyone with intermediate flying skills.
Whether flying off water or grass, the Polaris will be one of the most rewarding projects in your hanger!
