Polaris, FT mini style


Elite member
I have been a big fan of Steve Shumate's designs and decided to try a conversion of his Polaris to DTFB foam. I only had 5g servos and a 2205 old quad motor so I decided to shrink it down a little bit (might not have been enough). I enlarged the pod a bit so it will take a regular FT mini power pod with no thrust angle. The required down thrust is built into the vertical mount for the pod.

Just a little cleanup to do for the rudder servo, magnet for the hatch, and some tape to protect the bottom. No water to fly off so I made life easy and kept the servos external and easily accessible. Also needs a nose.
