I've been flying this plane for about a week now & its been a lot of fun. It also seems to be generating quite a buzz with my club mates. I know a few have ordered one after watching me fly mine. Anyway here's a video I made...

Nice Vid Chris !

Now I have another plane to put on my list. Looks equally as good as the Polaris. The closest I've come to something like it was my scratchbuilt Sea Dart.

Cheers,

Hawk

Thank you Hawk. Hmmm maybe I need to try sticking water skis on her like the Sea Dart *grin*

Default HK Skipper - good copy plane

Nice video Nodd!
With the Skipper, HobbyKing has done an obvious Polaris clone -but a good one. Joysway, also an Asian-based company I believe, has a copy called The Dragonfly.
Like you, I removed H-Ks decals from my Skipper. I then placed a badge on a wing which reads, "Thanks to the real designers: Laddie M. and Steve S.

Thanks

That's cool you gave credit to the original designers. I agree this is a good clone of the Polaris, flies quite nicely. Speaking of those evil Hobby King decals, here's part three of my Skipper video series...
