Polaris Ultra PNP Q&A
Q: What exactly is PNP?
A: PNP stands for Plug & Play. The motor, servos, ESC, and pushrods are all pre-installed. Model Aero inspects and powers up every kit to ensure the components are working correctly.
Q: What is included in the kit?
A: Besides the airframe, the kit includes motor, 40 amp ESC, 3 servos (all installed). Prop is not included and needs to be ordered separately.
Q: Are the components the same as those ordered with the regular kit?
A: No, the components in the PNP version are supplied by the manufacturer. The motor is nearly identical. The ESC has limited programming options but is 2-4 cell capable (auto detect). The servos are 9 gram plastic gear.
Q: How long does the PNP version take to build?
A: Build time is very quick, typically 2-3 hours.
Q: What kind of warranty is there on the electronics?
A: We power up and test every motor , ESC, and servos and guarantee them to be in working order when the kit is received. Due to the harsh nature of float flying that is the extent of the warranty.
Note: Due to the large size of the Polaris Ultra box, USPS Parcel Post is the shipping method. This typically takes 2-9 days.
Model Aero is very excited to offer our newest product, the Polaris Ultra. Based on Laddie Mikulasko’s legendary North Star design, this is an ARF version of the Polaris scaled to 115% of Steve Shumate’s original design. It’s molded of high quality EPO foam and due to the high level of pre-fabrication can be built in a fraction of the time of the original Polaris kit.
The Polaris Ultra retains all of the flying qualities of the original Polaris, yet has a character all her own. I hope you enjoy flying her as much as we’ve enjoyed the development process.
