Thanks FishW83! Yes actually a handsome little delta, more easy to handle than i first thought. Probably.. a larger 200% Polaris will be built before summer.

Great video! This is such a fun plane. Looks like you flew it beautifully. Thanks for sharing the video. Any idea what caused the power failure? I know that without adequate cooling, many have experienced an overheated esc resulting in a loss of power. I attached a heat sink to mine. The heat sink protrudes through the top of the fuselage for cooling. It works very well. Many others have incorporated inlet and outlet scoops of various varieties.

Anyway, nice looking plane. Smooth flights. Loved it!

Thank you! Oh yes, so much fun! It was a pleasure to fly it. It feels bigger than it is, also flies very stable for its size. I added KF4 maybe it depends on the KF? It can fly fast and becomes very quickly a small dot in the sky ... For that matter, I wish it were a little bigger. and I think there will be another one, larger scale in the summer, perhaps for FPV. Since I live near the lake, I see this plan as very useful for me. Your video was an inspiration for me, among many others. A plan that all Foamjet lovers definitely should have in their collection. You could start from the grass and snow, actually there is no need for lakes. As you F & S, I love this plane too!

"Any idea what caused the power failure?"

Actually, and fortunately, it was just a bad solder from the ESC to the motor ...
Fortunately, the receiver was never without power. Well as you mention, I added a scoop on top (hard to see on video, a piece of plastic spoon) and an air outlet at the back of the hull as many have suggested. Useful for summer! if it survives until then

I will second that!!! All foam lovers should build the Polaris. It is a fantastic airplane. I am glad you are enjoying it.
