Fanis,
Why do cats just sit on paper, especially our plans? Your Mantis looks good , let us know how it flies? I d like your pilot by the way

Maiden of MANDIS.

Rich thank's once again for your plans and your effort in to making them.
Mantis is a real good floater , the plans are very distinctly,and VERY easy to build.
the autogyro can stand a lot of punishment and gave me a lot of fun
I am very pleased...
I have two short videos but my cameraman (my daughter) is not used to.
Rich my cat is a very clever and so he can understand which plans are the best and he protects them
yours, friendly
Fanis

Μπράβο Φάνης μεγάλη κατασκευή και πτήση κόρη σας έκανε καλά videoing είναι πολύ δύσκολο.
Καλό είναι να τεθεί ένα πρόσωπο σε ένα όνομα

Hello to all of you ,thanks for your nice comments .
Joe I have seen an improvement to your Greeks,so when you will come to Corfu don't hesitate come to Kalamata it's close by we have a entire air port all ours.my email is: F.FANISS@gmail.com
Chris ,I have seen a lot of your nice videos especially I like the one you show us how easy the Mantis can hand launched .
Steve,I am 1,85 meters about 93 kilos and only 35 years old : I hope these can help you
The next step is to enlarge it a little bit because I think that the 6 mm of balsa is not so "strong", for me being a little clumsy,and I will replace it with 6 mm of hardwood (thats why I think to enlarge it a little) I am talking about the tale. In addition the stab has to be secured because mine (when it flies is not any more horizontal.
happy landings
Friendly yours
Fanis
