I'm Rick James Maidens his Manta at last...

I did not see a thread anywhere, and I hate to steal his thunder.. but here is Seans much anticipated maiden of his scratch built manta..
These pics that I took are actually the second flight, where he stuck a 1/4 oz of lead on the tail... the elevator was sluggish on his first flight, seemed nose heavy.. it also skidded in the turns... could be those tiny wingtips, or could be the CG... for a 70 oz'er it landed very slow... it was great to be there for the maiden...

Hey, no sweat that you beat me to the punch Beedee!! I'm just glad you were both there to help me out and get me flying the proper way at Fermin.

Here's a few pics that I have. A few out of focus too. Dunno why.
