Plans for the Manta

All I've done so far is copy the templates onto graph paper and scan them in (more time consuming than you think!) but if your that keen the scanned images are here until I get them drawn up properly.

Manta (and Stingray) 1 of 8

Manta (and Stingray) 3 of 8
Manta (and Stingray) 4 of 8
Manta (and Stingray) 5 of 8
Manta (and Stingray) 6 of 8
Manta (and Stingray) 7 of 8
Manta (and Stingray) 8 of 8

Or... all joined in one huge file (right click and save-as)


Before you rush out to invest a small fortune in ripstop and carbon you should be aware that this kite was designed quite a while ago before the rise in popularity of French style, pitch happy kites. While it does backspin and roll-up with some weight on it was an experiment based on an older kite. Do not build this kite if you want something to roll-up super fast or spank around hard and fast.
