The Staufenbiel Mantis is a high performance glider with V-tail, flapsand an HQ-airfoil. When developing the Mantis our main goal was to make it a perfectglider mainly for thermal flights. The very stiff double V-shaped winggives the Mantis best circling flight performance. Light aerobatics areno problem also due to the stiff abachi sheeted wings.
The Mantis comes with a quality fuselage which is painted in the mold.It is reinforced with carbon fiber reinforcement on high stressed partslike the canopy frame. The cooling in- and outtakes are ensuring thatthe electronics don’t get too hot. The wings are styro/abachi construction covered with genuine ORACOVER.The design of the covering is chosen to give best visibility in the sky.
The combination of the airfoil, the V-Tail and the flaps make theMANTIS a perfect thermal glider.
You can get the MANTIS as ARF version as well as a PNP version. Bothversions have a high degree of prefabrication and are quickly built dueto the detailed manual. The PNP version comes with an already built-inDYMOND GTX-3546/910 kV motor as well as six built-in and wired DYMOND D260 metal geared Servos, ready installed cable beams withMPX-connectors and Multilock wing lock system. Also included in the PNPversion is a Reisenauer spinner and an Aeronaut 13x6,5 folding prop.
