    What is your opinion of this product? My wife and I bought one after losing my original Hunter Brown & Paul Debakker custom made manta. Nicole O'Neal customized the new one with "C & S 1966" like the original. The new kite flies as well as our original. Paul DeBakker said I can fly it in stronger winds (up to about 14 mph) with the stronger spreader I bought for my original. You can fly this kite indoors.
    Manta is a great addition to the range of low-wind kites

    What is your opinion of this product? Manta is a great addition to the range of low-wind kites. Unlike most, it has sufficient size to be really noticeable. It needs to be treated with respect, as something this big made from such lightweight materials could be a little vulnerable to damage, but I foresee no problems if you stick to the suggested wind range. \ \ The kite flies very well, although it does have a tendency to overfly sometimes (go beyond the vertical and end up behind the flier.) This could probably be corrected by the addition of a fuzzy tail, but I am reluctant to spoil the look of the kite. \ \ If you are flying near its maximum range, don't try reeling in the Manta quickly when you've finished flying, as that adds to apparent wind-speed and puts extra strain on the kite. Instead, walk towards the kite as you reel in slowly, and that way you will have no problems. \ \ To see the kite in action, you can view my YouTube video on http://youtu.be/iXtLqp1xb-Y .
