I had one rotting in my drive for a while but i've just put it in the skip!

Granted it was a slightly cheaper copy, but very dangerous toy!

Flew about 30ft up directly above the boat then dive bombed!

Good fun for the day, but no one wanted a second go

manta

one of the best toys i have ever towed. had my mate 50ft up at 60+mph. he could really fly it though. his name might give it away DAMION . he may well want to sell it as we played with it about 3 or 4 times and board with it now..... ill give him a call..
