Thumbs up

Hey, hey, long time no talk! I sadly left the Mantis out of the stable also, but it's not too far away I was really looking to make it brushless, but funds were low and projects are a plenty. Did you make the motor mount or did you send the Mantis somewhere to get it sized up? Looks good, it should be a killer!
