@ Grohl:  That fellow only has created ONE alternate for the 8271 set, while you have (now) created 29!  :thumbup:  I included your latest alternate (the Chopper) in the (now) 259-page PDF document containing all of your alternates here.  The file size has now been reduced using Adobe Acrobat Pro's utility.

If you want, you can join me on Facebook here http://www.facebook....107287526029770 I made this profile to let people that like my MOCs know what I build and to see some work in progress photos which I never post on forums.

@ Grohl:  You make the coolest designs!  Good thing that those "egg-beater" blades didn't slit your wrists!   :tongue:    The Manta's pictures on your Brickshelf gallery shows its many excellent features well.   :thumbup:

It was sent with the picture of version 1.0. This is slightly improved version not only in design.

They did not, but they nearly cut my index finger off.  :laugh: I was surprised how it hurt when I accidentally crossed the way of both rotors.

Thank you all and especially the Technic Bricks admins for choosing Manta as the week video couple of days ago.

I am working on the instructions for Manta right now while having a rest from building my new RC car. It is going to be faster and lighter than Bluetongue but similar in size. It uses 1 XL motor for the RWD with differential and 1 M motor for return-to-center steering. WIP picture available on my Facebook page.

I have compiled all of Grohl's JPG images (on his Brickshelf gallery) into one, easy-to-handle PDF file that you can download here via SkyDrive.  The 9.9-MB Building Instructions has all the pages numbered, and is easy to navigate.  

Thanks to Grohl/ Grohl666 for making another of his creations available to others!   :classic:

@ Grohl:  Your new Barracuda is excellent!   :thumbup: :thumbup:  For a car that uses a Power Functions XL motor for propulsion, it is VERY FAST.

Once again, you prove that you have a very good understanding of what can be done with a given inventory.  :thumbup:

You scraper is way more nice, playable, fun, and original than the official B-model.

Bravo :)
