Mini IFO Reports
Sent by Our Mini IFO Fan

"I have had my Mini IFO for 5 years now, and while I was flying it the other day, I realized that I haven't yet offered you guys a complement for the idea and it's development into the awesome plane that it is. The Mini IFO is one of my more treasured aircraft in my fleet, and the longest surviving / oldest. With dozens of hours on it, I only have slight tears in the rip-stop at blunt rub points from landing inverted, a small kink where I snagged barb wire, and that's it. It is truly a cool flying machine , and it's construction techniques have taught me a lot, which has influenced the construction of some of my other planes. It has won me lots of 'Wow's at talents shows and strange looks from passers by, and my flying buddies all want one (not to boast). Anyhow, it will probably stick around another 5 years. Again, thank you. Clear Skies,"
