Behind The Scenes

Mantis FPV was born during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown period. This will be a year EVERYBODY will remember. It is a year that we all said “lets get to 2021 already!”. Proof that ideas brew when you’re bored out of your skull during a lockdown. Maybe we should have more of it to solve our planetary problems.

Here, we shall share with you the journey we’ve taken to where we are now.

Kelvin & Adriano.

27th July 2020

Starting a new hobby/sport/interest isn’t easy. Lord Bardwell can only do so much (and he does plenty). We find many of our customers need a personal touch towards getting guidance. Simply register your interest, and we’ll try our best to connect you with an FPV mentor nearby.

First BLOG written

13th July 2020

Gotta cherish the firsts! We’ve never been into BLOGs. I guess we are now! Check it out here.

First shirts made!

19th June 2020

The little things count. Like printing shirts! In a business where most things comes from China, it is rather refreshing to be able to do things locally. Shout out to our buddies at Teamkit Australia.

Website launched without a hitch, midnight of 13th June 2020. All ducks were lined up. It was rather event-less actually. Then we went to bed.

MFPV Website Concepts

Branding Design

4th May 2020

Our buddies at Get Noticed Media got cracking with our concept behind the Peacock Mantis Shrimp (or should we be calling it a “prawn” in Australia?). Anthony delivered us a cracking brand for MantisFPV.

Building in silence

2 May 2020

Many many many many hours of building a new and fast e-commerce website, that runs very efficiently and just blazingly fast. Kelvin got obsessed with making sure the website loads in under 1 second. He is proud to say, he now measures load times in miliseconds. For the keen eyed (footer reference), no – the server doesn’t really run on Raspberry Pi, nor is it powered by 2x CR2023s. However, it does run on Linux on our custom cloud servers, hosted at the fastest datacentre in Australia. We can’t really tell you where it is of course.

With the special help of Martin and Zac, Adriano smashed through the creation of products online. Again, many hundred hours dispensed without a roster. It was just full steam. Made with love.

Special mention to Paul L, our FPV shifu, telling us what to stock. We pretty much did the opposite to what he said most the time thereafter.

30th April 2020

All those mundane but essential things, done. Amazingly, this was done within the span of 3 hours. We’re that good. Infact, it might’ve taken us longer to think of this subheading than the actual doing.
