No more Mongo?
I appologize if this has been covered already. I was flying my FMA Razor today and I was thinking how cool a really big one would be. I was intrigued buy the 16 footer the university was making(I recently saw a video on the Northrop fly wing too). I remember Greg Covey made one so I looked at his site. It was a cool as I remembered. I clicked the link to Mongo(the maker of huge flying wings). They say they don't make them anymore
So does anybody else make a big foam wing? I am ordering one of those new Viper Twins, but that is only 55".
Any other suppliers?
PS GREG: have you been flying yours? The Ezone review leaves off ofter the maiden flight. Was it worth it?

Mike , I've got a Mother Ship flying wing from Flyingfoam.com that is 83". It is sold as a glider and it is a great flyer that way but I mounted a Jeti 45/3 with a 10x7 3 bladed prop and 14/ 3000 nihm cells , it weighs 5.5 # without payload ,lots of power to spare. Someday I may learn how to post photos.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, it still flies better than ever since I added some taper in the elevons. I flew it at several local shows this Summer and may soon upgrade the P450 Turbos to MMRs.
Good old Bash Enterprises has called it quits I'm afraid. An almost identicle design can be found at Flying Foam called the "Mother Ship. It is a bit larger and heavier, almost 7' compared the my Mongo Jr at 6'.
It sounds like Earl has a brushless motor in his instead of twin motors. I would love to see some photos!

Ha, ha, saw the Mega Manta fly at Visalia. Not quite as fast as the Zagis as I recall, but it can fly through a dogfight with impunity. A pretty cool plane. – not as cool as a Wedgie though
