Manta-Fledgling
 
A 1974 hang glider for advanced pilots. Some of the greatest characteristics of the Fledge was the ability to penetrate high winds. It was always fun to spin.
 
Manta-Fledge-01
Fledge 2
 
The Fledge 2 was a 1980 hang glider.
 
The Fledging IIB was motorized to give the Pterodactyl Fledging, one of the first ULM.
 
The 1983 Fledge 3 was nasty in a spin when the center of drag (the Fledge) traded places with the center of mass (the pilot). Next thing, flying upside down at 1 negative G. Some say it was an absolute bitch to rig and weighed a ton and ground handling was terrible, trying to get used to yaw induced roll.
