Roger Mann is building a new, affordable Ragwing ultralight.


Oct 28, 2022
South Bend, IN
Hi all. Roger Mann, the guy behind Ragwing aircraft, is at it again. He designed and built a lot of ultralights back in the day, and has been away from it for a while; but now he’s working on a new ultralight that should cost under $5k to build, in the post-Covid economy. It is also supposed to be inexpensive to own, with features like folding wings. So far, it’s looking a lot like a Kimbrel Banty mixed with a minimax. I’m planning on either building a Banty or this new design. For those who are interested, Roger is chronicling the build in the following Facebook group: https://m.facebook.com/groups/1191558664731079/
