MHL no longer making spare parts for pre-2017

Looks like they moved into a single fus wing unit and are not supporting older foils...

I have been successfully casting alum fuselages. Around these parts guys have broken their fuses and have been looking for replacements....
Considering making these spare fuses....think there is a market for these?

I still ride the 2015 osprey. It is a pretty bomber foil. Personally I think it was a mistake to make the foil/fuselage one piece. It really limits you if you travel or at a minimum forces you to find an appropriate bag to put the wing fuselage unit in. If my current foil breaks, I likely will look for a similar alternative that you can completely break down for travelling. I would not likely try and replace the carbon/kevlar pieces with aluminum.
