I heard the latest update:
“We are waiting for the factory to return from the Coronavirus break to finalize the Phantasm development. We are close.”

I hope guys can stay on track and not have to drag the carbon line into 2021. And if they decide to do that, Slingshot should make a sleek fuselage for their Hoverglide line (matching current wings/mast/stabilizer) but 3 times lighter and without silly tail shim.

Also they can release several of wings matching “their” 749 surf or rather 647 kite fuselage. I’m talking 800-900 sq.cm wings with swept back LE, to make everyone with Moses/Slingshot carbon set buy it, just like everyone was buying Moses 590 wings all 2018 long for Ghost Whispers.

They also should make universal stabilizer, thin as 330 and about 300 sq.cm area with wingtips pointed up.

These two things will get everyone upgrading and Slingshot will start selling carbon again
