Howdy! Is the wonderful product called "Wing Thing" extinct? Is it one of those dinosaurs from a past era? I often grapple with the uncomfortable task of fumbling with my NexStar hand controller. The Wing Thing mount was a perfect solution that created a convenient home for the controller! Does "Wing Thing" still exist? Can I buy three? Cheers!
Is "Wing Thing" extinct?

Dave adhesive-backed Velcro is a convenient solution... I slapped pieces in various strategic places on mount and tripod - even on the back of the scope, plus the "hooks" piece on the back of the handset. Slap the handset anywhere and it stays put.

I couldn't fin the wing thing, or even the JMI version in stock. I went the route of the Steelie magnetic phone mount. Holds my hand control where I can see it and another one to hold the battery on the side.

If you have a 3D Printer, there's a great holder to be found there...

That's the one I have as well. I made some modifications to it though, adding a power distribution box, a battery holder, a battery meter, and a plug in box for my home made electronic focuser.
