Out of curiosity, I just did a bit of research:

Agree with Flying - wings on Flightless are obviously much shorter, and bill would be a bit heavier and, at least on a near-adult/adult male, brighter all the way to the tip.

Other independent guides such as Beny Wilson or Euclides Campo could probably set you up on a more modest budget. Both are great guys and great guides, btw.
