Wasp Gryphon
 
 Wasp-Gryp-04
 
The 1979 Gryphon was for advanced pilots.
 
The Gryphon B bowsprit glider was apparently designed by Miles Handley (UK).
 
Wasp-Gryp-02
Gryphon B
 
Wasp compensated for the lack of maneuverability with a slight reverse dihedral, hence a spiral instability always tiring to counter, and sometimes dangerous. The mania could be substantially improved by causing the cables controlling the deflection to communicate towards the rear of the leading edges. She became the queen of the lazy 8 thanks to her kinetic energy. Wing very sensitive to the profile of the slats.
 
Wasp-Gryp-03
