Wasp-SuperWasp
 
The Super Wasp is a very stable, slow flying glider that is ideal for general flying and soaring. It has a low sink rate, a glide ratio of over 6-1 and forgiving handling charastics for all classes of pilots. Its stability is achieved by use of a vertical and horizontal stabiliser attached to the rear of the keel and the flying wires.
 
It has an adjustable billow that can be set at 3°, 3.5° and 4° for advanced, intermediate or beginning pilots respectively. Has safety lines to prevent the plot from hitting the keel with his head in a rough landing.
 
The airframe is made from 6061-T6 1.5in x 0.049 anodised aluminium. The kingpost and control bar are 6061-T6 1in x 0.083.
Rigging is 3/32in 7 x 7 vinyl coated stainless steel. All hardware is aircraft quality and the sail is 3.8oz stabilised dacron. The pilot support was seated or prone harness.
