GRYPHON bench flight

. . . . . . . .
 

Early video of the revived Gryphon build prior to covering. This is a very neat scratch build. It has some interesting build set-ups on getting the wing lined up for proper dihedral. There are a set of predetermined  length leading edge set-up blocks that make it all happen on the bench. The trailing edge is also interesting on how it is properly angled and lined up to the airfoil chord line. By the way this has always been a "french curve" symmetrical airfoil design. No official airfoil call out but a shape that works really nice for all manner of aerobatics. Laser parts version is soon to be released.
