LITTLE CLOUD GYPS

The original idea was to combine all the LittleCloud knowledge and its philosophy into developing a high performance wing. The Gyps is dedicated to experienced pilots looking to fly far and long with a real fun handling. Even though she’s pretty accessible, we’ve aimed it toward pilots who are able to deal with a 7 aspect ratio glider. The Glider is a pure 3 liner with only 61 cells in order to control the final weight. Thanks to the advanced shaping, we were able to reduce span parasitic movement to a very small amount. The Gyps is stiff enough to not deform, but the low amount of sail tension also prevents collapses from spreading along the span. The Gyps is not very dynamic when recovering from collapses. She’s featuring a very bitey but pitch stable profile, just like on the Goose.
