Gryphon Slope Flying wing


Hi Guys,
OK this is a Gryphon Flying wing that I am working on, has a 72" wingspan. Will be a very cool slope soaring flying wing! MY good friend Jan framed it up, now I will finish it! I want to add some cool winglets.for it.

I just picked up something very similar from a guy on Craigslist. They one I've got has a sliding servo tray and full span ailerons, right out to the tips. Span about 68 inches. Nice clean build. Does anyone know if the Gyphon was unique, or was there a very similar model out there back in the day?

I have never had a model of this type. I don't know how to go about it.

Should I find giant servos and fit them to the slider? Or install modern servos?

How is launched?

If it was me I would install New Hitec servos like HS-125 MG They are wing servo's installed in the wing not the fuselage. I am going to find the link to the build so you can see what I am talking about! That will make it a lot easier to understand!
