I hung up the Z Wasp in favor of the Lat64 Pain. Better disc overall. More stable and consistent flights. I like the Wasp OK, but it wasn't stable enough. Would flip at random times. I already have a Buzz in the bag, so the Wasp had to go.

What kind of robot arm are you throwing with? Z Wasps (170g+) are very stable flyers. Aside from hurricane type conditions, I couldn't imagine flipping a Z Wasp.

Maybe he had a domey one. The dome on the Z Wasp I had a couple of years ago made it turn in a headwind worse than my Z Buzzz. Both my TI Wasps are very flat.

My flat Z Wasps will wiggle a little into a strong headwind, but that's all.

All my thrower Wasps are either old shaky Z pearlies or FR raspberry Ti, and none of them have any high speed turn. The one domey circle stamp Z I tried was beefier than the rest. More Drone than Wasp. Kind of weird to hear people mention theirs having turn.

I bag a 2015 Ledgestone ESP Wasp and have two backups. All three are really nice, board flat and fairly firm.
