Alexander Schleicher latest high performance glider. The
ASW-24 is the standard (no flaps) and the ASW-27 the open class
version (with flaps). ICARE offers here a (1:3.75)
scale reproduction of each, as an easy step into large scale glider.
This model is excellent for aerotowing, and great for
thermalling, as it has very slow flying ability. Stall is smooth and predictable. Able to
make stable turns without tip stalling. If you have access to a slope that permits you to
fly this glider, the flapped HQ airfoil gives you a very wide speed range with amazing
energy retention. You may even afford aerobatics.
This is not a kit, the model comes completely built, and
ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you go to the field.
The wings are sheeted foam, with carbon and glass reinforcement. Completely finished,
covered, hinged and with Teck spoilers installed. The ASW-27 has additional
high gloss, gelcoated Fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes and control
linkage installed. Tail surfaces are finished. A package of small hardware and a building
instruction are completing the kit.
An all molded version of each type is also
available. Hollow molded wings, giving an accurate replica of the full size
glider. Clean and accurate airfoil will also lead to great performance
Radio requirements are two micro servos for the ailerons
and two additional micro servos for the flaps on the ASW-27, three regular servos for the
elevator, rudder and airbrakes. An additional servo might be installed for
