The ASH-26 manufactured by Schleicher, is a high performance open class (18 m) glider. We at ICARE are very proud to offer here a (1:3) super-scale reproduction of this very high performance glider.

Never flown such large glider, you will get the ultimate soaring experience with this high performance glider and be surprised how docile this glider is in the air, a real performer. It will allow you to explore all the soaring capability, from smooth graceful thermalling to the taste of light aerobatics. Its outstanding behavior makes it a great candidate to amazing distances for scale cross country flying. Again: ultimate soaring!

This glider comes completely built, and ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you go to the field. The sheeted foam wings are glass and carbon reinforced and already covered with Oracover. Wings are coming with two sets of molded wingtips. Airbrakes are installed and ready to be connected by the mean of a mini servo. Ailerons and flaps are hinged ready to hook up. The high gloss, gel coated Fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes, the rudder and elevator installed. The cockpit comes with all main components like the instrument mushrooms, seats, head rests done, it is the most detailed cockpit ever made. Canopy opens to the front like the full size. Landing retractable wheel comes with brakes are installed and ready to work, like the tow release. A small package hardware and short building instructions are completing the kit. If you would like to venture into large scale gliders this ASH-26 is a must!

In the case of special wish there are installed water balasts, 2 x 1,25 l out put radio controlled, in moulded version only.

Landing gear with brake are detailed. Cockpit with stuffing and painting instrument panel. Landing retractable wheel comes with brakes are installed and ready to work, like the tow release. A small package hardware and short building instructions are completing the kit.

We of course also offer the self launchable ASH-26M, it will come with either the 18" unit standard or optionally with the 20-22" unit and will require 24-30 cells. It will take off the ground with ease and give you at least three full height launches.

 

Radio requirements are two micro servos for the ailerons, two for the flaps and two additional micro servos for the airbrakes. Four regular servos for the elevator, rudder and retract. Additional servos might be installed for aerotow and water ballast.
