The ASW-28 is a nice semi-scale
reproduction of the T-tail glider produced by the German company A. Schleicher,
Flugzeugbau, currently in production. It is the constant evolution of the ASW series and
is the new standard class glider. Improvements are triple taper leading edge and high
aspect ratio winglets. This model is best suited for slope flying, but will do well on a
good thermal day. Due to its high aspect ratio, the ASW-28 will cover a lot of ground, but
due to it's low wing loading, it has very smooth handling. Building and flying require
some skill, thus the designation for intermediate pilot.
The ASW-27 has a slightly different
shorter winglets. Fuselage is the same.
The kit comes completely finished. The
wings are hollow core moulded and the ailerons are cut-out. The winglets are
wing. The clear plastic canopy is fitted to the Fiberglas tray, wing joiner system is
installed in the fuselage. All what's required is your radio gear. You will need 4
sub-micro servos and a small 4 channel receiver.
