The ASH-25 manufactured by
Schleicher, is a high performance two seater open class (25-26m) glider
and has first flown in 1986 and within a couple of years had set
five world speed records for triangular courses varying from 330 km./
205.1 miles to 1,380 km/ 857.0 miles.
The ASH-25 is the production version of the prototype two seater
ASW-22-2, using a fuselage adapted from the Akaflieg Stuttgart FS-31.
The ASH-25 Mi is now powered by a retractable 41 kW/ 55 bhp Diamond
Aircraft fuel injected rotary engine.
Now, we at ICARE
are very proud to offer here this (1:3.75) super-scaleTM reproduction of
this high end performance
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, an outstanding performer. It will allow you to explore all the soaring capability, from smooth graceful thermalling to the taste of
speed and light aerobatics. Its smooth behaviour 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 hollow moulded wings is in three pieces each side and is fully glass and
carbon reinforced and white painted in the mould. Wings are coming with two sets of moulded wingtips
to accommodate both wing spans. 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 scale detailing of
this model is truly outstanding. The
wing roots form a gentle curve as per the original to perfectly match the
fuselage. The super strong wing
joiner system is made up of two interlocking spar extensions that attach to a
bulkhead in the fuselage with a single pin, just like the full-scale
counterpart. The dual cockpit
features the complex opening mechanism, like full size. Interior
is fully detailed with all main components like the instrument mushrooms,
seats, head rests, seat belts and even a flight map, it is the most detailed cockpit ever made.
Landing retractable wheel comes with brakes
is 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-25 is a must!
Cockpit sun cover
We of course also offer the self
launchable ASH-25Mi, it will come with either the 16" unit standard
or optionally with the 18" unit and will require 24-30 cells (8-10

take off the ground with ease and give you at least three full height
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
