ASW-28 is a nice 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 superseding the ASW-24. Improvements are triple taper leading edge and high aspect ratio
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 a highly prefabricated kit, the model comes
fully moulded, and
ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you go to the field.
The wings are hollow moulded, with carbon and glass reinforcement. With a high
gloss surface finish and control surface pre-cut and live hinged. It features
flaps and ailerons control. Standard
airbrakes are already installed. The winglets are hollow moulded Fiberglas. The high gloss, gelcoated
fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes installed. The canopy is fitted to its frame and painted. Tail surfaces are
also hollow moulded and are finished. A small hardware package and short building
instructions are completing the kit. Retractable landing gear is not included
and may be purchased separately.
