The ASW 28 is a single-seat shoulder-winged composite construction sailplane with a T-shaped horizontal tailplane and 15 metre wingspan. The upper wing surface has Schempp-Hirth brake flaps.
As all Standard Class sailplanes, the ASW-28 does not have flaps or other lift-enhancing devices. It has tall winglets, a retractable undercarriage and a water ballast system. The structure is a complex composite of carbon, aramid and polyethylene fibre reinforced plastic. This permits a light structure with the strength to carry large amounts of water ballast, thus permitting the widest possible range of wing loadings for weak and strong soaring weather.
FMS have created this wonderfully exciting aerobatic glider in impact absorbing and resilient EPO foam. The mould quality is sublime adding to the efficiency and great looks; also combined with a high powered brushless motor and LiPo battery, give the budding modeller a new level of high performance excitement.
This glider features glass/carbon composite and aluminium tube strengthened wings that are easily removable for transport and a very compact fuselage adding further to the enjoyment of this model.
Positive and negative loops, stall turns, point rolls and inverted flight are all easily performed with this model and it will also perform excellently simply hunting for thermals or slope flying, making it suitable for a wide range of pilots.
