... the essence of beauty and performance

The ASW 20 is an FAI 15 metre Class glider designed by Gerhard Waibel and built by Alexander Schleicher GmbH & Co. Its fuselage is nearly identical to that of the ASW 19, mated to newly designed flapped wings for the 15 metre Class. The prototype first flew in 1977. It proved to be a highly successful glider, winning several World Championships, and was still being flown at this level up to 1995. Developments along its production life included winglets, pneumatic turbulators, and wingtip extensions. It remained in production until 1990, when it was superseded by the ASW 27

This model is actually a replica of the 16m ASW-20L (with winglets) 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.

Content:

- Epoxy/fiberglass fuselage painted in the mould.
- Wings hollow moulded in Carbon D-box version, very sturdy.
- Double-height airbrakes, already installed.
- Clear canopy fitted.
- retractable landing gear installed
- Cockpit.
- Wings 2 pieces with wing joiners, moulded tail unit, set of winglets
- Hardware, short instructions, decals.

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.

For aerotowing, this glider requires a nose tow release, sold separately, this is also a great candidate for electric power, either FES (front electric sustainer) or pylon.
