This superb Electric Powered glider is finished in a scale Air Cadets scheme which is also excellent for orientation, the ASK21 is an attractive looking aircraft and this unique colour scheme really finishes of this model very nicely.
The fuselage is quality fiberglass construction with the ply motor mount and servo/battery tray pre-installed, the 3 landing wheels are also pre-installed. The wing is an all balsa construction and is superbly pre-covered, the wing features large flaps for nice slow landings and is a 2 pc plug-in set up for easy transportation and are mounted onto a solid CF rod, the wings also feature fiberglass wing tip skids.
There is plenty of room for a 36mm in-runner motor to spin the supplied 11x7 folding prop/spinner assembly which will give plenty of thrust for rapid ascent as well as efficient powered cruising, there is also plenty of room under the quick replease canopy for a decent size 3s pack for excellent flight times. There is no doubt about it, this is an attractive, quality powered glider that is also very practical being able to handle a variety of landing surfaces, one for almost any airfield that will give many hours of flying pleasure.

un desastre de velero. las cuerda para pasar el cable de servos estaban mal colocadas.
el centro de gravedad no es el correcto. y varias cosasa mas. chino de los autenticos.
A noter aussi : le poids annonc de 1400-1600g est loin de la ralit. Comptez plutt 2300g en ordre de marche. A motoriser en 4S obligatoirement.Beau planeur mais il faut tre expert pour le monter. La notice de montage est succincte et fausse. Il manque les vis du stabilo, les guignols ne sont pas ceux annoncs, le support moteur est coll de travers, les crous aveugles dans les ailes ne tiennent pas. Je passe sur le montage sur canopy qui relve du grand art, le support d'hlice dont la rondelle de compression casse au premier serrage,etc...
Bref, il faut avoir du stock et beaucoup d'intelligence pour monter ce kit.
Je verrai si j'ai le courage de le faire voler quand il sera mont... un jour.Upon first looks, the wings and fuse look great. I re heated some of the covering to get the unfinished areas done. As I was building, I noticed the wheels lack much quality along with the canopy setup. Furthermore the wing bolt that connects the inside of the fuse to the inside of the wing somehow knocked the inner wings nut loose and now I have to tear apart the wing to get it back. The hardware bag is missing a tremendous amount of stuff and/or replaced with something that won't fit. To make matters worse, the glider didn't even come with a prop and spinner as it was supposed too. Hopefully I can finish this build soon with the poor quality instructions. Anyways, sorry for the negative review, I'm hoping for good flight.This is a lovely Glider a fantastic looking model very large and great in the sky to fly..
But no beginners kit even in ARF. Also needs good hands on in flight. don't take you eye of it even for a second . For Glider I found it more like flying a full power plane. So great for the experienced who want something fun to fly and looks great. I loved it. Put on the fat shark and Fun Fun Fun.From Order to arrive, only 6 days. Verry quick. The prop and Spinner was not inside. The glue on the motormount was not very well. The Qualiti of the rest is very good. Looks fine and i think when the Glider is finish it will looks and fly very well.got the 2600mm ASK-21 , perfect box, model in perfect condition, DID NOT INCLUDE FOLDING PROP OR SPINNER. She went together well but it is not a build for beginners. This "ARF" takes alot of creative engineering to get it built. Do not use the reccomentded motor/prop combination, it drew 60 amps on a 3S and the motor got smoking hot in 15 sec. (that motor is a waste of money) I ended up changing to a tunigy 3528 motor with an 9x6 prop. the wing bolt blindnut was loose and had to cut into the wing to re-epoxy it. replaced the CA hinges with robart style hinges for the rudder. the antirotation pins for the wing wer replaced with a carbon fiber rod and relocated to get them right. The flaps dont have enough throw (only about 30 deg) but that'll need to wait for now. She came out a bit TAIL HEAVY so I removed the tailwheel and added 2.5 oz to the nose (this is with one microservo in the tail for the elevator and the 3000 mAh 3S batt all the way forward.) would recc putting both servos in the bay infront of the CG.(lots of room there). SHE FLEW GREAT! keep the CG 5mm forward of where the manual recc. she feels heavy but thermals great, she is sleek and fast with good glide slope, no prob with tip stall if you keep the speed up. very fun plane, overall 5 crowns (but diffucult build) I recc it as a cheap starter gllider for intermediate builder.Es mi segunda unidad, y creo que es el mejor avin de Hobbyking dentro de los que he probado.
Es conveniente hacerle algunas modificaciones antes de volar:
Reforzar algunas partes con fibra de vidrio, como el morro donde se acopla el motor (con cuidado para que no quede desnivelado) y las uniones del contrachapado a la fibra.
Cortar los flaps para darle ms ngulo.
Las ruedas son una verdadera mierda. Debers reforzarlas o cambiarlas como mejor puedas.
Por lo dems, el vuelo es genial. Ninguna tendencia a meter el ala, y planea bastante bien y pilla bien las trmicas pese a ser bastante pesado.
Muy recomendable. Lo ms complicado es pillarlo cuando hay stock en un almacn de Europa.
Si lo pillas en China, te lo pararn fijo en la aduana dado el tamao de la caja, y preprate para el puro. Ten en cuenta que aduanas suma el precio del avin ms los gastos de envo (y todo lo que lleven en la caja para hacer sus clculos [IVA, impuesto de importacin, impuesto revolucionario de tramitacin, etc]. Por un pedido de 300$, me toc pagar 90 y esperar un mes desde que lleg a la aduana. Cuidadn.arrived with no damage! fuselage is really have good finishes but wing outfit has lots of wrinkles. will need a lot of work, maybe changing the covering film! :-(um modelo muito bonito, voa muito bem! O meu estou voando em encosta, so apenas 10 segundos de motor e mais de meia hora de pura diverso. Estou usando um motor outrunner Turnigy 3548/4 de 1100kv com bateria 3S de 2200mAh. Se for compr-lo, compre tambm os horns, rodas, hlice e spinner, pois os que acompanham o modelo so de pssima qualidade.
It's a ver beautiful model, it flies very well! I'm flying on lift, it's about 10 seconds of full power and more than 30 minutes of pure soaring fun. I'm using an outrunner Turnigy 3548/4 1100KV motor with 3S 2200mAh battery. If you wanna buy this model, also buy horns, wheel, propeller and spinner, because what's included are of poor quality.
