The full-scale ASW 28 is a Standard Class glider with a fifteen-meter span built of modern fiber-reinforced composites. The manufacturer of the ASW-28 is Alexander Schleicher GmbH & Co. The "W" indicates this is designed by the influential and prolific German designer Gerhard Waibel. Serial production started in 2000.

As with all Standard Class sailplanes, the ASW-28 does not have flaps or other lift-enhancing devices. It has tall winglets, a retractable landing gear, and a water ballast system. The structure is a complex composite of carbon, aramid, and polyethylene fiber-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.

The Volantex ASW 28 is a sport scale model that does incorporate flaps, unlike its full-scale counterpart. It comes plug and fly so you just need to complete some final assembly, install your battery, receiver, and fly. The airframe is a mix of EPO foam for the wings and tail, with a blow-molded plastic fuselage. This gives a slick finish that is also extremely durable. Great for those less than perfect slope sites. A recent addition to the ASW 28 is a more powerful 4018-1050kV brushless outrunner motor that rockets the ASW 28 to altitude, then when you throttle down, the propeller folds back for extended soaring. Accessing the battery is easy through the canopy with four small snap locks that keeps the canopy secure.

Version 2 comes with lots of extra features. The wings come with two spars in each wing to give extra strength during those tight turns and power-dives and the servos have also been upgraded to a more powerful type. Installing the wings is now easier with a plastic latch for securing the wings. Inside there is now a bigger plywood tray to make it easier to carry FPV cameras, VTx's, or other electronics. Landings are now a lot easier with the inclusion of landing gear. No more scraping the fuselage.


Features:
• Plug and Fly - Just install your own battery, transmitter, and receiver
• Ultra-durable blow-molded plastic fuselage
• EPO foam molded wings and tail
• All servos, including flaps come pre-installed
• Easy removal canopy/battery hatch with pilot figure
• Upgraded 4018-1050kv brushless motor with a folding propeller installed


Specs:
Wingspan: 2540mm
Length: 1132mm
Flying Weight: 1050g
Motor: 4018-1050kv Brushless Outrunner Motor (recently upgraded)
ESC: 30A 2~3S w/BEC
Servo: 9g x 6 (these servos have been upgraded recently to a more powerful type)


Required:
6 Channel Transmitter and Receiver
3S 11.1V 1500mAh LiPo Battery
Foam-safe glue


Please note: Some batches of the ASW 28's may have an ESC label that states rated from 2~4S, this is incorrect, it should have stated 2~3S and 3S is the maximum recommended cell count for this model.

Un très joli planeur

Nov 18, 2021

Très bien construit pour voler à la pente. Pour la plaine il est nécessaire de plier les clefs d'aile de 5° et de rajouter une cale de 3mm à l'arrière du stabilisateur, le but étant de le rendre auto-stable pour voler à limite de vue à la recherche des thermiques. Ainsi je le trouve très bien après plus de 20 vols

Caught again

Nov 16, 2021

Looks good flies good but very shoddy. First test flight very short resulted in cracked canopy around pins. Well what do you know. Replacements unavailable. Second flight 2 min duration. Not the best landing resulted in tail snapping clean off just above plastic support Rudder broke off along hinge East to repair right. Put carbon rods up inside vertical stabilizer. Put hinges on rudder. Found rudder server not working. All back together but before I fly it again I’m going to stock up on super glue

ASW28 V2

Sep 30, 2021

Arrived today.
Well packaged.
Looks good.
No doubt if will fly well as I read lots of positives on the Sail bird and watched lots of videos on you tube.
Yet to set up and test.
I'm confident if will fly well and catch lots of thermals.
For the money it look's excellent in quality.
I was looking at the FMS Fox Glider 3M which is now £400 to buy. With this being almost a quarter of that at 2.54M it was a no brainer which one to buy.

Very Impressive Model

Sep 11, 2021

I read most of the reviews on this plane in several different publications including Hobby King of course. The ones written by experienced modelers were all in agreement that the ASW-28 is an excellent sailplane and an excellent bargain. I used everything provided except the pilot figure and canopy platform, since the plane is nose heavy if you do use those 2.5 ounce pieces. I also used a 50amp ESC because I wanted to program a motor brake and did not know how to do it with the included ESC which also worked OK by the way. I managed to also use a Hobby King gyro installed just ahead of the balance point which allows it to be adjusted easily. A 1500 amp three cell lipo powers the plane and provides 5-9 minutes depending on throttle settings, and longer if thermals are in the area. The pieces all fit together properly. The wing is strong enough and the attachment method is first rate. Servos are excellent--mine are metal-geared except rudder which is nylon. I use an 11-6 CF propeller. Decals are good if you install them carefully. I removed the landing wheel, but reinstalled it after discovering it was very light and of good quality. The canopy attachments were a little fiddley but I installed a few tiny screws in each one, and slightly enlarged the holes in the fuselage, and now the canopy is firm yet easy to install and remove. I also trimmed it with 1/4 inch red tape which outlines it and makes it look very nice compared to just clear plastic. I'm very impressed with the ASW-28 and strongly recommend it as a first sailplane. It's a great addition to any hangar.

ASW 28 planeur idéal ?

Sep 09, 2021

Époustouflant de souplesse et de précision, et de puissance au moteur (lipo 3S / 1500 mAh). Pour qu'il soit vraiment au top... il faudrait:
- mettre le sixième servo (dérive) en pignonnerie métallique
- des déflecteurs de commande (augmentation de la finesse)
- des connecteurs reliés aux servos en emplantures des ailes
- revoir la fixation de la verrière (celle proposée est vraiment trop fragile)
Là, je pense, on aura un super petit planeur, aux vols magnifiques en pente, et surtout facile à monter et à démonter.
