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.

• 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

These finally restocked at the US Warehouse (allowing free shipping eligibility for US residents) and that made the value of this package a Game Changer!!! Elsewise we were looking at almost a hundred dollars to ship and its another animal then, but at the current price-point your satisfaction is guaranteed. You are simply getting so much value that you will have no choice but to five star this product up and down and return to the hobbyking again and again to peruse its wares for many years to come. Thank you HK!

Great glider, great weight to wing surface ratio.

A great glider. Great weight to wing surface ratio. Tail plastic connectors that receive vertical stabilizer need to be reinforced with more glue. A great product overall.

Damaged goods

Jul 07, 2021

Arrived with Good packaging....but on opening broken spinner cracked canopy and it didn't fit.
Complained to HK but they came across as " don't care" and to be honest it was cheap, and the quality you get what you pay for. Honest opinion, wasted my money.
