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.

This is an awesome glider for $129 !!

Jun 13, 2021

This is really a nice glider. Fuse is a bit cheap but seems sturdy. Wings are nice foam with carbon fiber spar reinforcements. It went together really fast (~ 2h) and well. Took the pilot as well as the black cockpit out to get the CG right. Flying it with 1400 mAh 3s lipo. Plane is not underpowered and glides very well. It's actually quite fast for a glider and makes a very nice sound. Overall I think this is a lot of bang for the buck and I can certainly recommend this glider, probably for the intermediate pilot.

fantastic value for money

a lot of glider for £100 inc p&p!
only downside is fitting the control horns 2 flaps 2 airelons 1 elevator 1 rudder x4 screws per horn = 24 pesky screw holes to drill !
I use a 4 cell 1.3 LiPo to power the motor-3 cell is underpowered-in my opinion.
For the experienced flyer this aircraft puts up a great performance when used as a glider ie power up to 400 feet and look for thermals

The canopy needs to be thicker matarial, took out the landing wheel and glued a wooden patch in (epoxy) to place the three-cell battery back for CG
