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.
