ASW 17 5m from D-POWER Modellbau


The ASW-17 by D-POWER is a scale glider in full composite construction. Just like the original from Schleicher, this replica in scale 1:4 impresses with its excellent thermalling flight characteristics as well as its aerobatics suitability.

Once the ASW-17 is in the air, the model will enchant you with its wonderfully scale flight pattern and excellent gliding characteristics. In combination with the flaps the ASW-17 can be adapted to different weather conditions. And thanks to the various brake options and the slow flight characteristics, the glider can be landed safely even in narrow places. Optionally the ASW-17 is fully prepared for the additional use of airbrakes.

ARF+: an extremely high degree of prefabrication They have deliberately decided not to offer you this model with built-in motors and servos. With the ARF+ equipment you have the possibility to equip your glider according to your preferences. All cable layers are completely laid out, so that you only have to connect your electronic components to the finished cable harness and plug the cables in the fuselage into the receiver. Spend minimum time in the basement - and maximum time on the airfield.

  • Ready installed servo frames
  • MULTIlock® wing locking system installed
  • MPX high current connector built into fuselage and wing parts
  • Pre-turned linkages, all linkages completely installed
