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.
