ASW 27 B
The ASW 27 B is the latest 15m racing class sailplane to be produced by the Alexander Schleicher company (AS), and was designed by Dipl. Ing. G. Waibel (W). The "B" version of the ASW 27 is distinguished by its large winglets. Like the full-size sailplane, the Tangent CONTEST-Line model of the 27 B offers a superb combination of performance and handling. This compact, fully aerobatic model is designed both for slope soaring and flat field flying, the latter using winch or aero-tow launch methods. For landing control the ailerons and flaps can be deflected to the Butterfly (crow) setting.
The control mixing for a full house version of this model is fairly complex and a computer radio is recommended such as the Profi 3030 or Royal Evo.
