Electric ASW-22 B270 from Graupner
Posted this over in the Electric Sailplane forum, but got no responses. Maybe should have posted here?
Got a good deal on this plane, NIB:
Graupner ASW-22 B270. Wingspan: 105", Wing area: 679 sq. in., Weight: 79 oz., Wingloading: 17 oz./sq. ft., Airfoil: Eppler 195 modified, Skill level: INT/INT, Radio: standard receiver, 4 micro servos, Motor type: 10-cell
Seems to be an older kit, with the following brushed recommendations:
Graupner Speed 700 turbo direct drive system, a 10-cell 1000 SCR battery pack, and FX35D speed control. Alternative is Turbo 900
NSP has an old posting with Sal offering:
Mega Midi 7 with 8 cells and a 10x6 Graupner prop & FX35D ESC.
Anone have a different opinion? I'm thinking I'd like to go the higher-voltate Lithium Polymer route, with high-turn DD brushless motor. While not new to electrics, this one is a LITTLE different from what I'm flying just now ... and I'd really like to follow a success story...
Presently I fly two electrics: a S480 powered TwinJet, on (9) RC 2400 cells, and an OD Su-27 Flanker on a Mega 16-15-5 and 4S1P LiPoly.
