ASW 22 BL by Baudis

ITS HERE and it was worth the wait.
Thanks goes out to Bob and Annette at Soaring USA

This ship is amazing. The fit and finish is near perfect. The wing appears to be quite strong and the flex is very uniform. I don't think I'll have to worry about slapping wing tips. The retract unit opens and closes so easily I think I could get away with a HS 85 running it (I won't). The trailing edge is wider than I thought it would be from the pictures I looked at. The forward hinging canopy is nice and works great but will need some type of lock mechinism to hold it in the upright position. The nose is so pointy I may have to cut a slot in the bottom a half inch behind the nose for the tow hook release. The cockpit is sparce and has a stick on photograph of the instruments. My 1/5 scale pilot needs some clothes but I have all winter to get that done.

This ship is advertised to be 176oz ready to fly. I just weighed the entire airframe at 125 oz. That gives me 50 oz for the 12 servos, wiring, batteries, radio, linkages and nose weight.

So what exactly is there to build? Just kidding. It looks great!

Maybe you should have saved your money and instead bought a new wheelbarrow!

There's somthing very elegant about the 22. The fuselage styling is, IMO, much nicer than later, more rounded designs.

Best of luck and looking forward to the flying pics,

It's all a matter of prioities. Although I may use the wheelbarrow to jack up the left side of my back yard.

Excellent idea! Thats what McGyver would do!



Back to the model.. Are you going to start putting it together or just admire it hanging from your ceiling?

I need to gather the 12 servos, receiver and the rest of the stuff needed. I should start on her right after the first of 2011. I have 2 ships to build/rebuild prior to the ASW

Hello David, Alex "the Schleppmeister" towed my Baudis ASW 22BL up into the blue skies of Pennsylvania yesterday. It was my second flight with it. This ia a thoroughbred! It flies fast and slow. It tracks cleanly and it is a fabulous image to behold, with its gorgeous wing plan. It does simple aerobatics well enough to encourage a little play on good thermal days. With speed, I was able to do a passable roll on those 5+ , thin meters. Building this baby was one of my more complex projects, partly because of my building habits, and partly for the the specific kit I received. My kit came with no instructions. Did you find the building and setup instructions on the Baudis site? http://www.baudismodel.com/asw22bl-technical-data.php

Yes thanks. I've printed it several times. What servos did you use? I've just ordered 4 JR DS378 for the flaps and I'm going to try to get DS 368 in for the ailerons. I still don't know what I'll use for the elevator. I have an HS 82 that is slightly better than the spec'd HS 81.

David,

I'm no expert but I'd most definately be putting a digital servo on the elevator. I've given up on HS-81's especially after ending up with a box of them that don't work or have stripped gears. Now, any analog servo I use for anything has to have metal gears.

I'd agree, and go further and say that the 82 seems to have a poor reputation around here (a lot worse than the 81). I would really avoid it for such a nice ship, particularly for what is arguably the most critical control surface....
