Hobby Lobby ASK-21



ASK-21 Glider RTF

Hobby Lobby ASK-21 Sailplane (1 min 14 sec)


Self-launching sailplane with scale looks and great thermal performance
78-3/4" wingspan, 39-3/8" long, 400 sq. in. wing area, 27 oz. flying weight, RG-15 airfoil. The ASK-21 is a sport scale self-launching sailplane that is easy to transport and launch. Its tough EPO foam construction makes it a low anxiety, take it anywhere, fly it anytime glider. The pre-installed outrunner motor provides plenty of power to climb to thermal altitude in seconds and when you shut down the power the prop blades fold and you are off seeking thermals.

Flight times are only limited by thermal activity and your skill at finding them. The RG-15 airfoil has a broad speed range and penetrates well to get back from those downwind thermals.

Assembly requires only a few minutes and does not require any glue. All the tools required are supplied in the kit. Wings and tail are easily removed for transport and storage; take it with you nearly anywhere, when the conditions are good you'll be ready.

An ASK-21 2 Meter Glider Receiver Ready Version is also available.

Wow! That looks pretty nice, Jason. Very light weight for a 2-meter electric ship.

Jason,

Superb flying was demonstrated by keeping that big glider in close proximity to the camera. The ASK 21 climbed out with authority once launched and flew very smooth. Cool little touch and go on what look like dirt.

Looks like the soon to be released Radian Pro will have some competition.

EDIT: I just realized that this glider doesn't have flaps. Still looks like a great deal.

Alex, thanks for posting video of my ASK. Pretty nice plane for the money. I replaced radio with my own AR 500. (I purchased the RTF version with radio). I did so because of stated range. Also, I can adjust elevator travel (it is sensitive), Duh, it's a T-tail. I also can add Expo to controls. this plane shuld get a workout later this week at the 44th Cumberland Soar for Fun in Western MD..
