Question
ASW 22 From Icare

Does anybody have any experiance with this ASW-22 from Icare? It seems like a pretty good deal with the installed retract.

Other than not having spoilers, it appears to be what I've been looking for. I want something in this price range and size, at least semi scale and have a pointy nose to accept a folding prop.

Thanks,
Greg

Gregg,
That interested me a bit too. I came a cross a review at: http://www.modellflug-online.at/php/...&contentid=233
I can't read German well, but I get the impression (via babblefish translation), there are some issues with warping on some surfaces. But at the price point ($330) with flaps, retract, detailed cockpit it looks like a great deal. I think you could easily heat or iron any warpage, if you you get any, quite easily. I wonder if it's similiar kit/maker/build as this AS-28 review: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=544859

Thanks for the link, I'll give that a read. I don't think it's the same plane as the one in the rcgroups review though. The wingspan is different and LET planes cost a lot more. I wish I could afford one of those.
