SOLD - Rare, Vintage Astro Flight Kit ASW-17 - SOLD
Up for sale: Vintage/Rare Astro Flight ASW-17
This is an older kit produced in 1972 (38 years ago)
I purchased this kit from the original owner years ago at an estate sale in Los Angeles and it has been in storage ever since.
Specs from the rolled plans:

Wing Span: 132 Inches
Wing Area: 950 sq. Inches
Aspect Ratio: 19 to 1
Airfoil: Eppler 387
Length: 49 In.

The Astro Flight ASW-17 is a 1/6 scale model of the full-scale open class sailplane. The ASW-17 was the second open class design of Gerhard Waibel. Full-scale performance L/D max. 48/1 at 54 kt, span 20m (65.6 ft)
The ASW-17 kit placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the 1972 North-South Radio Control Challenge in Bakersfield, CA.
The kit includes:
- Fiberglass fuselage
- Spruce & Balsa wing
- Clear Canopy
- Hardware package
- Rolled plans, Instructions, ASW-17 info,histroy, drawings, etc..
The kit box and original box label are still in great condition; the plans are not damaged (No tears etc.) Fuse looks good with no damage of any kind. Overall the kit appears to be in great shape.
As a side note:
I will ship this item double boxed! Since this kit could possibly be a collector's item, I don't to harm the original kit box by placing mailing labels, or tape on it. As a result, shipping will be a couple extra dollars higher due to the added weight.
I like paypal but will take money orders as well.
