New Product

I have received the first shipment of the latest 7-meter ChocoFly ASW-17S GPS Racers, This model is the 2019 World Champion model in GPS Triangle Racing, and the winningest model on the Euro Tour in 2018/2019. It is known for it's combination of ease-of-flying, outstanding thermal performance, and ability to go fast.

These are fully-molded, mostly Carbon models, white gel-coated, canopy mounted with release mechanism, fully hinged surfaces, retract with brake installed, separately-molded doors hinged and torsion spring-loaded, separate wing and elevator servo covers color-matched to contrasting underside color (Red or Anthracite); removable Rudder/Fin assembly means 92-inch fuselage for transport. Wing is 4-section, 8 servos (2 ailerons, 2 flaps, no spoilers), elevator 2-servos, rudder servo installs in the fin base above the tailwheel. Wing and fuselage bags included.

One model has Dark Grey flying surface undersides, the other has Red. Removable Rudder/Fin assembly means 92-inch fuselage for transport.

Options available: full set of IDS frames, links, horns for ChocoMotion/MKS/KST recommended servos; full set of ChocoMotion servos (10% off with model) FES systems with removable white propeller; Schambeck belly mount tow release (fits under FES system).

Links to manufacturer website and an example of a build https://www.chocofly.com/asw/

These models are high-end, high-finish, high-performance beauties, so no bargains on prices - they start around $6500.

That CMS model link has great pictures of the removable fin and how the elevator connects with servos to each surface.

Sean - heck yeah!! This looks really sweeeet. Chocofly has really been busy and has produced some impressive aircraft. I’ll be keeping my eye on this one!!

Bruce - is there a scale cockpit option? And I see they’re not telling us much about the airfoil, are there at least thickness percentages and camber values?

PS it looks like it has all internal, LDS mechanisms on all surfaces (even elevators). And they are compatible/provide trays for MKS HV747 and MKS HBL6625, both my favorite servos. I approve!

It comes with a removable plastic tray and instrument panel - no other option. Airfoil is proprietary. Camber values - if you mean cruise, thermal, speed and landing settings they are provided.

The LDS frames set is an option - they do not come pre-installed.
