Any reports on these yet? Anyone got one flying that can tell us how it goes?

Get a real one.
I know someone with one of these and he says its exceptional. He's very picky about his planes too. Apparently good thick fuse layup and great build quality.

They do a DG-1000 too.

They way you treat your planes, that nose will be off before you pack it in the car.

It comes with the same radio and power train like their Easy Fly glider.
It only runs a 2 cell Lipo, but still plenty of power due to its smaller size.
Wing two halves slides on a single CF tube spar, no wing joiner.

I saw their new DG-100; it is pretty cool with its retractable motor.

Generally, the ASW-28 and DG100 look good, parts fit much better.

Yeah I saw the DG1000 today. Very trick the way the motor unfolds and folds away.

Both. Mav has the AWS, Guy the DG. I don't know anyone fussier about the quality of their planes.
If they say they are good, I'm convinced.

Yeah I met Guy yesterday. I bought some stuff off him that he had on the for sale thread. Your name was mentioned, in a nice way.

This ST MOdel AWS28 I'm looking at for flat land thermalling out here where I live between the slopes. Guy also mentioned DLG's he has one and says it goes great on the flatland but damn those things are expensive, except for the Canterbury Sailplanes Eagle which seems a bit heavy at 400gms compared to 250gms for a good moulded DLG.

The ASW 28 the DG 1000 the Salto are all FLY FLY models,general glass work is good but they all need work to produce and aircraft that wont crack on the first landing ,none of them I would recommend as a thermal ship however , they are slope only .

Isn't the plane Kamakazi referring to EPO? Or has discussion moved onto the ones from the Hobbycity link?

I was tossing up getting one of these (ST Models ASW 28) as a first sailplane - now the Easy glider has been discontinued.

Mr K was talking about the EPO version but a glass version was also brought in to the discussion and as I own all 3 of the glass ones I thought it would be good to advise that they are not floaters just in case .

Yeah they are $209 at my LHS with everything. Though I would not need the radio gear as I would use my own. But at 2 metres and a fyling weight of 520 grams approx it should be a real floater once its up there. Not looking for an extreme aerobatic glider, maybe some loops and rolls is about it. Relaxed easy flying. And the battery is 2s 1000mah which are cheap as chips if you want extras.
