FOR SALE: 6 meter span ASW 22 by Hans Muller at Cumberland event this week
I have been flying this for the past number of years quite a bit and have been having a great time with it at many Eastern events, sloping and thermaling. Time has come to part with it and make room in the hangar. No crashes but it did catch a tow hook once in air and made a small hole 1/4" hole in wing, but was repaired and recovered with red covering.
Thanks to Steve P for the write up and some pics below with some amendments:
FOR SALE: 6 meter span ASW 22 by Hans Muller. No PIlot figure included. All servos included, ready to fly. , just add receiver and perhaps a proper pilot figure. Needs your batteries too (or my 2 2700 Nickel metal can be included...from NOBS Batteries)
The full scale 22 is a classic 24 meter Schleicher sailplane circa 1981, while this 6 meter wingspan 1:4 model traces its roots back to one of the legendary craftsmen in the RC soaring hobby. It was originally imported into the U.S. back in the day by Robin Lehman and employed as a big fast sloper. It had been hidden away until recently when it again took to the skies, this time behind a tow plane.
Beautiful strong wings from the workshop of the late master, Hans Muller. Wood over foam with the original Orafoil covering still in darn good condition. Flying surfaces are all knuckle-hinged as is the absolute standard for Muller wings. Fiberglass Rosenthal fuselage with finish in white paint that has a few imperfections but still has a high gloss and looks great. Canopy is crystal clear with zero yellowing and locks positively. Seat pan is basic, sourced from a Let model and sized for 1/4 scale pilot (the Axel pilot in the photos is not included). Plane is currently balanced for with a pilot figure.
Wing servos (8) are all the fantastic Volz brand in proper mounting Volz frames/boxes or the classic JR thin wing servos, with pushrod fairings . Wing control surfaces are four ailerons, two flaps and two airbrakes/spoilers. Responds well to camber in lift and tows rock-solid with just 3/8" down flaps. Plane is 12 channel in total. JR digital MG servos on the elevator and the tow release. Hitec digital on rudder -- rudder pushrod is sticky. Plane operating on two (2) 5-cell 4/5A size NiMH 2700 packs included if you like from last season.
Four piece wing makes for easy transportation. Main wing rod is steel with carbon fiber joiners in the tip panels. Wings connect to fuselage with strong monoblocks while tips feature the Multiplex snap wing connectors. No need for tape or other means of connection. It is a tight, strong bird. Protective wing bags included -- red Mylar exterior, clear bubble interior -- for all four wing sections and the horizontal stabilizer.
Flying surfaces are plug-n-play with the main wing panel electrical connectors mating with connectors in the fuselage sides and the tip panel connectors working similarly when mating with the main panels. All wiring leads inside the fuselage are labeled for the corresponding flying surface making receiver installation a breeze.
This is a rare unobtainum sailplane with sexy lines that both tows and soars beautifully. It is now available for a new home. Yours?
