ASK-18 glider by Cliff Charlesworth
This 1/4 scale 4m span replica of one of the best and most elegant pre-glass fibre era club single-seat sailplanes by Cliff Charlesworth. Designed for the use of radio control this model glider is a great flier and a well-proven design. It comes on a two sheet plan. Cliff was known for his use of the sandwich method for producing the wing ribs. You do not need to worry as all ribs are now plotted and included in the kit.
The Wing has now been modified to an easy build version Cliff discussed this with me before he passed away, it is just a shame he did not see the finished design.
Designed for radio control up to 5 channels. Aileron, elevator, rudder, airbrakes, and tow release.
Hi Cliff, finally got around to building your redesigned wing for the ASK18. Congratulations on a brilliant design, so easy to build and with excellent laser cut parts. Thanks again for the great service you provide. Brian Taylor
