About this Plan

ASK 14. Radio control scale motor glider model. Wingspan 2300 mm, for 2.5 cc engines.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote (google-translated from the German): "Foreword: The wingspan of the model is approx 2300 mm. The reduction scale to the original is about 1:6 and should only be taken as an approximation.

In order to achieve optimal flight characteristics and for practical reasons, some changes have been made compared to the large prototype. It has been shown during testing of the prototype models that greater ground clearance on the underside of the wing significantly reduces the risk of breakage when landing on uneven terrain. That is why the wing connection is higher than the original. The pendulum tailplane is also higher up for the same reason.

Also in other details, such as the engine arrangement, canopy, landing wheel, etc, there are deviations that were necessary with regard to the design and production of the model.

The model can be built with or without ailerons. Without ailerons, the V-shape needs to be increased to 6° (see section: The wing). With the aileron model and the more powerful OS MAX III 15 engine, most aerobatic maneuvers can be flown. Divisible aileron connections for the wing are provided for better assembly and disassembly. For the model without ailerons, the OS MAX 10 engine is sufficient. This version can also be used to fly simple aerobatic maneuvers, such as upward loops, etc.

The tailplane is designed as a pendulum rudder, is rotatable and is moved by an angle lever.

General: The construction time is greatly reduced by the following parts: the fiberglass-plastic fuselage with vertical fin in high-quality fiberglass technology, the two balsa-sheeted wing halves, tailplane halves and the balsa-sheeted rudder.

The glass fiber plastic fuselage in epoxy design is very elastic, impact-resistant and dimensioned in such a way that it can withstand rough flight operations without damage.

Only UHU-plus 'Endfest 300' or another equivalent epoxy adhesive is suitable for gluing on and in the hull..."

    ScaleType: This (oz14770) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schleicher_ASK_14
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.

User comments

Hello Mary and Steve, I am sending here some photos of my restored ASK14 from Graupner [main pic, 009-012]. I received the model in bad condition, very oily and heavily coated with paint. It was a lot to do but it was worth it.
The opening of the methanol engine was sealed with epoxy and an electric motor with 3S-Lipo was installed.
Original servos and aileron steering were also installed. And of course catalog-finish....;o))
For me one of the prettiest models from Graupner.
A video of the "second" maiden flight on a very windy day can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcYLTkzmt7Y Best greeting from Germany, Oliver

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
