    Oh... if this will fit then give me a shout. I can make a glass tub for you. I can deliver it to an event or you pay postage but otherwise it will be free! The plastic tub I have has been used many times to pull glass parts and is starting to craze but I think I can get one or two more from it.

    Belly hook because it’s setup for a electric prop drive in the nose.

    Hoping for some help...just picked up a 5M ASW-20 built on the old (early 90's?) Mark Smith/Dreamcatcher fuse that needs a cockpit and was thinking of adapting the HH ASW-20 seat pan kit to fit. Can someone measure the size (length/width) of the one included in the 4.7m HH kit for me? Am hoping it will not be too small to use with some tweaking.

    Also looking for a nose mounted releasable towhook, can anyone recommend one that is readily available? I've been eyeing the ones on the Icare website (see at http://www.icare-icarus.com/Remote-n...ge_p_1226.html), are there other recommended sources?

    Thanks,

    Barry

    Hi Lars,
    IF you set the plane up to the throws listed in the manual will have the correct setup.

    ELEVATOR IS 13MM LOW RATE, 15MM HIGH RATE.

    CG is 96-106

    Be shure both are in that range and you should have no issues.
    Downwind turns can be exciting due to the airspeed being slower with the wind.,

    Hey
    Just got a secondhand Asw20 FES
    Maiden went well, but it highspeed stalled on me. No danger, but just a bit scarry...
    How much elevator movement do you use? I think that should be why it stalled...

    Best Regards

    Cool! Thanks for the ASH-31 canopy info. Guess the manual will catch up at some point.

    Just ordered one! Been kicking myself for not getting a spare when the model was in production and they were available.

    Which reminds me, the list of replacement parts in the manual for the new ASH-31 doesn't list the canopy as a a separate item. Sure would be nice if Horizon could add canopies to that list.

    Craig just let us know on rcgroups that the canopy for the 20 is in stock! If you need a replacement or a spare better grab one!

    If a few wouldn't mind for pure sailplane is the preferred CG near the front or back of the published range for best handling?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Pull one from styrene and leave the flashing on it. I'll use that to make fiberglass wheel wells! If you still have an uncut cockpit tub from your ASW20 I could sure use it. Mine is getting 'frazzled' from the multiple fiberglass 'pulls' it has had.
Working...
