Hi it's been awhile since the last post, this is just a follow up, have been flying the 15, when covid permits, still happy with the plane, it does seem to hang on well, and will climb on the weakest of thermals, we held your local aerotow event yesterday, one of our members had his camera and took a few pictures of the 15

Hello,

I am also building an ASW-15.
The last thing I installed was a motor, a Hacker A50.
Now the question arises for me, do I need additional weight in the nose of the plane?

Hi Jurgen, I am pretty sure you will need lead in the nose, I needed 1kg+ of lead in the nose, also I have 2, 5000 2s lipos as far forward as I could get them, plus a std size tow release servo
