ASK23 is a single-seat Club Class sailplane that was built by the German manufacturer Alexander Schleicher GmbH & Co.
It was the last glider to be designed by Rudolf Kaiser. It is an early solo sailplane with docile handling, and so it was a successor to the Schleicher Ka 8 and ASK 18. It is also the single-seater counterpart of the two-seater Schleicher ASK 21 with a similar cockpit layout. It uses glass-fiber reinforced plastic and 'honeycomb' as its main constructional materials. It has no flaps, a nose wheel, a fixed main-wheel and a tail-skid or optional tail wheel.
FMS has created this wonderfully exciting aerobatic glider in impact absorbing and resilient EPO foam. The mold quality is sublime adding to the efficiency and great looks; also combined with a high powered brushless motor and LiPo battery, gives the budding modeler a new level of high performance excitement.
This glider features glass/carbon composite and aluminum tube strengthened wings that are easily removable for transport and a very compact fuselage adding further to the enjoyment of this model.
