My ASW-17.

I post it here because it has a lot of similarities with its little brother, including the balsa in the wings inspection and the low-set horizontal tail.

There is an obvious family resemblance.

Why not start my own ASW-17 site? Well, the patronage would be pretty limited. Only about 50 of these were made, and there are only 7 registered in the U.S.

With fiberglass structure (no carbon fibre) and a thin wing (~13%), it is HEAVY*, so the handling fixtures are necessary. 



* Each wing main panel weighs around 280 pounds ( 127 kg) - about the same as the empty weight of an AC-4 Russia

Want to land a 20 Meter glider on a tennis court? The Koseletzky BS1600 Bremsschirm. (Braking Parachute)
On the ASW-17, this drops out of a compartment on the bottom of the glider, about 8  inches (20 cm) behind the main wheel.

There are a couple of photographs of one in use on brunomaes.com
