At last! After 3+ years of development we're thrilled to release this soaring masterpiece! Long the mainstay of the Club Soaring world, the Schweizer 2-33A was the first taste of soaring for many thousands of pilots. This beautiful 1/4 scale rendition with an advanced high performance airfoil is designed for aero-tow or benevolent slope launching and it's wide speed range will thrill even the most demanding soaring pilots in any kind of conditions.. turbulent air or light lift.; the Aviation Concepts SGS 2-33A will work an immense amount of sky.
Now, you can build your own! You can get the basic Plan Sets and Color Building Manual as well as the Fiberglass Nose Cone, Formed Canopy and Top Window Glass, Built-Up Wings and a Laser Cut Wood Parts Set too! (sorry, this is NOT available as an 'ARF'.. you get to build this!) News Flash! Now includes wing sheeting jig, build tabs on the fin and rudder, main wheel and tow loop "bridal" insertion tool. Also available separetly is a scale tow release retro fit package. This is a scale external tow release that can be built into your model. Note, the scale tow release can not be added to an already finished model.
A Built Up wing that's a pleasure to build and a Joy to Fly!
Here again, we're breaking new ground.. who else offers a high performance airfoil on a scale 'training' glider? Nobody. And as any good soaring pilot knows, 'The wing is the thing'. For the wing design we chose the SD 7032 for the center sections and the tips to provide outstanding penetration, smooth & efficient thermal turns and an exceptional speed range making the 2-33 capable of dealing with higher wind conditions. You won't get stuck downwind, and your L/D will be phenomenal. Especially in the evenings dead air. You will be amazed. This airfoil is right at home providing outstanding light and medium air thermal performance too! Thermal or slope, breezy or calm.. smooth sailing... and the 4 scale spoilers are a wonder for short field work and precision landings, right at your feet.
By popular demand... the sheeting wing jig is now included in the short kit. This is a big hit with the 1/3 scale 2-33 model and has been scaled down and retrofitted to the 1/4 scale model. Because the wing is undercambered, the jig simplifies the gluing on of the wing skins to the wing structure. Also keeps the correct twist "washout" in the wing panels, which is crutial. The jig is also used to join together the inner and outer wing panels keeping them on the correct plane.
The Plans Set and Manual Package
This is the 'heart' of any big bird building project.. and the quality starts right here. Instead of just a set of blurred copies and a 'good luck' handshake, we give you 12 sheets of precise, detailed Original printed Plans (14 sheets with the built-up wing version!) with all full size patterns and a complete 'bill of materials' for the entire project.
The Build is astoundingly smooth and easy.. what would have been an overwhelmingly complicated fuselage structure builds up very quickly, flat on the board, right over the plans...
Then we go even further... MUCH further and include an outstanding color assembly manual. Included are the Designer Scale features and detail sheets, cockpit components and dash documentation, scale canopy latch, air speed and variometer pitots, steps, tip wheels & skids, tow release, removable Fin/Rudder and Stab details... literally EVERY bit of info needed to build an outstanding scale project. PLUS 50+ pages of straightforward step-by-step instructions with hundreds of color photos detailing each step.
The Canopy Parts and the Fiberglass Nose
Yep.. we got 'em. And not just flimsy parts that won't stand the test of time and hundreds of flights, either. We offer a beautiful molded fiberglass nose cone as well as a spectacular vacuum molded Canopy and Top Glass set, at a reasonable price. You don't want to know the hours that went into the custom molds for these components.. but we did it so you don't have to.
Laser Cut Wood Parts
Here's the key to a speedy build... the Laser Cut Parts set.. Every piece that would take several days cutting with a precision band-saw just to get ready to build... it's all done for you. The Built-Up Wing versions stack of laser cut ribs is most impressive! From the stabilizer tips to the complicated formers and keel, all 185+ parts... Done. Top quality lumber selection, aircraft ply, light ply and balsa plus a precision cut you'll be amazed at. The fit is superb. As it should be. Add your sheet and stick wood per the manuals complete materials list and your ready to start building!
