AIRTRONICS AQUILA SAIL PLANE KIT
NEW INFORMATION REGARDING THIS PLANE KIT.
SEE THIRD PHOTO FOR UPDATE TO THIS AUCTION.
Up for sale is a Aquila sail plane. The plane is about 95% built. Since this is not my plane I don't know what all is to go with it. The original box had allot of wood, hardware for several other sail planes. I did find the spar webbing for the wings, a sealed bag of hardware, nyrod push rods, main wing bar, some thick ribs (for joining the wing sections), some wing spars, flat balsa sheets for the wings, assorted square and flat balsa and basswood. I am including everything I can fit in the box. Some of the items may not be for this model but you are going to get it anyway.
The person that built this model was a glider nut. He has been building for over 50 yrs and now is getting out of the hobby. I am selling all of his kits and partials builds. If you look at my other items you will see what he has for sale.
I have tried to describe this item as best as I can. In my estimation your going to get 98% of the plane, you may need to get some balsa but all the hardware is there.
After researching the internet I discovered these are going to around $200.00.
You can own one here for less than that.
Any questions please email me before you bid.
I have been informed by the builder of this kit that there is a small issue regarding the placement of the wing tube. The area circled in RED will need to be redone. He claims that the horizontal alignment of the wing tube is off.
You will need to remove the brass tube and adjust it aprox 1/8" to bring the horizontal plane of the wings into proper alignment. This is not a difficult thing to do, but it will need to be done.
Since I was not the builder of this kit and did not indicate this at the beginning of the auction, I will except any bid cancellations without action. Sorry to inform you of this at this time, hope you except my apologies.
Bidding starts at $50.00. Good luck
