Default Plans for Airtronics AQUILA GRANDE Glider circa 1978.

I bought a partially built plane and the box contained page 1 of 3 for the plans. No manual. Any idea as to where I can get complete set so I can complete the unit? Thanks

Also trying to finish up an Aquila and need the Klett Aileron & Elevator Horn Bearing for the Rudder Hinges. The Klett Plastics numbers on the package is AB-4 and #421. If anyone has one or more packages of these, I would like to purchase them. Thanks, TJ

Did you find that rudder hinge you needed? I may have a suitable substitute.
