Vintage Sig yak

I have a vintage yak from Sig, I think its a p18? any how i bought it at a yard sale got it converted to electric but thought id use the old 72 MHz radio system. Well on take off apparently i forgot to extend the antenna and as you can guess went out of range and crashed (thankfully it was only a couple feet off the ground) broke the wing. can anyone point me in the direction where i can either buy a wing or get the plans to rebuild it? Please help. I contacted the manufacturer and no luck. Its a beautiful plane and i want to get it going again(2.4 GHz spektrum system) for my disabled father. Any info would be very helpful considering this plane hasn't been produced in probably 30+ years.

Hello Flywing

The plans for the Yak 18P,PM at one time where available from Model Airplane News. If they do not have the plans anymore, I have a set. Let me know and I will make a copy for you. Love the Yak on my bucket list but bigger.

Cheers Don
