Aquila XL vintage build RTF


This is a beautiful vintage build 4 meter quila XL. The fuse was made from plywood not balsa. Beautiful vintage paint work. The covering is as good as it can be! Beautiful look and work. Has vintage style spoilers. It also comes with a nitro motor pod that uses an enya 10 I had re done to bring to new specs. The engine is new basically. This motor pod is installed at the wing roots as normally done. These wings would need a 80Ē long box for shipping and that would price it at around $250 or more to ship to say the East coast or Chicago area to give an example. Local pick up would be best. I posted a video of the last time I flew it here in chino with some homies. Very very beautiful vintage bird. A rare one of a kind for sure. Lands easy just needs a bit of runway. Flys itself basically.

Beautiful Aquila XL!


The color scheme and especially the pin striping are so similar to Alan Gornick Jr.ís Hobie Hawk, I wonder if it was his too.
Nice catch Larry.

I have a NIB dreamcatcher Aquila XL kit. This is the one with a fiberglass fuse. Beautiful kit. I can be talked out of it for anyone looking to want one. I should say that I wouldn’t sell it for anything under $750. Just an FYI for the Aquila XL lovers and builders.

Thanks for the thoughts on the XL. I sent a note to Tim yesterday. He told me Airtronics cut 50 kits and then Dream Catcher made quite a few less. I will post a future report. I now have pretty much every old Glider I ever had interest in. Until one shows up that I forgot of Course. I hope you all have a Wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by Loved ones..LJ
