How did I forget my Sagitta?

I still have my old rudder/elevator Sagitta 600. She flies beautifully but I would need to add some form of glide path control for my relatively short field. And that's assuming I want to bother with even a short Hi-start. I figure I have two choices.

1. Graft a nose contoured for a motor on the perfectly sound airframe. She weighed 32 ounces with a 450mah Ni-cad and some lead in the nose and I often used some ballast. Simply using a windmilling prop as a brake would would take care of the glide path.

2. Turn the old girl into cash.
