Re: Sagitta XC -- Worth building for general thermal soaring?
I have the short kit from DC. I am about 85% done with the wings.
I stopped building on it a while back to complete my Bubble Dancer.
I have not started on the fuse or tail. I am told that there is a
fiberglass fuse available that is longer/better/lighter than doing
the plan's wood fuse.
It has been a pretty cool build, so I say go for it! Be ready to
purchase a lot of wood. :-)
