Going cross-country are we?

Might be worth trying the thermal forums.

Yes, and that's not all ...

GFox,
I have the plans for all three sizes of Sagitta, plus:
Full set of flying surfaces and joiners - serviceable, but old and one tip is original, one foam - still did a lot of kms in that form. Was built around 1985.
Fuselage is there, less canopy block, but is cactus - too many whoopsies and fixits and not worth repair. My plan is/was to build another fus with an extra six inches or so on the tail moment and three on the nose - the original was too short coupled for good handling (didn't stop it flying over 500km XC and setting two Aus records that still stand!)
The good news is that I am now doubtful I will ever get it going again and the whole lot is available as a package if anyone wants - price neg/offer.
The bad news is that I am in Melbourne!
Will not separate plans out from the rest.
Cheers,
PeteM

I have a set of plans for an XC Sagitta and like Pete M am unlikely to build from if anyone else wants them. Spent a bit of time spotting and driving for that big Saggi too back in the dim dark past

Best way to start construction is with buying a Balsa factory

Will do

No worries, have printed out your number and will call mid-morn tomorrow, work permitting.
And g'day Tim, was great to catch up at Camperdown.
Another thought re plans - one of the USA woodie companies was reviving all the Airtronics saiplanes as plans and some short kits - forget name, but I'm sure they had the XC plan available.
Pete
