Sagitta 600 build instructions needed
I was very fortunate to recieve a Sagitta 600 kit today. A very fine gentleman had started it, well nearly finished it, years ago and now I have the pleasure of completing it. I am almost speachless to have this nostalgic graceful classic. I did insist the gentleman fly it first when its done before I accepted it.
It has the high polyhedral/ no aileron wing and I can add spoilers.
It is very well done so far and very straight. I could not have built it any better. The fuse,wing panels and tail sections are all built ready for sanding and then assembly. the plans are there but no manual.
Any help appreciated.

Send me a message to remind me to look. That might not be until early next week.
On mine, the fuselage would crack at the front of the fin. Recommend a bit of reinforcement there. I just added a bit more balsa on the outside, just in that area, sanded to blend in. Perhaps some fancy composite would not show as much, although my mod didn't show up much either.
Keep the tail as light as possible.
Keep it moving. If flown as slowly as some others, you may get a funny looking dutch roll followed by a sharp stall.

Looking for parts sheet
Any chance you have the parts page of the original plans. I purchased a copy of the plans and build instructions, but they were lacking the most essential part, the parts page. I would gladly pay you for a copy of this page. Let me know what you think

I looked and do not have one. Sorry. I never build them quite all stock anyways. I always build the 600's with a spar more like the 900's and use a 900 wing rod as well....
