Sagitta question


Did all three different wingspan versions of the sagitta share the same fiberglass fuselage? Thanks in advance for the group knowledge!

The three Sagittas were more than just stretches of one design, and the fuselages are all different.

No Sagitta came with a fiberglass fuselage from Airtronics... they are all after market parts. The 'Airtronics' 600, 900 and XC fuselages are all different sizes. The 600 & 900 are incrementally different, then the XC is huge.

Sagitta ............ 600 ..... 900 ..... XC
Wing Span ..... 2M ...... 100" .... 174"
Ave. Chord ..... 8.33" ... 9.00" ... 12.00"
Fuse Length ... 40" ...... 47" ...... 60" Airtronics
.................................................. 66" Bob Sealy Fiberglass Fuse

The 40-47-60 fuse lengths given above are as quoted by Airtronics, and include the rudder.

Regards,
Tim Engel

Bob offers a replacement fuse for the 900 (STD). It measures the same as the built up fuse. It was from a plane he use to offer called the Rookie.

Thanks guys. Thatís exactly what I needed. I picked up a nice FG fuselage for a sagitta and needed to know if there was a specific wingspan that went with the fuselage.

Does Bob still sell fuses for the Sagitta 900?
