900 This was not a guess

43" is pretty short. More 2 meter size. I suggest it is a 600 fuse.

From another sagitta post. Info from Espirt2.
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
Wondering if it is generic sagitta fuselage to long for the 600 and to short for the 900.

Ok, cool, thanks all. This means I can get a short kit for the 900 and the wings should be just right for this fuselage. Awesome. I love it when a plan comes together!

Thanks for the thought, but I might fail to live up to that.

It does depend upon where you start and stop. A lot of people include the rudder in the fuselage length, others are more literal, and the 'fuse' length is the fuse only. But then, the rudder hinge line is angled, not vertical, so are they measuring to the top or the bottom. It would help if folks would declare what they're measuring. Mr Kite's photos make it crystal clear... thanks.

The numbers I posted earlier, and that Gratter re-posted above, are as quoted by Airtronics, including the rudder.

Regards,
Tim Engel
