That is quite an impressive restoration......commendable for getting it back in the air.

I'd like to get my Gnome 2M built...great fun.

Great thread


Found this thread while searching for information on a 99" glider I just purchased from an estate sale. While I'm still in the "what the heck is this model" stage, I believe it is a beautiful copy of a Sagitta 900 in almost pristine condition. Relatively new to RC gliders, been flying everything else for many years. Should be a fun journey.

Great job on your restoration! Will be following closely while doing my research.

Estate sales have some good finds, often at a good price.

I'm finishing a Sig Kadet Senior acquired from one, that was partially built...had to build a new wing as the built wing had a half inch twist (up) on the right wing tip but it was a good find.

You have a picture of the 99" sailplane?
