Help!

SITAR SPECIAL RC Airplane Kit 83” Manual?


Have a SITAR SPECIAL RC Airplane Kit 83” kit on the way. No manual with it. I may be able to get'er done with out but would love to have the extra info.
If anyone has a lead on a manual would appreciate hearing from you!

Thanks,
B

Also... anyone near me? New in the area, don't know of any good slopes here or anyone to fly with...
I do have a new Graupner winch untested. Done high start plenty but winch rc is new for me.

I don’t have the manual, or the plane. Sigh. I’ve wanted one since the mid 80’s.

Martin Webbershock from Webbershock Designs is producing the Dassel to order which is what the Sitar Special is based on. He probably can assist if no one else has info. Very nice guy to deal with.

I have a friend that may be talked out of the Sitar that he has. I think he has the 100.

He’s in Germany. Makes Radical Jazz and other stunning F3B beasts.
If your friend can be talked out of his sitar, and you can be talked into shipping….

I found Martin and sent a message, we'll see where that goes.
I will talk to Mike soon and see how he feels about. Been trying to get him to let me have his Sagitta XC fiberglass kit otherwise I will scratch build.

It’s australia. The sun is really strong. I use one as a shade sail as I fly the other…

LOL...

Guess I'll do scratch... I know you guys need the shade!
I have Sagitta 600, 900 on the table now, the XC to do, a Legend, Antares, ASW 28, and a bunch more. Trying to rebuild my fleet after an arson fire a few months ago.

Fires are no good. Mind you, I've hosted a Viking funeral for planes occasionally.


600, 900…. I don’t own one. Hahaha. I have several of each.
Oh
And this is next in the cue.

And I keep looking at the Altezza from Carolina Custom Kits.

Sigh.

How’s my Sitar Acquisition progressing? You know you really don’t need it.

Nah, mine is mine! But I'll see if Mike will cut loose of one of his.

Looks like a Sagitta

Hahaha. Yeah. It’s very sagitta. Modern Ag foil, laser cut. Will be interesting to see how it flies not sure that a classic should be changed so dramatically.

And I can organise safe shipping from LongBeach CA to Aus. Mighta done it once or twice…
