Sagitta 600 Electric (oz13155)
About this Plan
Sagitta 600 Electric. Radio control sailplane for electric power. Wingspan 2m, wing area 600 sq in.
The original Sagitta 600 (oz5970) was a 1982 Lee Renaud sailplane design, published by RCM and later kitted by Airtronics. This here is a later redrawn version, modified and redrawn by John Torrance for electric power using a brushless outrunner.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "Hi again Outerzone, Attached is another of my redrawn RC glider plans. This time an electric version of the Airtronics Sagitta 600 glider.
As usual I have made some revisions to fix minor structural and control problems the original was supposed to have. The rudder is a little bigger and some reinforcement to the fuselage in the fin area. I also changed the bowden cable tailplane control as it can cause sloppy linkages if not perfectly done. Again just personal opinions, anyone doing the plane can revert to origional if desired. I do not like lite ply fuselage sides as they crack easily so I have revised to a reinforced balsa / ply design instead.
I have attached 2 pictures of the plane built by a friend. The plane thermalled almost out of sight on its maiden flight. I am considering altering this plan to a more modern AG 35 wing section in the near future. Will send it on to you when the drawings are finished. Keep up the great work you are doing. Regards from Bannister, Western Australia,"
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsIt's nice to see a 40 year old classic revived, with a lot of new thought on several areas the original needed, and all this served by a fine new plan. Careful with those OOS flights!

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
