Hey guys!

Im a total noob to the art of making and breaking planes, but what Ive done so far I have absolutely loved!

Started out about Xmas 2016 randomly came across Experimental Airlines build vids and watched a lot of them, then came across FT videos. Watched an absolute load of them and found them invaluable in terms of morale-boosting as well as technically useful. Loving the general aviation stuff too and have looked up Pietenpol builds and flying lessons :D

I've done a vid of my first build and maiden flight (let me know if/where I can post that in case anyone wants to see it) and looking forward to getting my foamboard glider up in the air with its 60" wingspan!

Thanks a lot for having me, and I look forward to hopefully contributing something back.

Cheers!

Cheers!

Welcome to the hobby and the forum. I enjoyed your balance of narration and motor audio in your video. Keep 'em coming.

Not sure if/how this thread updates, but I made a new video on a new (non-personal) Youtube account :)

It was very windy!

Cheers guys, and hope you all got some flying in!
