Just bought my first plane, the Firebird Stratos RTF kit, should be here in a day or two! I don't have any questions as of yet, so I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I can't wait to get started. I was injured in Iraq so my hobbies have pretty much limited me to indoor activities, so the chance to get some sun for a change AND get some stick time will be very much welcomed.
Any advice about the plane I bought? Everything I read and watched said this was an excellent plane for beginners like myself. Originally, I was going to by a RTF Corsair kit but after watching the videos and reading about it, it seemed like a bit too much plane for me just yet. I'm also pretty interested in the Bi-plane models on the market, specifically the Albatros and Neuport 17, so that will probably be my next plane after a few months of flying with the Stratos.
So anyway, I look forward to interacting with the community here. The hobby has always intrigued me and now that I have the chance to participate I plan to be as involved as I can be.
