As a kid, I always wanted to get into RC planes. Just never happened. Jump to now. I found the FT videos and being a modeler and scratch builder for a long time. I was hooked on getting involved in building my own planes. I ordered my first kit (in a rush as usual) and off I went. Of course, I learned I ordered something not for a beginner after reading some more. Luckily I have a laser cutter from my side business of laser cutting parts for model builders and table top gaming accessories. I got to work on setting up the files to do the mini scout on my laser cutter. Getting ready to build the mini scout and get myself back on track for my first flight. Once I destroy several of those and feel more comfortable at flying I will branch out into more builds.
