Thankyou everyone for noticing my very first post. Thankyou for your kind replies.
Perhaps when I fly, I'll try the spad concept. For now though, I wish to try the balsa wood building. I want to try forming it; cutting and sanding and using "dope".
I'm going to start this weekend, with Guy's help and yours, if I need to ask it of you.

By the way, Green@3D, I'm living 2hrs Northwest of Edmonton. And what does "Bahahahaha" mean? Is that a laugh, or a cry?

If you stick at this hobby long enough, one winters production could look like this.

Good Luck

Let us know how many you have left over after the season. I remember a few years ago building like this and had one trimmed out and in the first race and heat of the year in Regina midaired. Sure spoiled the day for points.
Good luck on the year for going fast and turning left.
ps: Nice looking aircraft.

Hello and as others have said, welcome to the hobby!
I am currently indroducing my girlfriend to RC and teaching her to fly as well.
I find building to be very rewarding, even tho it is hard at times to wait for drying glue, (I am limiting the use of CA to when absolutely necessary and use white and gorilla type glue mainly).
Start off with simple designs and work your way up, I am currently building a Top Flight C182 and it pays off to have experiance with these types of kits.
The thing is to gain experiance and with each level you attain, the patience to do things in the right sequence and not try to 'jump the gun' will pay off and you will feel accomplishment and not be discouraged to the point where you give up.
I am in Edmonton, so if you every get down this way let me know and you have a standing invite to visit.
Do not ever think that you are a bother, most of us here cherish the opportunaty to divulge any and all experiance and advice to those willing to listen.
Can I retire now?
