Hi there,

Nice to meet you all.  I recently got my 801 tail kit and got a working bench ready, little bit tight but better than nothing. I'm looking forward to the build.  My motivation is once it is complete and (hopefully) it flies, I will get a feeling of what Wright Brothers felt!

Little warning for the forum though, I'm a complete newbie, so there will be lots of questions from me :)

Looking forward to meeting you at a future…
