I'm very close to first flight after 5 years of building. I wish Zenith would have had this site up and running 5 years ago. I have learned alot from other builders. But scratch building has its own world so I'm creating this blog for scratch builders (701), such as myself, to have an avenue to share ideas (and frustrations). The feeling of success in your building is well worth the frustrations that are mostly unavoidable. So just share what your going through right now and don't be afraid to ask questions of other 701 scratch builders or vent your frustrations. Although mainly for 701 scratch builders everyone is invited! Keep it clean and on subject. Best of luck and success in COMPLETING your plane.
