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 meet-up,

Enjoy your weekend,

Erturk

Hi Erturk,

Congratulations on getting started!  Its a big project, but one that I found very very rewarding.  If you have not yet run across it, its worthwhile to check out Charles Liminig's 801 build log at.... http://www.liming.org/ch801/     I found it helpful while I was building mine.   Good luck, and above all have fun!

Good luck with this. I'm still a newbie after 50 years of fixing airplanes. Always something new to learn. Tom
