Better not to chose a side in how you will be governed, but choose according to the times you are in
Choice is the key to moving forward, I don't like going into bars that only have one door. I like to keep my options open.

For the most part everyone down here is nice. I might not agree with everyone but I would enjoy having a beer and a conversation with most people on this forum.

Last one I built was years ago. I don't have the time to spend on that anymore.

Speaking of points on this forum, being not forum literate, how do you know if you have points?

my very first airplane I built with my dad in 1988 was an actual kit. I remember getting the flat working board from a hardware shop, clearing a desk and making it my work bench. Then I had the plans T-Pinned to the surface and started to overlay the spars and ribs and CA each and every part. It took nearly 6 months for me to build it at the time. Since then, every plane i've bought has been an ARF, thank god.

I am kinda of new to this, never built a kit and started with warbirds from parkzone, many, many crashes later I have mostly EDF's and 3d planes which I can sport fly.
I have gotten really, really good at repairs
I am trying to learn 3d, no crashes yet, but they are coming.

If I had a place to do it, and the Doctor could prescribe me a pill for patience, I would love to do a kit. I just think I would get fed up,box it up, and forget it though....
