My Brother has no interest, so Dad is stuck with me!

Keep up the good work TyTy. I have twin daughters that are 19 years old now and they have been flying with me for 10 years.

Thanks for spending the time to post a build log, Tyler. People here really enjoy following them. Especially from nice young people like yourself.

welcome

welcome to the hobby, I hope it stays with you all your life, you're lucky to have a dad who flies, for me it was my grandfather, dad didn't want to get involved. As for you dad I've trained many young people and although few stay with it its a lot of fun when they finally get it and really start flying, and the flying together so best wishes sam

Thanks Sam. She can handle the simulators really well and has flown my Allegro up high and my little micro Champ around the front yard. I think she will do just fine, although I do hope this little model has got some glide to it. We may end up trying to find a small folding prop for it.

So far I'm enjoying this kit. It is really well designed, and the interlocking structure has made it perfect for Tyler's first build. Tyler is amazed at how sandpaper can take down balsa so fast. LOL
