Okay new entry, I posted one as a comment before yes I am hopeless.

Finally a little progress at least.

I ordered the 4 star today.

So far I have an OS40FP, two working servos, another servo that needs a case and gears, batteries, oh and the kit ! soon! tm.

I still need to build a workbench but can cobble something together. I will star with the build log when the box arrives !

Since I posted that I have finished the benchwork almost. Just 2x4 saw horses with some lumber between them. I will post pictures before I start the build.

Till then!
