Learn to adapt what you already have, like some sandpaper glued to a stick. Use the tools you have at hand, and get started, for it will take longer than anticipated.

Don't run out and buy what ever is written into the instructions, for it may delay the construction such that you loose interest and buy an (Ugh) ARF.

Look and measure twice, cut once.
Your best tools are your eyes.
A sharp blade is a good blade.
Take your time.
Read the instructions.
The right tool for the job.
