Thanks everyone very much! I've loved every minute of the build, I was concerned that the flying may be a bit of an anti-climax because I fly all the time. It wasn't and isn't! It's far better than I thought it would be because it's the realisation of a dream, of a major goal to build something that CAN fly.
The pride you feel when finished is quite intense and well worth the entire process.
I can't over state how important this forum is to me and how much I used it. Before every build session I would read every post I could regarding what I was about to do. This allowed me to avoid most of the major issues, although inevitably I'd find different smaller ones! Whenever I had a question there'd be 10 answers by morning.. can't beat that.
Thanks everyone and thanks Doug.
The problem is... the work shop at home is empty now .... hmmmm
Safe flying everyone and happy building. Reminds me of something on the Van's aircraft demo video. "You either have to build it or get to build it"
Im definitely in the later group, always have been.
