Default Finally did it!!

Ordered the Empennage kit today. I've been reading posts on here for a few years now, visited the factory and had a test flight in the 14, and today took the plunge. Never built anything bigger than an air fix model so looking forward to a steep learning curve.....

Congrats and best wishes on your project!

Any tips for visiting the factory for a demo? I am considering going out there next month.
