Default RV-7 #74466

Hi all,

I have just ordered my empennage, kit No 74466. I am based in Melbourne, Australia.
I am looking forward to the journey of building and eventually flying my own aircraft. I have been an avid reader of this forum for quite a while now. It is a great resource for newbie's like me.
I'm sure at some stage I will ask some really stupid questions, so have a laugh on me, then set me straight as you all have done for so many before me, and hopefully I will be able to return the favour for some other newbie one day.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

Cheers,
Joe Ovenden.

Default Welcome Joe

Welcome to the collective! It has been a great journey for myself, although very frustrating at times.

Best words of advice; know when to walk away and let things cool down, ferment a little! It will do wonders for your sanity and quality of build.

Cheers,
Dan

Default Congratulations

Congratulations Joe.
Heed Dan's advise. Learn when to walk away and you're scrap pile will be smaller. Wish I could do as I say instead of what I do.

Hi all,

Thanks for the advice.
Rob, I'll take you up on the offer one day. I have been flying a mates RV12 out at Lilydale, so it is not too far from your place. I will give you a call next time I am out that way.

Cheers,
Joe
