Thanks

Any tips on how to start a builders thread?

And what makes a good sticky?

Build Threads

3 things make a good build thread:

1) Lots of pictures of the build

2) A good statement in the first post of how the build is planned to proceed. Over what time, any planned modifications, etc.

3) Be sure to include a final flight report including photos. Add Video if you have a video camera.

The best build threads occure when several builders join the thread with info from their build of the same kit/plane. Now the story of one build becomes a collection of tips and photos and advice from many builders. This becomes a real resource to future builders. Sometimes the kit manufacturer will post a link to that build thred to supplement their own instructions.

I love build threads, even if I never plan to build that plane.



Stickys?

Stickeys usually occur because numerous people send notes to the forum moderator recommending a thread as very useful/valuable/helpful. Or the moderator spots such a thread and decides it should be a sticky.

Thanks...

What about if you wanted to write an article? Do they have to be submitted and checked etc...? Or is it best to do a long post instead?

I do mine as posts. You will see them all over the forum. In fact I have a multi-chapter e-book in one of the forums.

I don't know the process for submitting articles in any other fashion.
