Hi Joe,

Welcome to the forum, I'm sure you will find a heap of great info here.
Feel free to ask questions or just show us what you are doing.

Maybe you can drop me an email or a PM with your details so I can add them to our database for when I send out the regular updates to the Tripoli WA group.

Cheers

G'day Joe, you would not be the first to return to the hobby after time away, welcome to the forum.

I'm sure the WA guys will look after you, they are a great bunch. :D

Welcome Joe. It is great that the hobby is expanding and getting easier to get the appropriate parts and motors. That is what has attracted quite a few back to it. Things just keep getting better and better :)
