    In the interest of showing how enjoyable building an airplane can be and interesting people who might not have considered building a plane I've decided to film my Epic Sport build on my YouTube channel. Since I'm waiting on TEAM to send out the very first plans things are really just getting started.

    It won't take the place of my build log but will reinforce it.

    How do I put actual youtube windows in the forum instead of just the link?

    At the top-middle-right of the reply window, click the films trip icon and insert the link into the pop-up window.

    You might also need to change it from the mobile format to the web format, in addition to using the insert video (filmstrip) button:

    Mobile: https://youtu.be/zlzQXbwCYyw
    Web: https://youtube.com/watch?v=zlzQXbwCYyw

    Try it the way you have it first, then doctor the link if you need to.

    Not sure if there is something unique about your video or maybe I just gave you a bum steer.

    I don't guess it matters, so long as whoever is interested can get to them.

    Put www. in front of youtube.... i.e.


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeiyEls4FI4




    Someone please take the many hours of enjoyment out of building an airplane, because I have several hundred hours of enjoyment ahead of me I don't really enjoy... at all. Which makes it that much more excrutiating and glacial slow. In fact, it can become down right depressing :(

    To quote a bumper sticker.... I'd rather be flying

    Things like these youtubes help others to understand what to do. I truly like this kind of help. Thanks, because i know that making good youtubes with good educational value are pretty hard to make. Especially when you try to prevent them from getting boring. It took a looong time before i made good youtubes. ;)

    Thank you choppergirl for figuring out the www thing. Old saying: if you want to build a plane then build a plane, if you want fly a plane then buy a plane.

    Subscribed.

    I have over a hundred youtube videos I've made, the time it takes to upload these and deal with filming while simultaneously trying to build is monumental. Look forward to seeing your progress.
