I've been lurking around for a while and finally joined up. My goal is to build a Champ (5F1) from a kit and would welcome some advice. I'm coming from almost zero knowledge, except that as a kid I loved my Radio Shack project kit (anyone remember those?). The past couple months I've been learning about electronics, practicing my soldering skills, and reading tons of info on the internet. I've started playing around with op-amp chips like the LM386 to understand basic circuits, read schematics, etc. If you could go back to where I am now, what would you tell yourself to take as your next step?
