It should be a simple build to get your feet wet, and not too difficult to fly.

We're here for building advice, but make sure that you contact a local club to get assistance with getting you back into the air.

Glad that you have returned to the hobby. !

+ 1 on what Tom c said. but you did not say what kind of radio gear you are planning, So if new and if your budget will handle it and all of the new tech stuff I would recommend at least 10 chnl as that would support you for the next few years.

Welcome back
