Save your money. Go to your local hobby shop for your first purchase, don't do it online. Some suggestions for first planes:

Parkzone Firebird Stratos, Parkzone Super Cub, Multiplex Easy Cub or Multiplex Easy Star. All are 3 channel and are great starters. Most importantly they are high wing and pretty easy planes to master, but still have a little kick in them. Since you WILL crash them, parts are readily available at the shops for all of these. Parts for Hobby King, Banana, and Nitro are hard to come by, and will take some time to get.

Finally, try to find a local club in your area and take the plane there to try it out. Some of the folks in clubs are pretty good in terms of helping you out, although honestly you will find those that don't want you around because you're not an AMA member or part of their club. While understandable, it's a shortsighted view.

Anyway, have fun and look into joining a club if you can.

Stay away from the mail order stuff for now. All of the companies have their place, and once you know how to build or fix and mix match parts etc, they will come in handy.

Oh, and have fun, this is what this hobby is all about.
