I'd recommend a simple quadcopter like in my article here: http://drone-pilot.blogspot.co.uk/20...at-to-buy.html
. If you can afford it, maybe start straight away with a Naza without GPS and then you can upgrade later, but the kk2.0 board is perfect to learn with.
There are loads of really good deals around on Frames,motors & ESCs and you just need to add your own flight controller. Have a look at some of these deals on RCTimer, but make sure you get a package that has the SimonK flashed ESCs.
When you want to add FPV equipment then there is a great shop in OZ that I can recommend and you will get good support: http://www.mongrelgear.com.au/
