I started out a few years back with a high wing trainer plane and I'd still recommend doing it that way but my second plane was one of these super cheap, super simple scratch built flying wings. You can draw the plans for it (not to scale) on a post it note and build it in an afternoon or two no problem. I'm glad I started with the high wing trainer but after flying the flying wing I did feel like it could have been my first plane and I would have been ok. The flying wing is basically indestructible, and if you do manage to kill it it's so easy to build another it's hardly a bother.

If you're not buying complete airplane kits HobbyKing is the way to go in my opinion. Sure their shipping isn't the cheapest but when their parts cost 1/5 the price they do locally, it's worth it.
