I'll agree that getting an experienced person to help with the initial setup is handy. If that isn't an option, don't be afraid to try it solo. With a little planning and a good place to fly, it isn't too bad. Just make sure to range check and flight check the plane carefully before taking the plunge. Two common mistakes are to have the CG wrong which would almost certainly end in a crash or reversing one or more of the controls (elevator or rudder) which also ends in crash.

Final thought, the ideal place to fly would be a large field (at least 2 football field size) with short cut grass. Good luck!
