I wanna build my first airplane
I'm so sorry if I'm at the wrong place, but this is my first time here, then I got lost between too many threads.
I'm Brazilian, this year I have been travelling in China and I met someone in a public park there, who had a model really cool. He made the RC model by himself. His airplane could fly about 2600 feet, really fast. I got inspired by him, so I'd like to ask here where/how should I start to build my first "toy". Is there any recommendation? Tutorial? Where to buy electrical parts?
Thanks since now,

Look in the EZFly thread, or a Fenix 100 from lazertoyz.com. The EZfly is available from fancyfoam.com as a kit or you can cut it out yourself, whereas the fenix 100 is only available as a kit. Both of those planes are simple ways to get started that are extremely durable and easy to repair. A lot of us source all of our electronics from hobbyking, and most build threads here will have a list of suggested motors/props/etc. For simplicities sake I usually run the E-max 2812 motor, 7x6 props, 20a esc, and the HK 9g servos. It's easy to order enough for 4-5 planes worth and just have them waiting

Building your plane is one thing, but being able to fly it is also very important.
There are many flight simulators available at all sorts of prices.
Something like this will get you going for very few $ and does the job just fine.
Practice, practice, practice while you are sorting out your build. You need to educate your thumbs so they know what to do without you telling them. Hold the sim radio the way you will hold it at the field. (not laying on the desk) and if you do build a flyable plane you have an excellent chance of making you first flight a success.

I am really grateful for all answers. I went to the Beginner's Forum and I found the same model I saw in China. I think I will do that one, F-35C.
