Here is a club site in CA. http://www.aeromaniacs.com/
They have downloadable free plans. The one shown being held by its designer (Bill Osborne) is for total beginner CL flying. The good thing about these 1/2A beginner planes is that they use a bolt-on (including tank) 1/2A engine and they bounce off the ground with little or no harm.
The site has a plans tab on top that will take you to other planes. They show both plans and building instructions, all downloadable.
Once you can fly these small planes, a larger one should be easier to fly. If you decide to use a .25, the SIG Skyray .35 is an easily built, easiily repaired plane that can be used by a beginner but can do stunts when you are able.
Once you decide what you want, make sure you ask about setup things like control movement and line spacing.
If you prefer kits, SIG has (.049-.061) Skyray, (.09-.15) Akromaster, (.19-.35) Skyray 35. Brodak has (.049) Brodak Basic Trainer, (.09-.15) Junior Flite Streak, (.19-.35) Flite Streak). Actually both SIG and Brodak have lots more, these are just the ones I have built.
Good luck whatever you choose, and welcome to control line. You may find that it is just as addictive as RC. Many folks on these forums fly both.
