I would start with looking in your area to see if there is an existing flying group. If so, then hooking up with them and seeing what kind of planes are common in the area (it is nice to see working examples of what you are going to fly). And you could get some instruction.

Beyond this, I think this is a great trainer plane:

It is not a kit so much, but there is some building that goes in it (you said you wanted to build). The gear from this plane could be used in many other different kind of planes.

Take a loook at the beginner forum

There's a lot of helpful information there when you are getting your first plane.

After consulting the training forum, get a decent radio, a decent LiPoly charger a couple of decent batteries and a GWS Slow Stick. Then in a few weeks (depending on you) get Stevens Aero's Stik replacement wing kit. It uses all the same components and is an aileron trainer you won't get tired of for quite a while.
