    Hi Kasper,
    like automatik suggested , I started from FAQ in the main page , the UAV need not be big plane , smaller the better( < 2k.g) , a stable high wing trainer like planes are well suited, If you are new to RC flying , then a decent flight simulator is good investment to start with to learn RC flying first while you go through the FAQs and progress through more complex things.
