Greetings...I'm interested getting started with DIY Drones, ArduCopters in particular. I have very limited experience. Can anyone recommend a good starter vehicl (rc helicopter, rc multicopter, etc.). I want to build up to an ArduCopter, but I kind of need a basic place to start. I'm a teacher, and I'm might bring students into the fold as well, but I reckon they'd need to start small as well. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
PS: I did read the Getting Started page of this website, but think I need flight time with something easier than full blown UAV.
