Hi n_eisnor,

Like nuker said, and Welcome to the hobby.

If you don't already know this, you are pretty much on the doorstep of the local hobby shop (RC Wings and Wheels). It is just east of the 4 way stop near the post office and a few hundred feet past the Blockhouse fire hall. Drop in and say hi to Errol Joudrey and his wife. They can help you out.

There is also a local rc club known as the South Shore RC Club. Ask Errol about this also. They have been using a site up in Pinehurst, but will be moving to their new field ( off Big Lots Rd) sometime this year.

Might be a good idea to talk to other members of the SSRC Club, get out to the field and see what goes on and if you luck out maybe even get a few minutes of dual control on a buddy box.

As to what type of plane to start with, most people seem to go with a 40 size glow fuel powered trainer. These planes are high wing (like the small Cessnas, DHC Beaver/Otter, etc). If you go this route, there are a few good trainers to consider - Eagle II, Skyward 40, PT40, Kadet, etc.
Radio wise at a minimum go for a four channel, but a 6ch would be more useful in the long run.
