If you post your location you may be able to find an experienced pilot willing to come out with you and help you get started in the right direction. I'm currently doing that with a new pilot myself. No reason to make all the mistakes we've all made.
Greetings from Canada and welcome to the forum!
I'm sure you will find this forum to be a valuable resource and a great connection with fellow Phantom pilots who are ready and willing to provide you with advice when you need it as well as answer any questions you may have.
