Do not learn to full auto a 250 or a 450. Keep those for 550 size and above (especially with scale as those are worse in the wing area to weight ratio).

Do baby auto (<1ft from ground) any RC heli. Numerous advantages. Ouce you are fully into scale flying and have the skills, then land with throttle if you really want.

Sorry I cannot give advice on body to build scale from. Ask around in other forums.
